How Expensify Achieves High-Quality Daily Releases


The pace of fast software releases and updates often puts a strain on quality.

For many organizations, it is not easy to release with quality and speed --- one is often sacrificed for the other. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Despite a small staff, Expensify pushes new releases on a daily basis, with confidence that the change will work. On March 16 at 10 a.m PT/ 1 p.m. EST, learn from Expensify’s Director of Engineering, Tim Golen, how the organization bucks conventional trends to deliver value every day. And hear from Shai Simchi, Solution Delivery Manager at Applause, about how our global community of testers removes blockers to help keep Expensify on track.

  • Real processes to ensure digital quality
  • How company culture impacts engineering and QA
