Hello Alfred is on a mission to make life easier through the magic of personalized help in your home. Bringing software and smart service past your door, we take on the 30 hours of housework an average household does each week, so you can focus on what you do best: rock your career, play with your kids, pick up a new hobby, but always Come Home Happy. We are dedicated to building a solution that learns from our customers’ preferences and desires to delight them, not just with technology, but through a unique, last-mile human experience. The first service layer of its kind, we make the luxury of personal help accessible through optimized logistics across vendors and clients. We were the winner of TechCrunch Disrupt 2014 and a recognized thought leader in the service economy with accolades from the FT for Boldness in Business, Goldman Sachs, the Department of Labor & the White House.
