About Us

 

Rooof sells software to property management companies in the USA on monthly recurring subscriptions.  On-site users at each property use our software to automatically put classified advertisements on the internet using our browser extension (and pending Electron implementation) that mimics human-like browser-interactions. Instead of making classified ads manually, our software does all the work.  Our software is used in over 2,000 apartment buildings by over 5,000 users.

Rooof was founded in 2012 to improve how the rental-housing industry advertises their vacancies. People love our software because it writes great performing ads and because we have automated a task that they despise. We are preparing to build new software for our existing customers to meet other needs, unrelated to classified ad automation.

We are a team of 24 with our head offices in Victoria, BC.  21 of us are located in Victoria, BC, with sales in Phoenix and Cape Coral and one off-site software engineer.  Read more about us below!

JOnas Ferencz

Jonas is our co-op student! He writes and executes tests for Rooof so that we find any bugs before our clients do! When he’s feeling a little dangerous, he likes to mountain bike and ski, but otherwise, you can find him reading a history book, learning something new, or drinking coffee.

Rooofus

Chloe

Chloe is Rooofus' best friend and is a hard-working member of the Rooof team. When she comes to work, she ensures that she is always at the top of her game by taking multiple naps throughout the day. When she's not napping, you can usually find her playing with one of her many toys!
