Founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable, Clever is the platform that powers technology in the classroom. Today, almost half of the K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom
In 2014, Clever won the ‘Crystal Clear’ award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own ‘Share my Lesson’ platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100+ employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
Clever is backed by top-tier investors, so we’re lucky enough to have the financial freedom to build the company we’ve always wanted to work for. We go to work every day knowing we’re helping to improve education for millions of kids. It’s a cool job perk (way better than free meals, though we have those, too).

Our infrastructure is built following the lambda architecture with a blend of Java- and Python-based web services, where Hadoop/MapReduce jobs (on Cloudera CDH) are managed with Azkaban building out batch updates on Voldemort servers while Kafka queues feed into YARN/Spark streaming infrastructure for real-time updates. We use Parquet, Spark, and Scalding for our ETL jobs. We use Gearman for asynch job processing and our data access API's run on Django with integrated Authn/Authz (OAuth2 upcoming). And we currently use MongoDB and PostgreSQL for dataset storage with Ember.js for web apps and D3.js for charting and other visualizations.
