Our Story

It all started in 2004 when our co-founders Mark Mahoney and Mike Carper put their heads together based on their combined interests in gymnastics and software development. Their goal was to help businesses that offered classes for tuition find a faster, simpler, and more convenient way to operate. Their solution was online class management software.

Mark and Mike created a company based on the values of integrity, reliability, efficiency and function, with a company culture that revolves around working hard while having fun and delivering excellence. Making sure that everyone is happy and has the right tools to do their jobs translates into team members who do whatever it takes for Jackrabbit’s customers.

Today, we have 40+ employees dedicated to serving over 3,500 customers in 50 states and 20 countries.


Why we do what we do

We are passionate about helping class-based businesses who want to boost their performance in an ever-changing, competitive marketplace. It matters because when we work together, our shared success helps kids shape their future and supports lifelong learning for everyone. Oh, and where else can you go to work and get to see everyone in bunny ears?
