Expensify is well-known for its cutting-edge technology and for being a market leader. They wanted to build a team that would support the scrapers (bank website integrations) and parsers (automated parsing for email receipts, airline tickets, etc.) on a daily basis, develop new integrations and ensure the existing ones worked. Expensify turned to Star for a skilled team capable of plugging into their current architecture and helping develop & maintain these key back-end systems.
Star built a cross-functional engineering team specifically for the task and provided the necessary training for the team to be effective. Our work included creating a brand-new platform and approach for screen scraping and ensuring our work fit seamlessly within Expensify’s highly-secured environment. They needed to roll out new features quickly, so we put 14 dedicated software developers on the case, all working alongside Expensify’s internal teams to support back-end development.
