Eric’s role has transformed over the years, but his affinity for SEO and SEM, all things number and metrics-related, and constant need to test something new will never waiver. Eric prides himself on knowing “fun facts” on just about any topic thrown his way. You’ll most likely find him scrolling through one of dozens of open internet tabs whilst feasting on his latest ethnic microwavable meal.
He starts his day by reviewing code, drinking coffee, and working on the latest project to make the UX even better. He has been with the team for 3 years and was lured by chance to try new technologies. He’s so passionate about the product that he’s traveling to Washington, DC to train customers. When he’s not contemplating UX and raising kids (or chickens), he enjoys playing Destiny or the latest version of FIFA.
Sonja helps the IT team tackle challenges, and loves mastering the latest innovative ClearanceJobs features. When she isn’t sifting through her massive inbox, she’s sitting in the stands cheering on her two kids. If she’s not at work or pulled to the field or court, she’ll be at the lake, working on her tan.
Morgan started with an internship in 2005 and hasn’t left since. Once described as the muscle of ClearanceJobs, she will lay the smack down on anyone who dares put a space in-between Clearance and Jobs. When she isn’t dreaming up puntastic copy for the next direct mail campaign, she’s at home with her husband, two daughters and furbaby.
One of Joe's favorite things about the job is the ability to think outside of the box. He likes working with a small team that operates with a family feel and forward thinking ideas. Outside of the office he stays busy with his kids and a variety of athletic feats including golf, basketball, volleyball and slow pitch softball.
Eric has been with ClearanceJobs for 9 years. He was referred to the company by a friend and likes being a part of a small team who makes a big impact. His favorite forum is Larcasts Discussions. He’s played through all of the levels of Monument Valley on iPad, and his favorite keyboard shortcut is Command+D, which deletes a line of text in his editor. “I like terse code.”
Megan has been a part of the ClearanceJobs marketing team for over four years. She is passionate about email marketing and hosting meaningful events. In her free time, she can be found working on home improvement projects, going to Chick-Fil-A with her husband, or playing with their Blue Heeler, Ripley. Almond-flavored cake is the way to her heart.
Aside from being our ClearanceJobs know-it-all, Michelle is also the resident baker of the group. When she’s not putting out product fires or providing in-depth training to customers, she can be found on the softball field, cheering on the Iowa State Cyclones, whipping up her next confectionery creation or spending time with her puppies.
She began working for ClearanceJobs because it was the right technology, with the right team, at the right time. She has been with the team since 2014 and enjoys the challenge and problem-solving nature of the work. Her favorite forum is Reddit, she has too many favorite keyboard shortcuts to mention, and her favorite online game is Pacman.
Stephanie has the distinction of being the first full-time Des Moines-based ClearanceJobs staff member. Hired in 2006 to manage the ClearanceJobs marketing, she’s dabbled in everything from event planning to marketing automation to sales training. As General Manager, some would consider her the “mom” of the company – just don’t ask her to do your laundry.

Alex is one of the newest members of the ClearanceJobs team. He said he knew right away working for ClearanceJobs was the right thing to do. He enjoys the funny atmosphere and working with an ambitious team of the best developers. When he’s not programming, you can find him reading, playing soccer, or hiking.
Evan is the Founder and President of ClearanceJobs.com. He started with DHI (formerly Dice Holdings) in 2004 after selling ClearanceJobs to this fine bunch of folks. When he’s not working, he’s usually spending time with his family, writing songs, playing games (PCMasterRace, of course), or daydreaming of travel to faraway lands.
Troy came to the ClearanceJobs team from Microsoft in Seattle. He was attracted to the company for the workshop vibe – dress as you are (no suits and ties for our developers!) and the puzzle solving nature of the work. Outside the office he enjoys gaming. Troy has a racing simulation gaming set up that leaves his coworkers highly jealous.
After working for the site as a freelancer, Caroline recently had the joy of joining the ClearanceJobs team as its DC-based editor. Too talkative to join the CIA, Caroline loves ClearanceJobs because it allows her to serve America by serving the people and organizations who keep it safe. Plus, her teammates are awesome. She is fanatical about WWII history, vintage television and workplace culture.
Kimberly is our lead gen assistant. She loves working for ClearanceJobs because of the high integrity of the team and the overall company. When she’s not scrubbing lists to find potential customers, she can be found doing home improvement projects, painting (walls, furniture, canvases), learning new things, snuggling with her dog, trying to reason with her teenage daughter, reading and staying in touch with friends and family.
