Edmonton-headquartered Jobber has raised $76 million in a growth equity round led by US investment firm Summit Partners.
With this new funding, Jobber is well on its way to fulfill its mission to become a comprehensive software provider for home service businesses.
The financing will be used to continue the growth of Jobber’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) business, which provides management software for the home services sector, companies such as home repair, landscaping and cleaning providers.
Jobber plans to use the financing to continue investing in research and development, sales and marketing, as well as customer acquisition.
It also plans to pursue rapid growth, intending to hire 200 more employees on top of its current 250, over the next year.
In 2020 Jobber was named one of the Fastest-Growing Companies in North America and one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Culture.
