Data Product Manager

If you think like a product owner, look at the world through the lenses of data and enjoy working closely with both engineers and executives, this is the job for you. At Clara, in an effort to modernize the massively antiquated and frustratingly inefficient mortgage process, we’re re-imagining a $10 trillion industry. Our mission is to completely re-manufacture the lending experience to serve our customers: make it empathetic, transparent, reliable and data-driven.

The customer is at the center of what we do, and in this role you’ll establish the business intelligence function that helps us understand the people we serve. You’ll build out the Clara data strategy, plan a data product roadmap, and select and implement systems and tools. You’ll work as part of a smart, collaborative, highly-driven team, and will play a strategic role in shaping the testing, design and prioritization decisions for our core product.

Clara is a modern, proven, technology-enabled lender backed by top venture capital firms, Redpoint Ventures and Venrock Capital. Based in downtown San Francisco, we’re a diverse team of professionals with backgrounds that bring together the best of Silicon Valley tech, financial services, the mortgage industry and the federal government – a rare combination that uniquely positions us to solve the biggest problem in consumer finance. We are driven by our mission to improve people’s lives and ultimately transform the way lending works, and believe that the only way to do it is to foster a culture of creativity, collaboration, community and openness.
