About Humming Homes & Our Team
We are tackling the $500B+ home services industry by building a technology-driven home maintenance solution for homeowners. Our mission is to improve the burdensome process of owning and maintaining a home with our tech-powered home operations service.

Our team has successfully combined operations and technology at high-growth companies including Amazon, American Express, Cerebral, Fundera (Nerdwallet), Instacart, Katerra, Modern Fertility and many others. We are backed by leading investors including Greycroft, AlleyCorp, Harlem Capital, Thrive Capital, Sound Ventures, among other great capital partners.
