Prompt: Roomie Match

Used by: WeWork

A few trends of note: 54% of the world’s population live in urban communities, the average marriage age for men is 29 (up from 26 two decades ago) and for women is 27 (up from 23 in the same time period). Given these trends, city dwellers tend to spend most of their twenties living with roommates. Finding and keeping a good roommate, however, gets harder as more and more people live in cities.

Design a mobile product experience that appeals to millennials and that makes it safe to find the ideal roommate in New York City. Design the experience from the perspective of a person who is looking for a roommate, as well as the one who is looking for the apartment. Once the ideal roommate is found, what else can this product do to improve the roommate experience?

We are looking for you to identify and solve the problems in the finding and keeping a good roommate journey.

Constraint: Stick to the existing mobile capabilities of iOS and Android.
