The Opportunity

Clever is the fastest growing product in K-12 education; depended on by over 500 software companies and over 60% of America's schools. These organizations rely on Clever to put the best software in the hands of over 20 million students every day. Clever's job is to make this task incredibly simple, despite the complex legacies of the school system.

We're looking for talented engineers who want to help us build Clever into something every school, student, and teacher relies on.

A Day in the Life

As an engineer on the SSO and Portal team, you'll join an energetic tight-knit team working on features like:

  • The Clever Portal experience on mobile devices
  • New features and functionality in the Clever Portal so teachers can run their classrooms through Clever
  • Saved Passwords, the “LastPass” for education, allowing students to easily get logged into any learning application
  • The APIs and protocols that power secure SSO
  • Clever Badges, QR codes that schools can print and give to kids to login without a password, saving valuable class time

We work across the full-stack to create products that are robust and delightful for students, educators, and developers to use. Currently we write frontend code in Node.js, TypeScript, and React with Redux and use Go for backend. We also use MongoDB, Postgres, Dynamo, Docker, and many AWS services (ECS, Step Functions, etc).
