Our Values

A Platform for People

Take it on Together

We're honest and transparent; welcoming and encouraging feedback to help us collaborate across the business as we grow. We value connection and celebrating each other's expertise. We're open about challenging each other as our relationships are built on trust.

Elevate with Excellence

We strive for excellence in everything we do, constantly inspiring each other to do our best. We are detail oriented and use data to drive smart decisions so we can be efficient in everything we do. We implement a proactive not reactive approach to our work.

Find a Way

We're excited by the freedom to carve our own paths, constantly evolving to find new ways to make an impact on our customers and beyond. We're curious about the possibilities and that's what helps us solve problems creatively. We're not afraid to fail, learn fast and try again.

Think Bold

We are always looking for ways to provide better value to our professionals. The most exciting opportunities are discovered when we're thinking about the bigger picture. We're not afraid to make bold moves. We don't do things just to tick boxes. Our focus is on the outcome, rather than the output.

Bark was founded by Kai Feller and Andrew Michael in the UK. It was born from their shared vision of making finding professionals for any job as easy as possible.

We launched a few months later in January. Our first customer needed a personal trainer in Hammersmith and we linked them up within the hour. By May 2016, we had our 100,000th Bark.


By February 2017 we reached the milestone of 100,000 professionals, and in April we launched in the US. Our first American professional to sign up was a carpenter in Iowa!


By December of that same year, we reached our one-millionth Bark - a small business in Wales looking for a web designer. Needless to say, they found who they needed on our platform.


Having been named as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies, we needed the right support to keep up with demand. In 2019 our Customer Experience centre became a 24/7 service to help our professionals go live.


We always intended Bark to be a global business and in 2019, four and a half years after we were founded, Bark launched in Canada, Ireland and South Africa.


The Bark team grows to over 50 people.


Just over a year later, we were ready to take Bark down under. We set up a small office in Melbourne and launched in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.


In August 2020 we smashed another new record and had 1M professionals signed up to Bark. It then came as no surprise when we ranked sixth in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 in September.

We pride ourselves on our diversity, inclusivity and workplace culture. It was fantastic to have this recognised by Best Companies who ranked Bark as the best company to work for in 2021.


Intent on growing the global footprint of the company, we were always on the look-out for the next country launch. In 2021, we took Bark to India and haven’t looked back since.


Yet another milestone was reached in 2021 when we had our fifteen-millionth Bark. We also had over 1.5 million professionals signed up to the platform across nine markets.

Although we were smashing our growth trajectory and achieving great things, we had even bigger plans for the business. For these plans to become a reality, we needed investment and in May 2022 EMK capital, a leading private equity firm, invested in Bark.


Nearly eight years after we started, we were ready to make some waves in Europe in Germany and France. They were our first foreign language sites and required a complete re-code from our engineers!

Our People

At Bark, we hire for skills and shared values and that’s pretty much it.

We’re intent on building a workforce as diverse as our platform and are proud to have a workplace culture that’s genuinely inclusive. To us, representation isn’t just a tick-box exercise. Diversity is one of our strongest assets and the driving force behind our ability to adapt, innovate and deliver exceptional value to our customers.
