Overview

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:

Clay is growing quickly, and our iOS app is extremely important to all we do. As an iOS engineer, you’ll use your strong grasp of the iOS ecosystem to continue building an amazing experience for our users on iOS. You’ll pay special attention to the magical touches that make Clay’s experience that much more special—the exact timings and damping on the animations, the shadows on the cards, the haptic feedback on taps.

Clay’s app is one of the most advanced SwiftUI apps in production, and was written in SwiftUI from day 1. We’ve tackled some of the most frustrating bugs, and designed some of the most seamless interactions. If you’re interested in using SwiftUI professionally, this is the place to do it.

That said, we’re generalists at heart and you’ll be directly involved with hard problems across the stack, including our backend and web frontend. We’re not just looking for an engineer—we’re looking for someone with creativity and drive who wants to build something people love. #LI-REMOTE
