Engineering at Clay

Engineering team and processes

As a product-led team, every feature begins with design. A designer and engineer pair up to sketch out a solution, before going off to build during a given two week cycle. We do some lightweight work to determine what is in scope vs out of scope, and then we build quickly and release to users for feedback. We release multiple times a day, and do big product announcements each week. We track our backlog in Linear (linear.app) and do PRs on Github.

Technical Challenges
  • We process hundreds of data points per person across tens of millions of person profiles each day.
  • We reverse engineer integrations with data providers (Linkedin, iMessage, iCloud) that have no APIs.
  • We do on-device machine learning, data processing, and encryption that no other iOS app has done historically
Projects you might work on
  • Build a scraping engine for Linkedin that queues a user's network and enriches each profile on-device

  • Build an iOS app entirely with Swift UI

  • Architect a system that can import a user's email and calendar history (often millions of rows, for our users), enrich each person with external data, and then calculate who they're closest to, in minutes
