Roost

AirBnB for storage and parking.

Roost allows people to find and pay for storage and parking in major cities. Places where both can be scarce. Other people can earn extra cash from their unused storage areas or parking spaces. If you need space, just check what is available near you.

We took their existing platform, migrated and modernized it to improve user experience. Our user test team ran thousands of scenarios to identify any user interface shortcomings. Congratulations to Roost for earning a place in 500 Startup Accelerator.

Roost was in the middle of developing our V2 product when we encountered trouble with our internal developers. ETEAM jumped right in the existing code base and quickly picked up where my developers left off. Not only was ETEAM extremely reliable, but they ended up reducing my development costs by over 70%! Roost had an exit while eTeam was still working on the platform.
