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.
