How a well-funded enterprise scaled Taiwan office by 10X in less than 10 months


Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, providing an all-in-one software solution for industry professionals and tools for homeowners to update their homes from start to finish. In 2020, the company launched Houzz Pro business management and marketing software that helps home professionals to win projects, collaborate with clients and teams, and run their business efficiently and profitably.

Houzz is a unicorn technology company based in Silicon Valley.

To scale Taiwan as part of Houzz’s global engineering development team to meet our ever-growing business needs, while competing with giant corporations during a tech talent shortage. Houzz also needed a more efficient way to set-up and support Taiwan-based employees with company-provided hardware and software.


Houzz expanded their candidate pool by accepting applications from Worca’s curated database of 25,000+ English-proficient university graduates representing the top 5% of global talent. That decision empowered Houzz to:

  • Identify and attract the best possible candidates
  • Review pre-screened resumes expertly match job criteria
  • Only interview highly-qualified candidates
  • Hire with confidence supported by Worca’s 90-day guarantee
  • Launch products on time and within salary budgets

Additionally, Houzz implemented Worca’s IT equipment management program to efficiently and cost-effectively handle:

  • Purchases and leases
  • Shipping logistics, including U.S. and destination customs regulations
  • Set-up, configuration, and maintenance
  • Offboarding and retrieval

Houzz has seen very high employee retention rates of their Taiwan office.

Houzz hiring managers received an average of five qualified resumes weekly. Worca’s 10:1 ratio of candidates-to-accepted offers delivered Houzz’s goal to increase hiring efficiency, and they were able to onboard strong engineers within a short period. Switching to Worca’s in-house IT equipment management, Houzz avoids losing hours sorting out logistic challenges and gains time for mission-critical tasks.
