Home service management software Jobber, Edmonton, Alberta, has been named to Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies list for empowering small home service businesses with the technology to transform their operations. Jobber’s platform helps small businesses stay organized, connect with customers, grow revenue and better compete against large corporations. The company’s technology supports more than 50 home service industries, including HVAC, plumbing, lawn care, cleaning and more.

“We’re proud to be the first home service management software recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies,” says Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber.

“Home services is one of the last large categories to embrace technology,” explains Pillar. “Prior to Jobber, most of our customers were using pen and paper to manage day-to-day business operations. We’re on a mission to transform the home service space from top to bottom. The opportunity for Jobber in this multi-billion dollar industry is massive and only getting bigger every day. The innovation possibilities are near limitless, and Jobber is just getting started.”

Fast Company’s MIC honors businesses making an impact on both industry and culture. This year’s list features 434 businesses across 39 countries. Jobber is included as a top 10 company in the software (enterprise) sector.

To develop the MIC list, Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out businesses across the globe and throughout myriad industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

“At a time of increasing global volatility, this year’s list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world,” says Amy Farley, Fast Company senior editor, who oversaw the issue with Deputy Editor David Lidsky. “These companies are applying creativity to solve challenges within their industries and far beyond.”
