The Team:

An engineer is only as good as their tools, and as a Developer Experience Engineer you will work with a team of passionate and highly collaborative engineers to build the best in class tooling for Clear Street.

As a team lead, you will be helping shape the developer experience group at Clear Street, defining priorities, collaborating with other teams, and ultimately molding how Clear Street engineers. Finally, you'll be working as a key part of the Infrastructure team -- a part of the bedrock that defines Clear Street engineering -- being a voice of experience in the team, evolving our technical standards and best practices, and furthering our culture of engineering excellence.
