Thank you for your interest in Clearpool!

So you are interested in Working at Clearpool but can’t find an open role that fits your experience? You’re in the right place then, as we are using this application posting to allow you to submit your interest in joining us along with whatever additional details we will need to help you let us know what positions we should consider you for. To proceed please read this carefully and follow the guidance provided and make sure you read our Job Applicant Privacy Notice.

How this works

Once you submit an application here, a member of our Org Dev & People team will look at your application and classify which department it may be relevant to. Then if new roles are opened we will review your application against the shortlist criteria for possible consideration. If there is a potential fit one of our Org Dev & People team will reach out via email to see about progressing you through our recruitment process.

We’ve plans to grow quite a bit and are therefore delighted to identify people who share common interests and passions, and who are keen to join us in that journey.

Things You Should Keep in Mind

Do make sure you tell us the kind of position you want most, and are most qualified for. The questions we ask in the submission form are there to help us understand this about you. We also ask for a short cover letter or note to give you the opportunity to tell us this information so we don't have to guess from reading your CV.

Note that not all the questions require an answer, but completing the optional details can help us. However don't worry, not completing them will not impact our assessment.

Remember, we want you to find the right future position that is best suited to your skills and future aspirations, so please avoid submitting a CV here if you've already applied to an open position as we’ll already have your details and track you through that current engagement.

What We Care About is a pioneer in capital markets, market structure and financial technology. We use our knowledge and innovations to build and operate next generation execution service infrastructure, like exchanges, in both the traditional capital markets, and the tokenised market space. We have extensive experience, and are world leaders in, ultra low latency exchange solutions, as well as holding deep expertise in tokenisation offerings including distributed ledger technologies such as blockchains and cryptoassets. In short, we're really interested in what we do and enjoy learning and sharing new knowledge.

We are passionate about people — As an innovative, modern, technology-driven company, we are looking for smart, motivated individuals who relish learning, and enjoy solving challenging problems within a cooperative, respectful and supportive environment. If that’s you then we’d like you to join us in creating and driving adoption of the global financial markets ecosystem of the future. We intend to make a real difference and you can help us.

We are passionate about technology — We’re big in the C++ world and our engineers have, and continue to make, significant contributions to the evolution of the language and its libraries through their involvement in ISO C++ and projects like Boost. For the past 20 years our people have been at the forefront of advancements in software development, from driving best practice in distributed agility, to pioneering the defacto approach to building ultra low latency systems.

We are passionate about community — We participate in and care about our technology community. Our engineers run, contribute to, and enjoy valued participation in open source projects. We speak at and help organise international conferences on all aspects of software, people and technology, and recently brought a new conference to Belfast, Clearpool’s home, where we also run the local C++ meetup. Joining Clearpool is a first step into a wider world where you can grow your ideas and yourself.

In addition to making sure the core offerings above are available to all employees we also believe it is important that employees have a chance to participate in the wider success of the company. With that in mind we also offer participation in the Clearpool Share Option scheme.
