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).
