VP, Regulatory Affairs

CLEAR transforms what is uniquely you – your fingerprints, your face, your eyes – into a secure, biometric key to frictionless experiences. We are creating a world where travel is effortless, where accessing your office building is as simple as walking in, and where shopping is as easy as walking in and out of a store—without ever once showing an ID or credit card. CLEAR currently powers secure, frictionless customer experiences in nearly 40 U.S. airports and venues. With over 3 million members so far, CLEAR is the identity platform of the future, today.

Regulatory work is a critical part of our business; we are working hard to manage our regulatory obligations, develop relationships with regulators, and advise the business on our legal requirements.  The VP Regulatory Affairs will report directly to SVP of Corporate Affairs.
