About ClearGov

Our mission is to create easy-to-use software to help the U.S. public sector - local governments, counties, special districts, and school districts - budget better. ClearGov is a rapidly-growing, venture-funded SaaS company that offers a complete Budget Cycle Management Suite that enables public sector clients to plan, build, and present their budgets more efficiently and effectively. We’re a mission-driven company that envisions a world where modern software enables every local government to best serve and improve its community.

Our software is utilized nationwide by hundreds of towns, cities, school districts, and other local agencies who are part of the ClearGov community, and we’re adding more every day. We’ve been named to the “GovTech 100” for eight years running, and we’re on BostInno’s “50 On Fire” list, as well. ClearGov also earned a place on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies for three consecutive years, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

The ClearGov team is a tight-knit group of talented folks who are passionate about our mission and committed to building a positive, productive company culture. We believe in an inclusive environment that values both productivity and well-being, and every day, we strive to get better at our work, all while being considerate, trustworthy, and transparent in everything we do.

  • Be Positive: We believe that the first step in getting something done is believing that it can be done because we know that positive energy brings enthusiasm, excitement, and empowerment to the team.
  • Be Better: We constantly ask ourselves, "How can we do this better?" because we know that our families, colleagues, investors, and customers depend on the results we deliver every day.
  • Be Fierce: We seek to have bold conversations that interrogate reality and provoke learning to help us tackle our toughest challenges and enrich relationships.
  • Be Fun: We value the lighter side of life because we believe that balance, laughter, and enjoying every moment fuel the soul.
