Yes, it’s been one year already! And what a great year it has been. When we launched the site, our goal was to remove money as a common cause for frustration between friends. It seems like it has been working. In the past year we have seen a tremendous response from thousands of people all over the world, as well as glowing reviews from the press. People used BillMonk to track bills we foresaw like rent, dinner, and groceries; and some which we didn’t like business expenses, and car loans.
The most delightful thing about running BillMonk has been all the love we’ve received from our users, from amazingly detailed feedback to help make the site better, to language translations (BillMonk speaks 7 languages today, with many more on the way), to helping spread the word. Thank you all!
This year promises to be even better than the last. We have lots of exciting features in the pipeline and can’t wait to roll them out. The good news is that we will have the help to do it even faster. BillMonk has been hiring, and we are delighted to annouce the addition of Eric Butler, ace hacker, to the team. He is the first of several team members we hope to add, and is already working to bring you some goodies.
On a final note, we just moved into our new office on beautiful Lake Union! We’ll post some pictures shortly so you can check out the new digs.
