An Insider's view of CLEAR

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of my favorite things about CLEAR is how passionate and excited everyone here is about what we are building. You can really feel that in every conversation - you are empowered to put your ideas on the table and take ownership of the work you are doing. In a hybrid model it's even more important to share those values with other team members.


Senior Technical Recruiter

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, I was working with our training team to create a leadership development program for our operations organization. We’re developing all of the courses in-house and it’s given me exposure to virtually every single team in the company. I’ve used these lessons to amp up my communication strategy for other projects.


Senior Director, Member Experience

What are some things you learned at the company?

In previous roles, I hadn’t had quite as much autonomy as I do at CLEAR. When starting here I didn’t realize I was empowered to make high-level suggestions, do proof of concepts, and present possible technology changes to the organization. It was great to get a nudge from my team and manager to be more open about my ideas to them and other teams.

How does the company support your career growth?

CLEAR is in an exciting transition from a small company to a large company with more focus on process and scalability. These are good problems to have and they leave so much room for employees to step up and grow into a desired role. It’s great to have an idea and be given the opportunity and support to lead something from a simple idea to a POC.
