About Us

Clare is an early-stage, e-commerce startup that’s on a mission to make paint shopping easier and more inspiring, so people everywhere can create a home they love.  We’re challenging the status quo of paint, and we’re looking for smart, scrappy problem solvers with an entrepreneurial spirit to join our diverse and passionate team. Clare is venture-funded, with an A-list roster of investors who have backed top consumer brands like Warby Parker, Harry’s, Casper, Glossier and more.

What we value:

Results – We measure success by impact and outcomes, not output. In addition to being results-driven you take full ownership and accountability for your work and add value above and beyond assigned tasks.

Growth Mindset: You’re curious and love learning. You constantly seek new information and experiences. You strive for continuous improvement both personally and professionally. You have a deep desire to understand the inner workings of our business, our customers, the industry we operate in and the world around us. You live by the belief that learning never stops.

Speed – Fast doesn’t just win the race, it gets a head start on the next one. You have a bias for action and a get sh*t done attitude. You execute with a sense of urgency, are decisive and thoughtful.

Efficiency: Those most successful in our organization have a highly process oriented mindset and are adept at creating scalable processes that enable efficiency. You work smarter, not harder.

Confidence: You think big, outside the box, live in a world without boundaries and aren’t afraid to take risks or fail. You regularly stretch yourself, are unafraid to step outside your comfort zone, and you’re comfortable being uncomfortable. You have conviction in your ideas and recommendations, and always have a clear rationale for “the why.”
