Work at Klar
At Klar we are building the Data Operating System for growing e-commerce companies.
Sounds pretty fancy, right? But what does that actually mean?
Over the last ten years many powerful tools have emerged that make selling online incredibly easy. There is Shopify for the shop system, Klaviyo for Email Marketing, Recharge for Subscription and many more.
But when it comes to data, most companies still use spreadsheets or basic tools like Data Studio. These take a lot of time to maintain and don't deliver any real insights.
With Klar, we want to change this.
We are building a data platform that is tailored to the needs of growing e-commerce brands. Fast to set-up and easy to maintain. Yet, providing detailed insights as to what brands can do to accelerate growth and increase profitability.
The initial feedback for Klar has been tremendous and much better than we could have hoped for. We are in a closed-beta at the moment but already have over 60 brands who use Klar daily. We now want to start accelerating and look for people to join us on our mission.

Who We Are
Nice to meet you. We are Frank, Cillier & Max.
We met around 10 years ago while working together in Cape Town and have been working at various start-ups together since. Cillier & Frank leading the tech teams while Max lead marketing.
Together, we have seen most, if not all, of start-up life. The good, the bad and the ugly 🤠
Before we even started to think about what we want to build, we spend many evenings talking about what kind of company we want to build. We established a set of principles that we value above anything else. More on those below 👇
Also, after having worked most of the last 10 years in e-commerce companies, we deeply care and empathise with the pain and struggles of our customers.
Starting a DTC business has never been easier. Making it successful has never been harder.
We want Klar to bring clarity. And helps brands to understand how they can grow faster and more sustainable.
What We Care About
Having been in this game together for the last 10 years, we know each other and what we want extremely well.
One guiding principles stands for us above everything else
Do Work You Can Be Proud Of
Unfortunately, too many times, things get sacrificed for short-term results. That might be necessary at times, but do it too often and it becomes the standard. And things start to derail from there...
To make this principle a reality, a few things are necessary.
We certainly know that this is not what everyone is looking for. But we are totally ok with that.
🏄 Ownership & Trust
We want to work with adults. That doesn't describe age, but attitude. If you say you'll do something. You do it. Simple.
We trust you to do what is right. And you trust us to do the same.
🧠 Work With The Best
To build something remarkable, you not only need to know your tools, but also how to you use them effectively, efficiently and wisely. And never shy away from learning something new.
We love working on hard problems. We feed off each other knowledge and experience and always want to get better. Each of us individually and together as a whole we strive for greatness.
💙 Empathy & Candor
Pretty much every problem ever can be traced back to people not talking to each other. If there is something you don't like, say it. But also make a real effort to understand where the other person is coming from.
If you find yourself nodding in agreement after reading this page, then we would love to talk to you!
