Roadmunk is a high growth start-up in a fast moving and highly competitive market. What sets us apart is our deep understanding of our users psychology and our ability to produce simple solutions to complex problems.
Roadmunk was inspired by a problem our founders experienced personally : there was no simple way for product managers to build and share roadmaps.
So, we built an app to help companies create roadmaps of all shapes, sizes and types. Our goal is to make strategic roadmapping quick, effective and collaborative.
The most forward-thinking product teams (we’re talking in the thousands here) from top companies like Amazon, Disney and eBay are using Roadmunk to align all of their stakeholders and execs using beautiful, crystal-clear roadmaps.
From day one, we’ve built our app, business and culture around our people-first values. These values are the driving force behind everything we do :
Start with empathy
Driven to succeed
Trust through transparency
Build with balance
