    Clara is a high-tech company that’s building a mortgage bank from the ground up. By completely re-imagining what it means to get a mortgage, we’re eliminating the obstacles put in place by traditional lenders. That means competitive rates. Intuitive experiences. Great outcomes.

    Before founding Clara, Jeff Foster (CEO) led housing policy for the US Treasury Department during the first term of the Obama Administration and Lukasz (Head of Product & Technology) oversaw development of technology and infrastructure at Bridgewater, the world's largest hedge fund.

    Our business is consumer finance, but at our heart, we are a technology company. Based in Downtown San Francisco, we’re a diverse team of professionals with backgrounds that bring together the best of Silicon Valley tech, financial services, the mortgage industry and the federal government – a rare combination that uniquely positions us to solve the biggest problem in consumer finance. We are driven by our mission to improve people’s lives and ultimately transform the way lending works and believe that the only way to do it is to foster a culture of creativity, collaboration, community and openness.
