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…

When I moved to San Francisco in 2011 for Expensify, I was moving across the country to a city where I knew a whopping two people amongst a city of 825,000. Those two really adopted me at first and helped introduce me to a number of great people. However, being passionate about what I was doing had me working really late hours and so our schedules just never lined up.  Continue Reading…

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Expense reports suck, and receipts are to blame. Expensify claims to offer “expense reports that don’t suck!” and they can’t be too bad — 100,000 companies now use Expensify, who upload over 10,000 receipts and submit over $2M in expense reports every day. But a challenge this great requires allies, so Expensify created the ScanAnywhere Alliance: a fearless crew fighting the toxic tide of crumpled, BPA-laced receipts lurking in pockets everywhere.

  • Dacuda, inventor of the “LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner” (in partnership with LG Electronics, and available at Fry’s and NewEgg): the first mouse that doubles as a realtime scanner such that you can capture receipts of all sizes (including long, long receipts) and use them directly inside Expensify.
  • Genius Scan, an incredibly popular app that turns your iPhone into a pocket scanner by automatically finding the edges of the receipt, neatly cropping out the background, white balancing the remainder, and making it look like you used a flatbed scanner.
  • Lemon, a beautiful new mobile money management tool, which provides a fresh perspective on your spending by scanning the purchase details from paper and email receipts, and then neatly categorizing them for your review and analysis — on the web and on your phone.
  • OneReceipt puts all your purchases in one place, automatically aggregating purchase information from both online and print receipts. The website, and app coming soon, gives users a full look at their spending, with return alerts, shipping information and organizing tools to save you time and money.

But this is only the beginning. Even as we go into battle a single, unified force, we are in secret negotiations with ever more partners to swell our ranks.

Together we stand, and together, we will prevail.
