Travel the World With Us!

With Expensify, you never need to put off your travel dreams again! The team goes on a month-long offshore to a new country every year, and you get to help us choose where to go next. Argentina? Sri Lanka? Anything is possible as long as there's wifi!

How does this even work?

Expensify is an internet-based company so, luckily, we can work from anywhere in the world with Internet access. On the offshore, we scour the city for the best cafes, bars, and public spaces that offer the most reliable internet. Sometimes, we just straight up work from one of the cool Airbnbs we’re staying at. Either way, we get shit done.

In fact, the offshore is one of our most productive times of the year. People are typically skeptical when we say this, but when you’re in a different country sharing an Airbnb with your coworkers and free from the distractions that normally vye for your time at home, you get into a different headspace. Interesting conversations can happen during meals or even late at night, which leads to some awesome cross-team collaboration that doesn’t happen as organically at home.

Work and Play
When we aren’t working, we are on vacation since WE ARE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.

Beach Breaks Aplenty
Busy morning? Why not take a quick run down the beach for a dip in the ocean on your lunch break?

Motos anyone?
Time to relocate? Hop on a moto for an 8 hour ride along the Vietnam coast. How cool is that?

Living the (local) life

That’s not to say the offshore is all work and no fun. We’re traveling around a new country for crap’s sake! Not only do we live daily life in a completely new country (which is fun and challenging in its own way) but we also take the time to relax on the beach and see the sites. Discover a local heritage site, eat your way through the local cuisine, or attend a sports match; whatever you want to do, just do it! Chances are, more than one person will want to join you on that adventure.

Bring a loved one, we don't mind!

The offshore is totally optional; we know that it’s hard to be away from families and significant others for too long. Typically, people with families will do an abbreviated version of the offshore where they skip the first week, join the rest of the team during the second week, then spend the last two weeks with their significant other. That being said, the offshore is pretty family friendly and we love it when significant others join us — they’re pretty much extensions of the Expensify family!

 

So where to next?

How do we choose where to go next? It’s a democratic process and the only criteria is that there has to be an internet connection, places to eat, and a beach. Join the team and have your say — where do you want to go next?

Our Technology

Making an expense report not suck is surprisingly difficult.  It’s not enough to just have a couple servers and a snazzy design – it actually needs to do some pretty amazing things quickly, reliably, and on a global scale. We do the hard work so customers won’t need to.
