A recruiter reached out to me from Houzz for a swe role. Wanted to understand how the company is doing? Seems like a cross between yelp, Pinterest and thumbtack. Does this mean none of their individual biz lines are successful or is there revenue growth very strong?

      Not easy to exit for both employees and the company.

    The are backed by ICONIQ Capital. ICOINQ is pretty conservative in investing and won't touch companies if they aren't profitable. 6 unicorn IPOs this year already.. Houzz will IPO for several Billion. Anything ICONIQ touches turns to platinum. Get in to Houzz before the next round, if any, jumps the valuations.

      What makes you think Houzz will have a next round? You work at Houzz or Iconiq?

      Thanks for being positive about Houzz but I don't see the reasoning here.

    We (Houzz) are doing very well. We’re focused on home remodeling and home furnishing, both very large vertical markets. (Consumers spend hundreds of billion $s a year on each.) We earn significant revenue from BOTH ecommerce and ads.

    If you know any homeowners (in any of the 16 counties currently served by Houzz) who are considering doing a home renovation or refurnishing their home, ask them what they know about Houzz. You’ll likely find an enthusiastic user.

      What does that mean? Is it good or bad? They seem to have all top investors
