About NiceJob

We’re changing the way people handle and grow their reputation.

Not that long ago (just 24 months) we were just a few developers with an app that automates the collection of customer reviews. Now we’re a rapidly growing startup (10-20% monthly recurring revenue growth every month) that serves more than a thousand businesses across North America. Whether it’s software that helps collect positive reviews, or using those reviews to get more referrals and sales, we use technology to give people products that ensure that their great work never goes unrecognized, unappreciated or unrewarded.

For the people who run their websites or local marketing on NiceJob, our app represents a solution they love. With NiceJob, skilled service providers no longer unreasonably have to also be digital marketing authorities to acquire new business.

And that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re thinking about the future, too. With our product team working on using things like natural language processing and machine learning to be able to surface reviews at the point of purchase, we’re reimagining how businesses influence purchase decisions. We're helping people be financially independent and able to continue to contribute to their community, their friends, and their families.

Why NiceJob?

Be an entrepreneur without any of the headaches of being an entrepreneur. We believe in a high level of autonomy for our engineering team, letting you take ownership of projects you're truly passionate about.
