Clever engineering

We build tools to make technology easier to use in the classroom.

The engineering team is passionate about improving education and solving hard problems. The products our engineers build emerge from the real experiences of those we serve, whether they’re a steadfast administrator or a curious kindergartner.

"We're building an infrastructure for the entire education system. We build complex, secure solutions to seemingly simple problems like 'search.’ Everyone builds a search functionality but we have constraints while holding ourselves to industry standards."

Mohit Gupta, Technical Product Manager

Tools we use

Go Node ReactJS + Redux Docker MongoDB Postgres AWS

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.

Peter Nga
Software Engineer
‘‘

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.

Amelia Jones
Engineering Manager
‘‘

Here at Clever, we are willing to iterate, try new things, and reevaluate. We’re not stubborn when it comes to admitting we’re wrong or trying out new technologies. And I love working on products that are actually utilized in classrooms and that bring joy to teachers and students.

Potluck Mittal
Software Engineer
‘‘

The product team is embedded in the engineering team, so the relationship and trust that exists between the teams are extremely strong. Not because they trust me to make decisions about the product that they build, or because I trust them to build the product I have envisioned, but because there’s a shared vision between both teams.

Jenna James
Product Manager
‘‘

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.

Mohit Gupta
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.
