Thumbtack is a local help providing platform working mainly in the United States of America. It was first started in 2009 by three friends - Marco, Jonathan, and Sander. This platform was developed as a solution to bring together people and professionals easily. It was seen that professionals, especially in local jobs, found it a little difficult to get customers that often. Also, people living in an area would have a hard time finding the right people to get their jobs done. Thus, to help both these classes of the society, the three men came up with Thumbtack, where one can find a listing of all the local businesses and professionals to get the respective job done as well as a customer base for the professionals.
