14 Years. 2 Entrepreneurial Founders. 1 Great Beginning.
It’s been an epic ride. From two friends with bringing their idea to life in the back of a garage… to a talented, dedicated and passionate team of over 300+.
hipages started in a garage in 2004 when childhood friends David Vitek and Roby Sharon-Zipser decided to tackle the inefficiencies that came with undergoing home improvement.
They believed in technology as a driver to streamline the entire process of getting a job done, from sourcing quotes all the way through to paying and recommending tradies online.
Our company has been built on that mission and, 14 years on, our passionate team of 300+ still focuses on building technology that solves the frictions of an industry ready for optimisation.
To date, over two million Australians have changed the way they find, hire and manage trusted tradies to get a job done around their home. This is an exciting period of growth for us as we continue to lead the change in the industry.

Then in November 2007 we moved to our first home in Kippax Street, Surry Hills.
And in October 2013 as our number of team members doubled we moved to 338 Pitt Street, Sydney CBD.
Then on the 4th December 2017, our team literally marched up Pitt street from our old home to our new home, celebrating another big milestone in the hipages story. As we keep growing, we remain determined to pursue our mission of making life easier for homeowners and tradies all across Australia. A very proud and exciting moment for all of us, and an inspirational work space to live our DNA ‘Make it Happen!’.
