(Perfect for new college grads or people who are bored with school and want to get started in the real world!)

Hello, my name is David Barrett and I'm the CEO of Expensify. We do "expense reports that don't suck!" (Google "expensify" to read more.) We're getting crushed under an ever-growing pile of super awesome work, and I need one bright soul to help us dig our way out. I can guarantee you fun, an amazing opportunity to learn, and the siren's call of distant riches. But only if you are all of the following:

And there are a bunch more, but odds are if you got this far, nothing I can do would stop you from applying. That's a problem because while I know you are awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I'm going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don't accidentally overlook you?

There are probably many ways to do that. But the easiest way is to help me out by answering the following questions:

Applying is easy, but takes time. See, because while I know you are awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I'm going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don't accidentally overlook you? There are probably many ways to do that. But the easiest way is to help me out by answering the following questions:
What's the URL of your website? If you don't have one, why not?
What's your coding history? When did you start, and what have you done between then and now?
What do you want to do with the rest of your life, and how is Expensify a step toward your long-term goals?
Please forward this application to three people you think we should hire, cc'ing dbarrett@expensify.com. (Don't worry, we're eager to hire you and them. Indeed, good people have good friends: solid referrals here increase the odds we'll hire you.)

That's it. Email your answers to jobs@expensify.com. If you make an honest attempt to answer all the questions, I'll make an honest attempt to reply in a timely fashion. I can't wait to hear from you soon!

I'm genuinely excited to hear from you. I know there's someone out there who will be a perfect fit for our team. I really hope it's you, and I appreciate your help in patience while we figure that out together. Thanks!
