Clever unlocks a wealth of digital learning, so teachers can meet each student where they are. School can be engaging, personalized and fun for everyone. When every student gets a high quality education, every student gets a lifetime of opportunity.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Founded by educators and technologists passionate about improving education, Clever is on a mission to unlock new ways to learn for all students. Already used by more than 65% of U.S. K-12 schools, Clever brings all applications into one secure portal and provides single sign-on for everyone. With the leading network of digital learning providers, Clever makes school more engaging, personalized, and fun. 

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

As an engineer on the Discovery team, you’ll work on solving one of edtech’s most painful issues: 65% of edtech licenses purchases go unused by classrooms. The Discovery team’s mission is to build the best place for educators to find, evaluate, and purchase educational software for classrooms as well as making it easier for edtech companies to distribute in the competitive K-12 market via the Clever App Store. The public version of the App Store has just been released so you will be at the forefront of one of the most promising initiatives happening in Clever Engineering. 

We’re a dynamic, inclusive, ego-free team that truly enjoys working with each other and we hope you also hold joyful collaboration among the things that most excite you.

  • Collaborate with Product Management and Marketing to research, design, and code major new features and enhancements that will best engage, educate, and delight educators.
  • Conduct A/B experiments that guide product development towards better understanding the needs of our customers and thus drive our conversion rate ever upwards. 
  • Be an important part of Clever’s ecosystem of engineering excellence as we strive to create both the best possible customer experiences and top quality internal architectures across all of our products and initiatives.
  • Understand and prioritize the Clever engineering culture - see our blog post on Defining Clever's Engineering Culture.

The Clever App Store team works across the stack, including AWS Lambda, Glue, Dynamo, RDS, Redshift, to deliver products that are robust and delightful for students, educators, and application partners to use. Clever has a microservice container-based architecture and is hosted entirely in AWS. We use Go for backend services, with Node, TypeScript, and React for frontend services.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • 3+ years of experience as a full-stack Software Engineer
  • Led projects and collaborated with a team to create meaningful impact
  • Architected systems to solve a variety of product and data needs
  • Strong fundamentals in computer science and software engineering
  • The drive to learn and teach through collaboration and code reviews
  • A desire to work in a diverse, highly collaborative team environment
  • Commitment to equity and belonging. At Clever, we believe the classrooms we serve and our company’s halls should be spaces that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. That is why we are committed to building diverse teams, inviting every voice, and creating a safe space for everyone to be their authentic self. By fostering equity and belonging within our circles of influence, we unlock learning for ALL students. 

CLEVER PERKS!

  • A competitive salary and equity package in a well-funded, high-growth company

  • Best-in-class mental healthcare service that supports employees' mental and emotional wellness
  • Unlimited book learning credits to amazon.com and small, local bookstores
  • Professional development budget and LinkedIn Learning subscription with unlimited access to thousands of expert-led online courses
  • Annual company retreat and quarterly team events to connect with fun, bright coworkers

INTERVIEW PROCESS

At Clever, we value a holistic hiring process and want to get to know the candidate both technically and non-technically. We believe interviewing is not only a time for the team to interview the candidate, but the candidate is also interviewing us! Our interview process is follows:

a 30 minute phone call with your recruiter, a 30 minute 1:1 conversation with the hiring manager via Zoom, a technical architecture assessment with 2 of our team members and lastly the virtual onsite interview. Throughout each session, and with each individual the candidate meets, the candidate is given time to ask the interview questions as well. 

In the final round, you have a chance to meet a cross-functional product team member, spend more time with your future manager and complete two more technical assessments: a coding session and a networking interview. All of our technical assessments are extremely collaborative as it is a chance for the interviewers and the candidates to see what it would be like to truly work together! The candidate is also not tested on a specific language or framework and is given the opportunity to work in the language they feel most comfortable in. Prior to the virtual onsite, the recruiter will hold a 30 minute prep call with the candidate to walk through their schedule, who they will be meeting and what will be covered in each session.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

At Clever, we believe the classrooms we serve and our company’s halls should be spaces that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. That is why we are committed to building diverse teams, inviting every voice, and creating a safe space for all people within Clever. That includes constantly looking inward as a company and as individuals to examine and combat the ways we perpetuate inequitable behaviors, practices and systems. Outside of our workplace, we foster equity and belonging within our circles of influence in order to unlock learning for ALL students.
