Recruiting Lead

Clara is a modern, technology-enabled mortgage lending platform.  Based in Downtown San Francisco, Clara is a venture capital backed company that has drawn top talent from Silicon Valley, financial services, federal government and the mortgage industry.

At the beginning of 2015, Clara (then Expedite) was 7 people around a table. Two years later we’re tenfold the size because we prioritized building our technology, culture, and most importantly -- our team. The past two years were just the beginning. We plan to build out product, engineering, sales, marketing, mortgage operations, and business operations functions full of diverse and talented people who will accelerate our borrower experience, technology, and company culture. To help achieve this, we are looking to hire a seasoned Recruiting Lead who is passionate about building a team from 70 to 100 to 250 and beyond.

We’re changing an industry. This requires the right people. Help us find them.
