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 the office - you are empowered to put your ideas on the table and take ownership of the work you are doing. We also have a chef that makes breakfast 3x/week which is not a bad way to kick off the day!

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We constantly fight tech debt and have the buy-in from management and business to spend 25% of effort each sprint addressing tech debt. We call it the sustainability budget. This ensures the code is well designed, maintained and fun to work with. You'll do the best work of your career.

Dee

Senior Director, Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining CLEAR in 2014, I have had several opportunities to take on new and expanded responsibilities, often because I spotted opportunity and raised my hand to take it on as the company’s needs have evolved along with its growth.
