About us

Clerk is a Customer Identity Platform for the modern web. We provide developers with full-stack React components like SignUp/, SignIn/, and UserProfile/ and hooks such as useUser, and useOrganization to handle everyday but hard-to-get-right user and organization management flows.

In the first half of 2023, we achieved many milestones. We expanded our authentication feature set with our new Password and SAML products, launched multi-domain SSO, and shipped the most comprehensive Next.js App Router authentication. It’s time to expand our team to fulfill our mission to provide the most comprehensive Customer Identify Platform for your SaaS.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for developers to build and maintain Clerk Frontend and Backend APIs that streamline user and organization management. We recommend that you look at the public roadmap to get an idea of what’s coming.

Current stack

Clerk components and libraries are written in TypeScript using React and Emotion. They are packaged with Lerna and deployed on NPM. The backend is written in Go, TypeScript, and Postgres. We also use Cloudflare and Cloudflare Workers.


The team at Clerk is about 35 people, but our aspirations are big. To drive our mission forward, our culture emphasizes frequent deploys and high-quality developer experience, both externally and internally. We recommend reading our weekly changelog posts to get an idea of our pace.

Clerk is a remote team with a timezone concentration in the US and the EU (especially Greece UTC+3). We believe everyone should work their own hours, but we also drive a lot of value from our overlapping hours each day.

Our team encourages thoughtfulness and quality over speed. We recognize that innovating on frontend developer experience requires patience and collaboration with the community, and we will spend the time to get products right.

Lastly, we write a lot. Our strong writing culture is crucial to function effectively as an async distributed team.


Even if you don’t fit these descriptions exactly, we would like to encourage you to apply if you find these challenges interesting. We look forward to talking to you!
