About Us

We’re building a team of top talent to redesign business spending.

Who We Are

We’re customer-obsessed

The sole reason for our existence is to delight our customers, and we are constantly seeking to better serve and go the extra mile. We always start with the customer experience and work backwards to create the best possible experience.

We’re owners, not renters

We act like shareholders of a small business, not like employees of a large corporation. We take ownership and accountability over everything we do, even if it doesn’t perfectly fit in our day-to-day job description.

We’re biased towards urgency and action

We wake up every day eager to move quickly and execute swiftly. We approach projects and our workday with ferocity and intensity, knowing that doing so over a sustained period of time will mean that we ship much faster and achieve more.

We are resilient and never give up

What we are doing – as a company and team – is exceptionally difficult. We will encounter obstacles. We will experience failures. Not everything will go as planned. We will face these challenges head on and never back down. We believe that where there is a will, there is a way.

We radically seek the truth

We act with courage and aggressively seek the truth in an effort to achieve our mission. We say what is on our minds and what we believe is best for the company and our mission, even if it is uncomfortable. We challenge directly while caring personally.

We make big, bold bets

We are doing something challenging and uncertain yet worthwhile in order to make a major impact for our customers and the industry. We are willing to take big risks in the pursuit of building great products for our customers. Doing so is worth it, even if we fail.

We’re constantly learning and growing

As a company and team, we must constantly be learning and growing. What we did last year will not necessarily set us up for success next year. The world is competitive and ever-evolving, especially in a startup. We all accept that at any moment we are the latest version of ourselves – we can (and should) always strive to grow and be better.

We’re simplifying spending so companies and teams can focus on growing their business.

Business spending
made simple.

Building a business is hard enough. We’re pairing innovative financial solutions with intuitive software to empower companies and teams. We started by eliminating the time-consuming and mindless tasks associated with corporate spending and we’re not stopping until all business spending is as it should be—simple.

Ready. Set. Grow.

We know that with the right tools, companies and teams can focus on growing their business, not tracking expense reports, chasing receipts, or waiting for personal reimbursements.

Built with the best.

We’ve devoted thousands of hours—working directly with finance leaders, managers, and employees—to build the best spending experience. Our team and investors bring experience from leading software companies including Uber, Shopify, Robinhood, and Clearco.
