A Global Vision
Beginning in Brooklyn

In the heart of Brooklyn, our founder Stephanie noticed a problem while helping a local yoga studio: their online booking software was both clunky and costly.

One day, during a drive around Brooklyn with her co-founder, Stephanie had an idea and casually said, "Why don't we build a tool ourselves?”

And that's how Ruoom came to life.

Now, with a global team of 25+ professionals and headquarters in both Austin, TX and Seoul, Ruoom has transformed Stephanie's vision into a thriving reality. We've extended our reach, now providing services to businesses in the United States and South Korea, all while staying true to our mission of simplifying business operations.

Ruoom is all about innovation, offering user-friendly booking software that's accessible to businesses of all sizes. We're committed to excellence and teamwork, aiming to help businesses simplify their operations and succeed.

With Ruoom, you're not just a client, but a part of our story—a tale about simplifying your life. Join hands with a customer-focused, empowering brand and help us write the next chapter. Together, we'll reshape how businesses manage bookings, one appointment at a time.

The Ruoom Connection

At Ruoom, we’re passionate about creating user-friendly tech tailored to small businesses and enterprises. Our dedication to excellence and teamwork drives us to help businesses streamline their operations and reach their full potential.

But we've realized our responsibility to entrepreneurs goes beyond software. That's why we introduced the Home Ruoom community site. Home Ruoom offers entrepreneurs a supportive space with valuable resources and a community of like-minded individuals. We prioritize inclusivity, reliability, and empowerment, inviting entrepreneurs to be part of our journey.

Our vision for the future is simple: we envision Home Ruoom as a thriving hub where entrepreneurs come together, learn, collaborate, and thrive. As we expand our presence, our commitment remains unwavering in providing accessible, reliable, and empowering resources throughout your growth journey.

By providing cutting-edge tech and an energizing, supportive space, we hope to be the wind beneath your entrepreneurial wings. Welcome to Ruoom and Home Ruoom, where transformation begins with you.

A Note From Stephanie

When my Mom was a kid, she started a comic book library business on her front porch. She couldn't have been older than the 4th grade at the time. I bring this up to say that I'm pretty sure the entrepreneurial spirit is ingrained in my DNA. But for a long time, I never thought about going down that path.

I'm a second-generation Asian American, and I grew up with the expectations of many Asian families (if you know, you know). I got an Electrical Engineering degree, landed a job at the company my Dad dreamed I would work for since I was 10, got a Master's in Engineering, climbed the corporate ladder, and then one day, had a realization that there has to be more to life than chasing titles and marking off accomplishment checkboxes that told the world nothing about my character.

I started my first business in 2017. A small boutique consultancy, which I still run to this day. Then, in late 2018, I made a sketch in Microsoft Paint (yes, you read that correctly), which would become the very rough first ideation of what the Ruoom platform is today.

In 2019, I co-founded Ruoom in my tiny 500-square-foot apartment in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, we’ve filed for a patent, relocated our headquarters to Austin, Texas, grown our team from 2 to over 20, expanded our global presence with an international office in Seoul, South Korea, and transformed that initial Microsoft Paint sketch into a software product that supports customers in two countries.

Major accomplishments? Yes. But honestly, we're just getting started. We're on a path to achieve so much more, and we hold the same belief for every customer we have the privilege to work with. So, if you're a team with big goals like ours, you're in the right place, and we're honored to welcome you to our community.
