An Insider's view of Roomi

What are some social events your company does?

Roomi treats its employees to monthly social events like Spin Cycle class, Rock Climbing, Shuffleboard, Company Dinners, Arcade night…just to name a few. And if you’re not into that sort of thing, you can join a daily meditation group started by one of our team members. Roomi team members work, play and get grounded together.
