Meet Emily Weiner, Roomi’s Operations Manager

Every month, we place the spotlight on a member of Team Roomi. Why? Because they’re the brains behind our good work, the fun-loving colleagues we see everyday, and the people who make co-living an adventure worth taking.

We’ve got an amazing team—and we’re not afraid to brag!

Meet Emily Weiner, Roomi’s Operations Manager


Hi Emily, what do you do for Roomi, and how long have you been here?

I’m the Operations Manager at Roomi. I’ve been here for a year and a half, and some people here like to call me Emmers!

Where were you born and raised, Emmers?

Minneapolis, Minnesota—a.k.a the best place in the world.

How did you end up in New York City?

I came to NYC on a clear mission: to work for startups. They’re challenging, fun, and rewarding, so what’s not to love? I’ve been working for startups ever since.

How’d you end up at Roomi?

I found Roomi via AngelList, a website where job-seekers and potential investors can connect with startups.

What do you do for fun?

You can find me at 305 Fitness’ hip-hop dancing classes (I’ve been dancing for a good three years!), or relaxing at home with an Arabic language book. I speak Hebrew already, but I’d love to add more languages to my list.

Give us your best co-living story.

My best co-living story led to one of my best friends. I roomed with a girl a few years ago, and we became very close. She and I live in different states now, but we talk every Sunday. I know from experience how important it is to find a roommate who gets you—which is why I love being a part of Team Roomi!
