More than fifteen years after it was founded, Clearview's philosophy is still going strong: We’re a remote-first, distributed software company with our team members spread across four continents. We specialize in partnering up for the long haul -- so we seek ongoing partnerships that lead to a deep understanding of your business domain and mutual, shared growth. We’re stack-agnostic — we can build a team for and/or adapt to any new tech. We see business as a vehicle for personal growth. We encourage and trust our team members to self-manage, promoting autonomy and innovation.

Time to meet the Administration Assistant at Clearview, Rachel!

How do you spend your time outside of the office?

My office actually consists of my dining table in an '86 Airstream that you can find parked somewhere near a river in the United States. So when I'm not in my "office", you can find me on the river, preferably on rapids, surfing waves in my kayak.


If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

If Hollywood made a movie about my life I would like to see Gillian Anderson crossed with the Hulk cast as me. I love Gillian Anderson for her role in X-files, and she is generally portrayed as a redhead (I am a redhead). I also have super strength like the Hulk, so I'll take both.

What is the favorite part about working for Clearview?

My favorite aspect of working for Clearview is my teammate's ability to throw tasks at me, be brand new, and have free reign to dive head first into digging deep to solve problems. It's fun and challenging, I learn a lot, and it makes me feel helpful.

If you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Now that I am in my thirties I rarely drink, apparently in your thirties two drinks lead to hangovers. But if I picked one beer it would definitely be a delicious IPA, probably citrusy.


What’s your next step or a few goals you’d like to accomplish in life or while with Clearview?

It's taken me longer than most to settle on a path in life that I have big goals, but I am there now. My main goals in life right now are to finish my bachelor's degree in Accounting while working two jobs that I love AND make the US Freestyle kayak team at least once, if not multiple times.

When are you the happiest?

I'm the happiest when I have helped my coworkers solve problems and taken work off their plate OR when I have pushed myself in kayaking to do something that scares me or learn a new freestyle trick.
