At Claro, we bring together capabilities and methods from three key domains – social science, experience design and business strategy – which we believe are all essential for successful innovation.
We maintain a balance between these three disciplines to ensure that no single perspective dominates our approach. There are no “researchers” vs. “strategists”; we all “think” and we all “do”.
Since we solve problems which have global impact, our team is made up of passionate people from diverse cultural backgrounds, who have broad domain expertise, and speak a variety of languages.
