COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — HomeAdvisor, a website that helps connect homeowners with repair workers, just opened a permanent location in Colorado Springs, bringing more than 250 jobs.

HomeAdvisor is the second-largest tech employer in Colorado, and you might recognize the company’s president because his hometown is Colorado Springs.

“I’m a fourth generation Coloradan. I grew up here,” said Craig Smith, President of HomeAdvisor. “I went to Palmer High School. I went to UCCS and was part of El Pomar Fellowship Program as well.”

Colorado Springs was one of 10 different markets HomeAdvisor looked at to open this facility, up against cities like Austin, Seattle, and Portland, but they couldn’t resist the Rocky Mountains.

“We wanted to invest more in the Colorado community,” Smith said. “We have three offices here now, 1,900 employees in total and there’s no better place than Colorado Springs to expand.”

They’re currently employing 140 people locally and looking to add 110 more.

“That’s terrific news for Colorado Springs to have good paying jobs like this for professionals working in an industry, in a vibrant workplace, a very creative work space,” Dirk Draper, President and CEO of the Colorado Springs Business Alliance, said.

We’re talking pinball machines, photo booths, and beer on tap.

“We’re looking for ambitious, hardworking, career-minded individuals,” said Smith.

HomeAdvisor is looking to hire locals for several different positions including sales and customer service. There are no minimum education requirements and experience is helpful but not necessary.

You can expect to earn $50,000 to $60,000 a year on average. The top 10 percent make over $100,000 a year.
