Clever is the fastest-growing product in K-12 education, depended on by over 150 software companies and over a third of America's schools. These organizations depend 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 dead simple, despite the complex legacies of the school system.

You’re a capable designer, gifted at visual storytelling and crafting easy-to-use interfaces. You’re excited to apply your skills to a broad spectrum of challenges, from designing a login page for a five-year-old, to explaining single sign-on integration flows to application developers, to researching the needs of CTOs at the largest school districts in the country. You excel at defining the design challenge, iterating quickly, listening to users, and working with engineers to see your ideas implemented (you can craft HTML/CSS/JavaScript as well? Awesome!).


  • Dig deep into the everyday problems faced by Clever’s diverse array of stakeholders (students, teachers, school administrators, and developers) to discover products and services they truly love.
  • Work collaboratively with our product and engineering teams to create solutions from sketch to launch that serve clear business and user needs.
  • Create beautiful designs across all of Clever's products and properties, championing a high bar for design excellence.


  • You have at least four years of professional experience as a full-time designer.
  • Your portfolio shows exceptional work designing interfaces and communicating visually.
  • You're a fluent creator - whether it's sketching layouts or perfecting high fidelity prototypes.
  • You're looking for a startup environment - iterating quickly, rolling up your sleeves, and being self-directed.
  • You have deep awareness of the context and users you design for, and ask "why?" as often as "what?"
  • You’re excited to be part of a diverse, collaborative team of product managers, engineers, and other teammates.

What Clever offers

  • A chance to revolutionize the way schools use technology.
  • Competitive salary and significant equity in well-funded, high-growth company.
  • Catered lunch daily.
  • Generous vacation and holidays.
  • Top-notch healthcare, vision, & dental coverage.
  • Unlimited credits for learning.
  • An incredible team of fun, bright coworkers.
