Software Engineer II

Published on December 04, 2023

We’re on a Mission to Make Government Permitting and Licensing Easier and Faster. At Clariti, we empower governments to deliver exceptional citizen experiences through our easy-to-use permitting and licensing software, and our dedication to service excellence. Through our 13+ years working with city, county, state, and provincial governments across North America, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the challenges governments face in permit and license management - such as staff shortages and ever-increasing volume - and the need for more flexible, user-friendly solutions. So we set out to make a difference. Clariti, then BasicGov, was formed in 2008 as the first public sector AppExchange partner on the Salesforce platform: a stand-alone, 100% software-as-a-service company offering industry-leading permitting and licensing solutions for government, and truly reliable customer support. Our team’s goal is to provide the most intuitive and low-maintenance solutions on the market to make complex processes easier for citizens and staff.

Our team voted and made it official! Clariti has been awarded the prestigious, Great Place To Work in Canada, and we couldn’t be more humbled. Our People make empowering cultures possible, and we know what it takes to drive strong engagement because we live it every day, in all of the small and big things we do.
