About Expensify

Expensify is a payments superapp that helps individuals and businesses around the world simplify the way they manage money.

Job Description

Joining our accounting team means you’ll be working on a diverse range of projects with the flexibility to design your own path, take ownership, and make a big impact. As we revolutionize the way people manage their pre-accounting, being part of the Expensify team means helping create efficient and useful accounting processes for a newly public company (check out our epic IPO party)

Even though we work hard at Expensify, we make sure our employees are happy. Our most talked about perk is our Offshore where we spend three weeks abroad working from a remote location as a team. Next year we’re going to South Korea and Iceland, do you want to join?

About Us

Expensify is a flat organization and we follow two basic rules: Get shit done and Don’t ruin it for everyone else. Everyone is trusted to get their work done, with the knowledge that these two rules contain both freedom and responsibility. With freedom comes great responsibility. Our lean and ambitious accounting team does it all. Day-to-day responsibilities are shared by all of us. More complex or judgmental technical accounting matters are shared by the active CPAs. Done with your tasks? You are empowered to devote your free time towards whatever project you believe is most valuable.

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 to help us out is by answering the following questions:

  1. Do you have an active CPA license? 

  2. What's your public accounting history? Highlight your public accounting and/or public company experience. 

  3. What do you want to do with the rest of your life, and how is Expensify a step toward your long-term goals? (We’re serious, we want to know! Share what you’re comfortable sharing, but we are a group of ambitious individuals building a community of people who want to achieve success in every aspect of our lives, and we encourage employees to figure out how they can use Expensify to realize their personal goals with the support of the company around them.)

  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.
