Tools we use
What our engineers are saying
There are a lot of companies with smart people—we've got a sharp team that’s also incredibly patient and humble. There’s a lot of trust placed in individual engineers, and you get to pick the projects and challenges you want to tackle.
I love building things. Even as a manager, I still get to build things, and it’s important as a manager to stay in the code. Since I do both, manage and code, I get to see how collaborative Clever is across the sales, success, and engineering teams. You can go downstairs to talk to someone on the solutions team or they can stop by and have a direct conversation with you. Open dialog is welcomed and encouraged.
We are building an infrastructure for the entire education system. We are building complex, secure solutions to seemingly simple problems like 'search.’ Everyone builds a search functionality but we have constraints: encrypted data at rest, in transit, and only accessible to certain users—while holding ourselves to industry standards. And the best part is, we do a lot with a small team so engineering impact is very high.
Technical Product Manager
Engineers at Clever work directly with the product team. I get to have say and input on where the Clever product is going and can discuss with the managers and PMs on what problems we are trying to solve. And Clever values cross-team collaboration not just between engineering and product, but also with the sales and marketing teams.
