About Cleary

Our platform powers a personalized and holistic Employee Experience from pre-boarding to your final day with the company. The founders were inspired by the internal tools they’d built and employees used every day internally at Twitter, where they met after one of their previous startups was acquired in 2016. We’re obsessed with figuring out how organizations can design a world-class Employee Experience and scale their culture through hypergrowth and beyond. We’re seeing great early traction – our customers are some of the most successful companies in Silicon Valley, including DoorDash, Square, Flexport, Scale.ai, LendingHome, and many more!

We’re a remote-first company with a small team of 8 across 4 different time zones and 4 countries.

We bootstrapped the company for the first 18 months and have since raised a seed round of funding from Venture Capital firms and top tier angel investors including

  • Dick Costolo (Former CEO, Twitter)
  • Adam Bain (Former COO, Twitter)
  • George Hu (COO, Twilio)
  • Ryan Petersen (CEO/Founder, Flexport)
  • Emmett Nicholas (CTO/Co-Founder, Airtable)
  • Frederique Dame (Google Ventures)
  • David Schellhase (General Counsel, Slack)
  • Gokul Rajaram (DoorDash, Board @Coinbase/Pinterest)
  • Lee Linden (Quiet Capital, Founder of TapJoy and Karma)
  • Andrew Miklas (Former CTO/Co-Founder, PagerDuty)
  • And many more…

Why work here?

Cleary was founded based on our experience working at Twitter on various tools to help the employee base stay productive, connected, and aligned. We realized how disjointed the Employee Experience has become at many organizations, with the range of tools used by different teams, dispersed workers and offices, flatter orgs, and everything that comes with the evolving workplace. This disconnection has dragged down productivity, engagement, and the overall experience at work. We’re here to change that.

We dogfood our own product and are always looking for new ways to make Cleary a great place to work.

We’re flexible, honest, hardworking, and collaborative. As a team, we bring our diverse backgrounds together to create better individual work experiences. We support and challenge one another to bring out the best in each of us, and have a little fun along the way. We are lifelong learners, and support ongoing training and professional development on a wide variety of topics.
