Roomi is a New York-based shared housing marketplace that helps people find the perfect roommate. It enables registered users to search for the right roommate based on lifestyle and personal interests, connect through the in-app chat, apply for a room, and pay rent - all within one web/mobile application.
The company engaged iTechArt as a well-versed technology partner to speed up the development of iOS and Android applications, which are Roomi's core products.
As iTechArt proved to be a reliable custom software development company with an established engineering pipeline and solid development expertise, the Client re-teamed with us for web development. In the new project, iTechArt was to take up the challenges of streamlining the payment processes and introducing a series of enhancements to the search functionality.
In the course of the project, we covered all platform needs and all steps of app development.
Applying our solid experience of mobile engineering, a fully-dedicated team designed a popular mobile solution that is the simplest and safest choice for the housing search.
Throughout the web development stage, the iTechArt team was involved in the following tasks:
- Automating the payout operations
- Implementing Plaid integration
- Setting up payment methods for Identity Verification with Evident ID using Stripe
- Migrating old AngularJS components to React
- Extending CMS for users while implementing new features
- Improve queries performance to MongoDB with ElasticSearch
The Client highly appreciated iTechArt’s contribution to the product. Our dedicated team continues to perfect the solution resulting in an ever-increasing number of happy users.
