Who we are

We wear many different hats and goggles here at Clara. We like to work, learn, and grow together through collaboration and shared experiences. We value a diverse team with diverse backgrounds from all over the world. While we all come from different life experiences, we all share the core ingredients of passion, compassion, and motivation.
