The team talks with Expensify CEO David Barrett about how computer graphics and video games inspired his career, how Expensify built their stack, and why this CEO still takes his turn on PagerDuty.

Episode notes:

Expensify is an expense management solution that integrates with your travel, ERP, and finance/accounting software. Check out their full list of integrations.

Expensify engineers rely on Stack Overflow for Teams to make knowledge accessible and shareable, rather than wading through swathes of documentation. Read the case study.

Flat organizations like Expensify have minimal or no middle management, meaning there’s no management layer between staff and executives. A similar model for decentralized management is Holacracy.
