Rather than hire for a particular role or title, we are eager to speak with interested candidates, and structure roles that satisfy your aspirations and meet our rapidly changing engineering requirements. We encourage exceptional software engineers with all levels of experience to apply to Clarisights. We are particularly keen to hire applicants with 3 to 12 years of experience.

What do we mean by exceptional?

  • Excellent programming skills. We expect all our engineers at every level to code with enthusiasm.

  • A deep appreciation for software engineering founded in first principles. We are not looking for proficiency in specific languages or stacks. Instead, we want engineers who command a deep knowledge of the tools and languages they have worked with. And can communicate this knowledge effectively.

  • A hacker mentality to building things. We hire people who are willing to pick up a problem and iterate solutions with originality and speed. And then move on to the next problem.

  • You take out your own trash. We are building a no-BS, low-touch, low-anxiety workplace. (This is really hard.) We like people to manage their own time, tools and projects with self-awareness and transparency. We will give you feedback regularly and then give you all the tools you need to get better at what you do. And then we will let you get on with it.

  • An approach to work that is collaborative, constructive and optimistic. Our engineers often work in small functional and cross-functional teams. A positive attitude to teamwork is essential.

  • A willingness to learn. We don't expect applicants to have exposure to marketing. Instead, we are happy to hire talented engineers and teach them what they need to know.

  • Strong opinions are held lightly. We like to work with people who feel strongly about things, but can also change their minds when they have to.

What can you expect to do?

  • Redesign and rebuild our codebase into a form and shape ready for the next stage of our growth.

  • Translate state-of-the-art software development into state-of-the-art product experiences for our users. Just like software engineers advanced from Notepad to IDEs, we want our users to leap forward from spreadsheets to responsive and interactive data workspaces.

  • Build, maintain and evolve systems and sub-systems that help us solve problems in power-user UIs, ETL automation, databases, and infrastructure.

  • Adopt and invent engineering solutions that can help Clarisights do more for our current customers, and also diversify into new business verticals.

  • Work closely with the Customer Success and Solutions Engineering functions to address emerging customer problems. We have fantastic customers who come up with fantastic problems.

  • We derive engineering inspiration and product direction from companies such as Snowflake, Notion, Grafana, Looker, Tableau and Fivetran. This means our engineers are constantly exploring, testing and building new technology. And then starting all over again.

What we offer 🌟

  • Ownership. You won’t be delegated tasks. You will be given ownership and accountability of outcomes and all the support you need. It is your task to figure out how to remove roadblocks and reach desired outcomes.

  • Learning. We are just getting started and you will have a unique vantage point on how to build a company with a very strong product and massive customer demand. You will probably learn more than you ever thought in the process. These learnings are most likely the most valuable thing we can offer. Curious people thrive at Clarisights.

  • Meaning. At Clarisights your work matters. It has consequences. Our engineers work on projects that are unique in vision and unsurpassed in scale. Our talent team is building a world-class team across every function. And our SSMs are more than just advocating for a product: they are changing the way companies work with data.

  • Wealth. We pay competitive salaries and offer generous equity. And we’re building a workplace that is low-anxiety, light-management, high-impact and collegial. We want people to do good work, with great people in a kind environment.
