Who We Are

Our Technology

Top-Shelf Tools

It’s not enough to just have a couple servers and a snazzy design -- it actually needs to do some pretty amazing things, quickly and reliably, on a global scale. We do the hard work so customers won’t need to. All Mac laptops, all Linux servers (Salt managed). jQuery, React, PHP 7.0+, HTML5, single-page design, Github-based deployment process, Logstash, blah blah. It’s hard to get excited about off-the-shelf tools, but when we use them, we pour the good stuff.


Yet Another Phone Library (YAPL)

Go native when you want, stay portable for the rest. YAPL is our own mobile framework, written in Java and Swift, that wraps a JavaScript engine for cross-platform business logic with native UI controls for real-time performance. It works on iPhone, iPad, and Android.


We created the first ever receipt-capture technology with SmartScan to kickstart a fully automated receipt tracking and expense management process.


We're using gamification and artificial intelligence to make managing expenses smoother. Much of this is done through Concierge, a virtual assistant that helps you set up your Expensify account, guides you through essential features, answers any questions along the way, and more.

Credit Card Import

Whether you’re tracking card expenses for tax purposes or managing a full-fledged corporate card program, we’ve got you covered. We import billions of dollars of transactions from hundreds of banks around the world.


Harpoon is our in-house messaging framework that allows for massively customizable, laser-focused communications to individuals and groups. If you like the power of Eloqua or Marketo, you’re going to love what we can do.

Integrated Travel

Email your travel receipts to us and our parsers will extract even more data to produce summarized views, travel reminders, real time flight alerts, and more. Our Trips feature tells us where you’re going before you get there, part of our long term vision for the company also known as ambient computing.

Redundant Redundancy

We use AWS for some things, but the real magic happens on our own servers. Every server has redundant NICs and PDUs. Every datacenter has redundant firewalls, switches, databases, power, and internet. We have three datacenters, any of which can die in a fire without service interruption, thanks to our own real time WAN replication technology.


Built in-house, Bedrock is a networking and distributed transaction layer built atop SQLite. We designed Bedrock as a simple, modular, WAN-replicated data foundation for global-scale applications so that we (and thousands of others) can create faster, simpler, more reliable processing transactions.
