Things we can’t keep to ourselves because IT’S JUST THAT EXCITING!


no cockroach signI won’t lie: it’s flattering and vindicating for the low-burn, efficient-growth strategies we’ve been championing for years to come into vogue.  For years we’ve watched quietly on the sidelines as low-interest rates and market doldrums have fueled massive investments into “Unicorn” startups, operating unsustainable business models at a massive loss.  And I can’t deny we’ve envied their shocking valuations.  So I’ll admit satisfaction that the mythical creature’s shine is wearing off, and that there’s enough appreciation of our sustainable, profitable models that startups of our class have finally earned a name of our own.

But “cockroach”?  Seriously?! Continue Reading…

Running a startup is full of firsts.  My first hire, my first round of funding, my first enterprise customer.  Well, today I add a new item to that list: My first lawsuit.


It’d be diplomatic to say “Boy, I really hate to do this”, as I’m no more a fan of lawsuits or intellectual property than the next guy — in fact, probably less.  But I won’t say I’m agonizing over the decision because really, I’m not.  There are a lot of really weird parts about being a startup CEO, and this is just the latest.

Now to be clear, I’d prefer not to be in this situation.  I’d prefer to “only” be the fastest growing expense management service in the world, and let the numbers speak for themselves.  But you can’t build a billion dollar business without one of your competitors eventually crossing the line, so I’m not surprised this day has come.  What DOES surprise me is by how far they crossed it.

Jonah and TJ working at Expensify.

Across all teams, we’re building not just a best-in-class product, but also a world-class company.

Part of what makes Expensify such an amazing place to work is that we’ve brought together a group of people that truly believes in the company’s mission and vision. Since 2008, we’ve grown the team from a handful of people to ~100 full time employees while only promoting from within. Every single member of our leadership team has started from the ground level and earned the respect of the organization before being recognized with any formal title; part of our vision is to keep that tradition for as long as we reasonably can.

On top of that, over 75% of our employees have opted to receive some portion of their compensation in stock options. Continue Reading…
