Job description

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

GetClever is a family subscription service for learning games. Each game is hand-picked for its immense fun factor and the clever way it ignites passions, sparks curiosity, and improves skills.

As an engineer on the team, you'll play an important role as a technical leader and collaborator responsible for helping design, build and iterate on a guided, cross-platform, educational experience for young kids at home.

This will be a full-stack role with fast-moving iterations and experiments, working in close collaboration with product and design team members. Some examples of projects you might work on are:

  • Building intuitive and engaging web and native mobile user experiences
  • Implementing game mechanics and reward systems
  • Building a subscription-based billing system
  • Implementing APIs for 3rd party game integrations
  • Data analytics and game recommendations engine

To get a sense of what the Clever engineering team is working on, check out our engineering blog.

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).

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.
