Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept:

Expensify prides itself in solving a real world problem with a team of top notch engineers. Expense reports have long been a burden on the business world and working at Expensify means helping us automate every step of the process from the moment people incur their business expenses to the moment they get reimbursed with money in the bank (and everything in between!).

Like what you see? 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. List any published apps that you have.
  3. What's your coding history? When did you start, and what have you done between then and now?
  4. What do you want to do with the rest of your life, and how is Expensify a step toward your long-term goals?
