Who we are
What Motivates Us
Clever is motivated by our vision to advance technology that works for students everywhere. By securely connecting the data and applications that schools rely on, we know we can foster safe, secure, and fun learning experiences for students and educators.
Our culture tenets
Clever succeeds because everyone on the team understands that it takes every person in every role to deliver a great experience for our partners and districts.
Clever is a team of lifelong learners. Cleverites love it when their work allows them to learn new things, but they also love to share what they’ve learned with others—they eagerly teach new skills to teammates and help others improve.
Clever is able to iterate and improve because Cleverites constantly question how we should be doing things. We “don’t trust the textbook” because we understand the importance of questioning, experimenting, and coming up with new solutions.
Cleverites join Clever because they are passionate about driving change within the educational ecosystem. This passion drives us all to search for ways to create a larger impact with our work.
Clever believes that the classrooms we serve and our company’s halls should be spaces that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
Benefits and Perks
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.
Life at Clever
Every year, Cleverites come together for Camp Clever, a company tradition where we recharge, bond, and gear up for our busiest season: Back to School. Here, we unplug, enjoy unforgettable events and strengthen our work relationships.
Likewise, our Winter Rally is an annual event where you’ll connect with your teammates, gain insights into our goals, and commit to making a meaningful difference.
We’re keeping our San Francisco (HQ) office available to the folks who value an in-office experience while embracing team members who prefer to work in a remote setting. It’s a flexible model that works for everyone.
