Handy is extremely popular, with more than ten thousand workers on Handy’s listings. There is an average of ten jobs completed for every cleaner that works on Handy, although some of the cleaners are dormant and have not completed a job in a while.

Handy is worth approximately five hundred million dollars, which is a great growth pattern considering that it was founded out of a dorm room by two college kids.

Many of the workers on Handy are not working more than twenty hours per week, so this adds a dynamic for people with kids or those who do not earn enough income from their current job so they can make some side money.
