Travis Kniffen, senior manager of pre sales solution consulting for Roostify, began his career in the mortgage industry at American Capital Corp., an independent mortgage bank in El Segundo, California.

Kniffen spent several years as a loan officer at ACC while helping a college friend run a company that provided consumer-direct lenders a real estate referral network, gaining hands-on mortgage experience. During his time at ACC, Kniffen was introduced to Rajesh Bhat, CEO and cofounder of Roostify.

Kniffen was one of the first users of the early Roostify platform while he was still a loan officer at ACC, and began contributing part-time to the young startup’s development.

After Roostify closed its Series A funding in 2015, Travis transitioned to a full-time role at the company. At various times, sometimes simultaneously, Kniffen led or supported functions including product development, client success, marketing and sales enablement. Kniffen also represents Roostify through conferences and shepherding vital initiatives to completion.
