CLEAR's mission is to strengthen security and create frictionless experiences for consumers. We believe you are you and by using your biometrics - your fingerprints, eyes, and face - we keep you moving. Imagine a world where you can do virtually everything you need to – breeze through the airport, buy a beer at the game, check-in at the doctor's office, access your office building, and more – without ever pulling out your wallet or phone. Now in 60+ airports and other venues nationwide, you are your ID, credit card, ticket, reservation and more with CLEAR.

We're defining and leading an entirely new industry, obsessing over our customers, and investing in great people to lead the way.

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.

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.
