    Who We Are

    Founded in 2011, UrbanSitter makes it easier than ever for families to find, book and pay caregivers for the entire household, from babysitters and nannies to dog walkers and senior care.

    With millions of registered users across the country, UrbanSitter is solving the caregiver dilemma for families everywhere. Additionally, UrbanSitter’s Corporate Benefits program helps companies support and retain their employees by offering UrbanSitter as an employee benefit.

    How We're Different

    Only UrbanSitter taps into personal networks and the social graph to help families connect with caregivers hired by their friends, moms groups, and parents from their kid’s school. A sophisticated search algorithm, real-time scheduling tools, and instant payment technology bring efficiency to an otherwise time-intensive process.

    As a company, UrbanSitter's core values include transparency, grit, scrappiness, decisive action, empathy and equity. We're looking for team members who share and embody these values.

    What's In It For You

    We offer competitive salaries and benefits that include comprehensive health coverage, stock options, remote/in-office/hybrid work options, quarterly caregiver credits, monthly/quarterly recognition awards, and a wide variety of social team events.

    Our company is backed by Advance Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, DBL Investors, First Round Capital, Match Group - a division of IAC, Menlo Ventures, Rustic Canyon, Aspect Ventures, GingerBread Capital, A-Grade Investments and several angel investors.
