About Clair

If you can send your friends money in seconds, why does it still take your employer two weeks to send your paycheck?

At Clair, we are re-imagining the future of finance for America's workers by giving them an app that allows them to get paid as soon as they clock out of work. But we're not just another digital bank; we create seamless user experiences by embedding our products within the scheduling, workforce management, and payroll apps they use every day. And, as a mission-oriented fintech, our promise to our users is simple: we'll never charge our users for accessing the money they've already worked for.

We welcome people who add a new set of experiences to our melting pot of backgrounds. We're 15-ish, spread across 6 states, hailing from 9 different countries. We've got grandparents working alongside recent graduates, Americans partnering with immigrants, and self-taught coders debating with Ivy League graduates. We embrace diversity in all its forms.
