As a result, experiences are broken for both customers and service professionals, each largely relying upon word of mouth to discover the other. The industry can easily be 1.5-2x larger than it is today if the frictions in user and professional's journeys are removed - and the experiences made more meaningful and joyful.Job Description :Over the last 5 years in the Urbanclap journey, we have grown from a single monolith to 65 microservices.
