About Us

The Yoop

Welcome to Expensify North!

You may have noticed that a good portion of our employees live and work in Michigan’s upper peninsula (aka the UP, aka the Yoop). Actually, about half of the Expensify family is based in the UP. We have a sweet team of customer support, software development, and data entry workers there helping us bring Expense Reports that Don’t Suck to the rest of the world.


How it all began

It started as an experiment with family and friends. An employee from the Upper Peninsula in Michigan saw an opportunity to brings jobs back to the community he grew up in, which was still recovering from the 2008 economic recession. He invited a few friends and family members to try and see if working remotely for a San Francisco-based startup would be a viable model for the startup’s growth.


Scaling the team

Within months, the team of one grew to three, then ten, and it still continues to grow today. Since 2013, we’ve created more than fifty jobs and counting in the surrounding area, which includes Ironwood, Wakefield, Bessemer, Hurley, WI, and the smaller towns in between. Initially focused on data entry, the positions have since diversified to include management, support, and junior developer roles.

Community support and impact

Along the way, we’ve received insurmountable support and enthusiasm from Gogebic Community College, Jim Lorensen, President of GCC, and Jim Halverson, Lead of the Computer Information Technology Program. At least half of our Michigan team has graduated from or taken classes at GCC, and some of our current colleagues were even directly referred to us from GCC professors. In return, we’re proud to support the college and community further by offering Gogebic’s first computer science scholarship to first year students. Needless to say, we love the GCC community!
