About

Homejoy is a company providing an online platform which connects customers with house cleaners. The company was based in San Francisco. Homejoy serves the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom for a total of over 31 major cities. Homejoy was founded in 2010 by siblings Adora and Aaron Cheung, who worked as CEO and VP of Growth, respectively. Originally, the company was named Pathjoy. Co-founder Adora Cheung did the first few cleaning jobs herself, and until late 2013 continued to work at least one cleaning job per month. On July 17, 2015, Homejoy announced that it would cease operations on July 31, 2015. The company cited difficulties in maintaining profitability, as well as lawsuits over whether its workers are contractors or employees.
