What our staff says about The Room

The Room is unlike any organization I’ve worked at before. It’s not only fast-paced, but it’s vibrant and fun! Being a young organization, there are many exciting problems to solve and the autonomy to take the challenges on head first. I can say first-hand that The Room puts their members first, always prioritizing testing and ‘doing things that don’t scale’ to provide the best possible experiences for both its members and its staff.

Our Founder

I believe that those of us who are privileged enough to be educated, healthy, and part of powerful networks should not be doing easy things. The only way to justify our privilege is to do the hard things that society demands of us — to solve tough problems and create opportunities for others. I launched The Room to bring the most ambitious ‘doers’ together to do these hard things that will change the world. I welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community as we make history together.
