One of the most exciting challenges about working for Chrome River is the need to accommodate all of the new team members that we bring on to support our constant growth. Anyone who’s worked for a fast growth tech company has probably experienced the same thing – wedging desks and chairs into meeting rooms, running out of meeting space, and that general feeling of being about to burst out of the space.
With this in mind, we’re very excited to have recently completed a major overhaul of our headquarters, located in the SAG-AFTRA Building on LA’s Miracle Mile. We acquired and completely fitted out an additional 15,000 square feet of space, as well as gutting and refitting the original office.
While getting more space was obviously critical to accommodate our growth, we also wanted to make sure that we provided an environment that people will enjoy coming to work in. As you can see from the pictures below, our offices are both state-of-the-art in the facilities that they offer (such as motorised desks that can be raised or lowered so people can sit or stand), as well as looking extremely cool - our own phone booths, unique furniture such as swings and even decorations made out of an old DC-9 airliner. Of course we also have a large kitchen stocked full of free drinks and snacks.
In addition to work, we found space for some fun. There’s a foosball table and a tennis table (where our team members’ competitive spirit really comes out), and we also have office events such as Waffle Wednesday and Friday afternoon gourmet tasting sessions.
Of course one of the biggest benefits this new office space is that we now have plenty of space to grow, which is good because we have plenty of new job listings. Take a look at our open positions and if there’s something that you think would be a good fit for your skills, drop us a line.

Our choice of Chrome River EXPENSE was made in part due to the very user-friendly interface, easy configurability, and the clear commitment to impactful customer service – all aspects in which Chrome River was the clear winner. While Chrome River is not as large as some of the other vendors we considered, we found that to be a benefit and our due diligence showed that it could support us as well as any large players in the space, along with a personalized level of customer care.
We are excited to be able to enforce much more stringent compliance to our expense guidelines and significantly enhance our expense reporting and analytics. By automating these processes, we will be able to free up AP time formerly spent on manual administrative tasks, and enhance the role by being much more strategic.
