room.me Launches Online Roommate Finder and iOS App in California

Algorithm Connects People Based on Personality to Simplify Finding
the Ideal Roommate

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–room.me,
the game-changing online roommate finder, today announced it is now
available across California online and via its newly launched iOS+app&index=2&md5=c39d8e1fadeec84b2755535c54b01ba6″ rel=”nofollow”>iOS
app. By answering questions about interests, opinions, lifestyle and
housing needs, room.me’s smart algorithm connects potential roommates
based on personality matching. room.me is a more efficient way to find a
roommate, and is the only roommate finder that uses a unique matching
algorithm to bring like-minded people together.


“The cost of living across California is skyrocketing and students,
young professionals and adults are relying more than ever on shared
living situations to save on expenses,” said Max Kersting, chief
executive officer and cofounder for room.me. “At the same time, the way
people find roommates today is completely inefficient, frustrating and
archaic. We have taken a clue from successful dating apps and designed
room.me with a focus on simplicity and smart matching – ultimately we
want to help create enjoyable living experiences.”

To get started, users create a profile on room.me and fill out a
questionnaire about their lifestyle and living preferences. The user is
then asked to rank the importance of each question and select “Deal
Breakers” to indicate anything that is unacceptable to him/her. For
example, the answer to “Do you have a cat?” could be a Deal Breaker for
a person with an allergy. This action eliminates any “roomie wannabes”
who have chosen this answer.

“What may be a deal breaker for one person could be exactly what another
person is looking for in a roommate,” said Julia Katharina Schmitt,
chief marketing officer for room.me. “We all have our quirks, unique
habits and preferences – those are the qualities that we celebrate at
room.me. We believe that there is a perfect roommate for everyone and
our goal is to help those people find each other.”

room.me is available for free throughout California. Sign up at www.room.me.
