Edmonton tech company Jobber has raised $60 million US in growth financing to help fund research and future growth, but won’t take much of a break to savour the success.

Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder of Jobber, told CBC’s Edmonton AM this week the company is taking a moment to be happy at the news, but will be getting right back to work.

“This financing is going to allow us to really continue doing more of what we have been doing for the last number of years but at a larger scale and with a bigger ambition to build a global technology company,” Pillar said Thursday.

Jobber provides management software for small home-service businesses like lawn care, HVAC, painting, roofers and residential cleaning.
