Our Mission

Clay is carefully designed to help you be more thoughtful with people.

Almost everyone intuitively understands the importance (and positive impact) of thoughtfulness towards others—in fact, you’ve probably benefited from someone else’s thoughtfulness recently! However, it’s difficult, effort intensive, and time consuming to be conscientious all the time. We wanted a more streamlined and sustainable approach for thoughtfully keeping in touch with our ever-growing network. And after searching and searching for something better, we built it ourselves.

We believe that Clay is the most stunning, powerful, and beautiful way to remember who you’ve met—and what matters to them. We’re grateful that our mission has resonated with a passionate user base and prominent investors like General Catalyst and Forerunner Ventures, and we are eager to carry it forward. We’d be honored to have you join us.

Our Product

Clay is a beautiful and private home for all the people and relationships in your life.

After you link your accounts (email, calendar, LinkedIn, Twitter, iMessage, and more), Clay automatically builds a collection of everyone you know, creating a beautiful profile for each relationship. Clay populates photos, bios, education and work history, location, and social profiles automatically from available data, and keeps them updated over time.

Clay then helps you deepen your relationships by allowing you to find anyone with powerfully simple search, take notes from your latest conversation, set reminders for specific dates, see when a contact changes their LinkedIn or Twitter bio, be notified when a contact is mentioned in the news, and much more.

The Role:

We’ve been intentionally and thoughtfully building our product with a small, dedicated user base over the last couple years. We’ve been careful to grow slowly so that we can make sure the product we are building is really meaningful. Up to know, we’ve grown mostly through word of mouth and serendipitous encounters, but we are ready to be more proactive with sharing our product with the world.

That’s where you come in! We want to find someone who believes deeply in our mission and is committed to spreading Clay and its mission to a huge number of users using both paid and organic channels.

You’ll be our first dedicated Growth hire, so you’ll be building a number of growth channels from scratch. You’ll have flexibility to experiment across a number of channels, test hypotheses regarding Clay’s target users, and build out LTV and ROAS metrics.

We also expect you to participate in giving us product feedback based on the engagement data you see.
