CLEAR is currently available in 50+ airports, venues and more. Now with Health Pass, CLEAR securely connects a person’s digital identity to multiple layers of COVID-related insights to help reduce public health risk and restore peace of mind.

Everyday I get to work on products that give time back to our customers; we leverage biometrics to let you be you so there’s less time spent in line.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Speaking up is the key to success on our team. There’s no need to break down silos because we don’t build them! Inclusivity and diversity are often HR terms. At CLEAR, we speak up. Everyone is heard. Everyone is included. Every voice matters. Every experience is valued. It is so refreshing to work somewhere that values speaking up!

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.
