PDX Infrastructure

Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept:

Expensify prides itself in solving a real world problem with a team of motivated, top notch engineers. We are passionate about eliminating our customers’ expense report pain, and are looking for equally passionate people to join our team. Expense reports have long been a burden on the business world and working at Expensify means helping us automate everything from the moment people incur their business expenses to the moment they get reimbursed and have their money in the bank (and everything in between!).

About Infrastructure

Infrastructure Engineering is responsible for overseeing the development, implementation and maintenance of the infrastructure used by our applications. We work closely with the product development team to expand and enhance our deeply integrated service platform. Our goal is to develop and support a platform for consistent deployment, while ensuring operational flexibility.

About You

Whether you’re tuning configs or writing a new automation task, you’re self-driven and collaborative. You’re an autonomous individual who is passionate about building a stable product. You are open to working with our engineering and sales teams to make sure we are growing in the best possible way.  

As an infrastructure engineer, your responsibilities will include:

  • Working with client- and server side frameworks and platforms
  • Implementing systems that monitor networks, server health, and application performance
  • Configuring infrastructure systems to provide load balancing, application firewalls, reverse proxying, and related services. 
  • Setting up and implementing security policies that protect us and our customers
  • Working with new technologies to deliver high availability and data redundancy
  • Designing tools to help our entire engineering organization be as productive as possible

For the best possible fit, we are looking for someone who:

  • Communicates well, both interpersonally and in their code (we <3 COMMENTS!)
  • Knows how to solve problems by automating their solutions
  • Has a strong foundation in security from a software, system and network standpoint
  • Is experienced with Linux system configuration, administration and tuning
  • Has experience with automated configuration management and continuous integration (CI) systems
  • Understands the role and impact that operations can have on the organization as a whole
  • Is passionate about “getting under the hood” of systems and technologies to understand their inner workings, and fix what needs fixing

We’re looking for people who already have a strong background in Linux system administration to fill this role. We use this as the foundation for your launchpad in Expensify, with an expectation that you’re able to carry those skills into domains you have yet to dip your feet into.

Next Steps

Applying is easy, but it takes time. See, while we know you're awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of literally hundreds of other applications we get from everyone else. So this is where we're going to ask our first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so we don't accidentally overlook you? There are probably many ways to do that, but the easiest way is to help us out by answering the following questions:

  1. What's the URL of your website? If you don't have one, why not?
  2. What's your admin/coding history? When did you start, and what have you done between then and now?
  3. What do you want to do with the rest of your life, and how is Expensify a step toward your long-term goals?
  4. How did you hear about us? A job posting? Chalk on a sidewalk? From a friend? Let us know where you saw this opening.

Resume not your thing? That’s great, we don’t really read them anyways! Forward your responses to the questions to jobs@expensify.com. We're excited to hear from you!
