TaskRabbit Launches in Seattle

May 29, 2012

Seattleites have been huge supporters of TaskRabbit for years — we’ve received countless requests to set up shop in their hometown. Today, we’re excited to announce that TaskRabbit is officially live in Seattle! We’re proud to launch in this cool, passionate, and innovative city.

We’re thrilled to join such a thriving, leading-edge tech community — Seattle’s home to digital pioneers and entrepreneurial leaders like Amazon, Microsoft, and Starbucks. For their parts, Seattleites are busy, tech-savvy professionals in need of what TaskRabbit provides: a little free time.

The hundreds of Seattle TaskRabbits who’ve graduated from our extensive vetting process are standing by to help Seattleites get things done. Over the past few months of market testing, we’ve seen a few Tasks become pretty popular in Seattle — things like gardening, personal organization, and handyman duties.

Our first Seattle TaskPosters are already discovering unique ways to use the service to make their lives a little easier. We’ve seen people hire TaskRabbits to take lecture notes, transport a family of rescued cats to an animal shelter, and even hand-carry a marriage certificate to get authenticated.

So, Seattle: What will you Task? Perhaps you’re craving a Bacon Blue Burger and Butterfinger shake from Red Mill or a meatball sandwich from Salumi but alas, they don’t deliver? Is that pile of unorganized photos from the past five years still collecting dust in the den? Get caught in another unexpected rainstorm? Consider us your on-demand umbrella delivery service.

What are you waiting for, Seattle? Get Tasking.
