Software Engineer, Front End

Are you the kind of engineer who questions the status quo? At Clara, our Front End Engineers do more than take tickets and hack quick fixes. Here you have to think critically about UX challenges and bring your personal voice to partner with Product and Design teams. You’ll employ functional programming techniques with React, Redux and RXJS to bring intuition, usability, and modern technology to an underserved industry. We believe that empowerment and context are the secret sauce to good engineering, and that you should have the flexibility to build and the space to experiment and learn.

Clara is a modern, technology-enabled lender backed by top venture capital firms based in downtown San Francisco. Our team brings together the best of Silicon Valley tech, financial services, the mortgage industry and the federal government, allowing us to tackle the biggest problem in consumer finance. Our mission is to improve people’s lives by transforming how lending works. We believe that the only way for us to be successful is to foster a human-centered culture of openness, community, creativity and collaboration. Come join us!
