At hipages Group, we create effortless solutions that help tradies streamline and grow their business and delight their customers. We are inspired and driven by our purpose of transforming the trade industry, building better lives for everyone.
Our hipages Group journey extends far from where we started: as two friends bringing their idea to life at the back of a garage to a listed company with a vision of becoming the most trusted partner in the trade industry.
The epic ride started in 2004 when we launched hipages Group’s founding company, hipages. In 2008, we launched hipages’ Pay Per Lead (PPL) model before transitioning to its current subscription model in 2021. It is now Australia’s largest online tradie marketplace.
In 2021, we also launched hipages Group’s first SAAS platform to ease the burden of everyday admin for trade businesses, Tradiecore and listed on the ASX. An investment in leading property management platform, Bricks + Agent followed shortly after as well as an expansion across the ditch. In December 2021, we acquired New Zealand’s leading tradie marketplace, Builderscrack.
10 million home improvement jobs posted on hipages alone.
34,000 tradie members.
From a garage start-up to the leading technology company shaping the on-demand tradie economy, our business has evolved over the years to better solve our customers’ pain points.
hipages Group is born at the back of a Sydney garage when two childhood friends, Roby Sharon-Zipser and David Vitek, create Home Improvement Pages, an online trade directory.
Home Improvement Pages becomes hipages, the leading online marketplace allowing homeowners to post their job directly onto the platform and connect with local tradies. To date, over 3 million Australians have used hipages to find a tradie.
Our team launches the hipages app for mobile phones, making it even easier and convenient for Aussie homeowners to find and hire trusted tradies on the go.
