Hi,

I’m Rajesh Bhat, CEO and Co-Founder of Roostify. I’d like to welcome you to the Roostify page, and I hope you’ll decide to explore a future with us.

The Roostify journey started when I bought my first home, and discovered that the home-buying process was old-fashioned, inefficient, and placed the consumer at a disadvantage. I founded Roostify to change that. We’ve evolved a lot since then, but the heart of our mission has stayed the same: to make a real difference in the lives of people trying to buy a home, by creating a modern, simpler, fairer home lending experience.

If you are currently working at Roostify or visiting our page today, I hope you see some of what I see every day – passionate problem solvers who thrive in a high-energy environment. We're solving a massive problem that others have been afraid to touch, and are very proud of what we've accomplished. 

It’s an exciting time to be at Roostify. We’ve rolled out at several top-tier national lenders, we’re expanding our platform capabilities to improve more parts of getting a loan, and we’ve just raised a $25M Series B with a round of prestigious investors to help us accelerate our growth and further capitalize on a fantastic market opportunity. We’re looking for creative, passionate people to help us get there.

If you’re excited to help build a better, more empowering experience for people embarking on the largest transactions of their lives, I invite you to apply with Roostify. We look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

Rajesh Bhat

CEO & Co-Founder

    I have been working at Roostify full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You feel like you're really part of something bigger, where everyone is working toward improving dramatically the home-buying process for consumers.

    Even as the company grows, the weekly company meetings, accessibility of people at all levels of the company, and the company's open, candid culture, make this an exceptional place to work.

    People are really motivated to excellence. The best evidence of that is the recent hackathon from which all the proposed projects were put on the roadmap because of the value they bring to customers.

    Cons

    There are so many things that can be done, and not enough resources to do everything

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the culture. It's what truly distinguishes Roostify

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Roostify (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The whole interview process was smooth, quick and pleasant. Initially it was a phone screen with recruiter as well as hiring manager, then it was an onsite interview with multiple people in multiple sessions. The recruiter is very responsive and the whole interview process was finished within less than 10 days. The offer and on-boarding process is fast and very informative. Before even getting into the office, I already started receiving a lot of information regarding my employment, benefit, etc, which was really helpful and streamlined the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview involved multiple individuals whom I'm going to interacted a lot in future work. The questions are a combination of job role specific questions as well as those to help those individuals to understand how I'm going to interact with them moving forward.   Answer Question
