To match people with jobs, Task Rabbit does two things.
First, it allows job searchers, which they call "Taskers," to make a profile which lists their hourly rate.
The service also has expanded with an IRL event, Speed Roomating, in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to connect a community of people looking for a housemate, making it faster and easier than ever to find someone to share your space with.
