An Insider's view of Roofr

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We are a 100% remote company, but when people do come to the office it's fun and collaborative! The office is beautiful, there is a lots of room and space for everyone. When people are here, helping each other and working side by side, it's my favorite thing!

Sales Lead

What are some social events your company does?

Roofr puts on several in-person and virtual events every year so our remote team can get to know one another. We have in-person retreats in lake country in Ontario, holiday parties in Toronto, and virtual events like trivia and scavenger hunts. Having the opportunity to get to know one another beyond the workday is so important for our culture.
