TaskRabbit works with a three-step model: - A person posts a job and the platform suggests three contractors, along with their hourly rates, who represent a range of prices and experience levels. - A tasker can accept or cancel the job as per his/her convenience and availability. - The tasker completes the job and the payment is processed through the app. After the task is complete, the poster can review and rate the service. The recruitment process begins with an online application, after which the applicants’ background is checked and an in-person interview is carried out. After being shortlisted, taskers specify their skills and interests, and are accepted into the database. In 2016 ‘Instant Matching’ was launched, which lets anyone book a job within five minutes and have it completed within 90 minutes.
