The House Man

Chores are for suckers.

Ever met a man who likes washing dishes? No? Exactly.  

That’s why there’s Porter, an online concierge handling everything from house cleaning to dog walking to folding your collection of T-shirts.

Based in Silicon Beach, Porter is highly selective about their hires. Each person must be fluent in English and have a car, smartphone, three references and at least two years of experience.

And like most tech companies, Porter prides itself on its transparency. Home cleaning is based on the number of beds/baths instead of square footage and you pay a flat rate of $25 per hour for dog walkers.

And Porter’s walkers are happy to a snap a pic of your pup so you can see his slobbering face.

Much more enjoyable than picking up his business.
