Letter from Our CEO

Growing up, Computer and Electrical Engineering played a huge role in my development. My father engineered radar and nuclear systems, and the idea of building something right was ingrained in me from the very beginning. But it wasn’t all function without form — then and now, my heart is in design, music, art, nature and culture.

These influences are instilled in everything we do at ClearSummit.

We Value People Over Tech

We strive to make meaningful change in the world. We want our products to live beyond us, not just be a quick “MVP” win that is later scrapped. We look to the future and create lasting experiences that will continually provide unique value in users’ lives.

Our first project, -isms, was a direct response to social media that was becoming more depersonalized and cluttered. The goal was to help recreate unique, joyful connections with friends and family in a growingly disconnected world.

With Project Foodie, we sought to empower novice cooks to easily create masterful dishes; everyone could experience the joy of cooking in an entirely new way. Every year since its launch, it has been listed as an Essential App by Apple for its innovation, design and functionality.

During California’s water crisis, we partnered with Belkin to empower homeowners to protect their homes from pipe bursts, to conserve water, and in doing so, help the environment.

We have first hand experience in tech startups. Whether it's bootstrapping and selling SaaS startups, or raising funding rounds, our passion and expertise lies in taking products from 0 to 1.

We're not hired to check the box for having a development partner. We thrive in the unknown and support the entire organization. We commonly step outside of our original role to give input to effect massive organizational change.

Full Team Alignment Creates the Best Products. (That Includes You.)

Build Fast, Build Right and Move at 10x

We move fast and we document. We maintain detailed documentation, thorough test cases, and tight feedback loops with minimal overhead.

We believe in the 80/20 rule. We want 20% of the action to get 80% of the results, while still allowing us to quickly build minimum viable products and prototype applications. Our processes have been distilled from decades of building products and working in agencies with high-caliber teams to launch products quickly and effectively.

We don’t just churn something out based on a requirements doc. That's not how good products are built, so we don’t do it.

Because if you catch a mistake in the product in a design conversation, it’s cheap. Fixing mistakes in development is a little more expensive, but once it's been built — exponentially expensive.

So, we hire and encourage a team where every contributor thinks about the product holistically. Our culture promotes unicorn designers who understand code and unicorn engineers who understand design.

This way, we never get to the end and realize we didn't do it right from the beginning.

Every day, we strive to be 1% better and build products that leave the world 1% better, too.

We Hire Talent Who Want to Build Software Right
