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

room.me, the game-changing online roommate finder, today announced it is now available across California online and via its newly launched 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.
