Senior Software Engineer - Secure Sync at Clever
San Francisco, CA, US

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.

As an engineer on the Secure Sync team at Clever, you’ll work on the core platform of Clever that helps connect the districts on our platform to our learning application partners. We work with large volumes of data that is integral to the success of Clever and education of America’s students. The Secure Sync product allows automatic creation of accounts for students, teachers, and staff so that they can use their applications on day one.

A Day in the Life

As an engineer on the Secure Sync team, you will be a part of a tight-knit, collaborative team working on impactful features like:

Secure APIs that can scale and give fine-grained control to districts on what student/teacher/staff data apps can access

Resilient data pipelines that consistently and successfully sync data to Clever and shares data with our application partners

Intuitive UIs to give districts control over the data they share with each application, and applications control over the data they receive

Products that go above and beyond just allowing districts to provide data via their Student Information System (SIS), including custom accounts and one-off edits

We work across the full-stack to create products that are robust and delightful for students, educators, and developers to use.
