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 twelve with head offices in Victoria, BC. Eight of us are located in Victoria, BC, with sales in Phoenix and two off-site software engineers. Read more about us on our Team web page.
Our core corporate value is Quality of Life for Everyone; Customers, Staff, & Shareholders. If the company takes care of the employees, then the employees will take care of the customers. Happy customers yield prosperous companies and then the cycle repeats.
Who you’d be working with
Allen and Hanna are our sales people, and they’re flying all over the place to spread awareness of how awesome Rooof is. We need to keep them supplied with up-to-date marketing materials, so that they can keep our phones ringing off the hook.
Cassandra and Julianna do customer training and support, respectively, as well as sharing various aspects of operations. They currently manage a ton of customer facing resources including advertising designs, email templates, user manuals, and much, much more.
Lastly, we’ve got a bunch of software engineers kicking around the office to build, maintain, and grow the widgets that we sell. Fortunately for you they aren’t the most artistically inclined, and need help designing interfaces that are aesthetically pleasing and easy to use.
How you’ll work at Rooof
We all start work at 8am (or earlier if you prefer) Monday-Friday and we work 37.5 hours/week. This job reports to work in Victoria, BC in our head office. We love teamwork and we want to hang out with you!
We take turns watching for explosions on weekends, but we’re lucky that we’ve never had office hours on weekends and just about every fire can be put out on Monday.
You can pretty much take vacation any time that you want, as long as we have someone to cover for you. If you need an extended vacation to cross something off your bucket list, then we can probably accommodate a leave of absence with some advanced notice.
Learning and self-improvement is a company-wide priority. We want to keep our spot as the best software company in our category, and that means that we each need to invest in ourselves. If you need some money to enroll in a course or buy some smart books, then just let us know!
There is no travel required for this job, but we like everyone to keep their passport current in case something interesting pops up in the USA. It doesn’t happen often, but we like people who are willing to travel as a team if needed.
Everyone here has mastered the art of adult-ing, so you don’t need to punch a clock, keep track of your hours, or ask a manager if you can leave early for a dentist appointment. We pay you to accept a responsibility and then deliver on it, we don’t pay for attendance like your first job in high-school.
We’ve got a shiny new office in Market Square with cliché exposed brick walls. We sit in comfy Hermann Miller chairs and we work on new computers. We generally suck at making coffee, so we leave that up to the hipster coffee shop below us.
