Empowering families and caregivers
What we do
UrbanSitter is an app and website that’s making it easier than ever for families to find, book and pay trusted care for the entire household, from child care to tutors, pet sitters, housekeepers, and senior care. Caregivers looking for jobs come to UrbanSitter for direct access to flexible work that fits their schedule.
Who we are
Since our launch in 2011, UrbanSitter has grown into a diverse community of over a million caregivers speaking more than 25 languages. Headquartered in San Francisco, UrbanSitter is led by working mom co-founders, Lynn Perkins, and Andrea Barrett.
Why we do it
We are passionate about empowering families and caregivers, so they can "say yes" to more in life—pursuing their choice of career, education, family and self.
