Clever is the fastest-growing company in K-12 education - we’re relied on by half of all K-12 schools in the United States and hundreds of education software companies, including the largest in the world - Google, Amazon, Scholastic, and Khan Academy.

Thousands of school districts are already using Clever’s core suite of free products, and we’re currently launching a new product called Goals: a method for schools to assess student progress across multiple applications, helping them make better decisions about curriculum. We’ve already built deep relationships with the biggest districts in the country and several of our largest districts are already on board for Goals specifically, so we’re well-positioned to grow Goals quickly. This is a shift for us, as it’s our first product that’s sold to schools, and it represents a great opportunity for us to hire experienced K-12 sales team members who can create and grow powerful, authentic relationships with districts across the country.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for selling Goals into a targeted subset of prospective clients within your territory - a client base that will include the biggest, most influential school districts in America. You’ll be dedicated to making districts stronger and smarter and seeking out opportunities for growth, and although you possess a strategic approach to selling and strive to meet and exceed revenue goals, you’ll always have schools’ best interests in mind. If this sounds like you, we want you to join our Goals team as a Regional Sales Manager.

In terms of what we’re looking for: you love building relationships and doing whatever it takes to make a partnership successful. Learning how partners’ organizations work inside and out? No sweat. Using data to prove ROI? That’s what you do. Complex deal negotiations to grow an account? Your idea of a great time.


  • Drive revenue by building strong personal relationships with existing districts on Goals and prospecting within your territory (the West Coast)
  • We expect that this person will be based in the territory they cover, but will travel frequently (25-40% of the time) to visit customers and industry conferences
  • Align to senior district leaders to elevate Clever as a strategic partner
  • Close business consistently at or above quota level
  • Develop and execute on a strategic plan for the territory and create reliable forecasts
  • Work to establish best practices that will be the foundation of this growing team
  • Become an expert in the EdTech market to inform product and marketing teams


  • BA/BS degree or equivalent in a related field
  • Ability to operate independently and excel in a high growth, fast paced, entrepreneurial environment where the only constant is change
  • 6+ years of applicable consultative sales experience
  • Excellent communication, negotiation and forecasting skills
  • Ability to gather and use data to inform decision making and persuade others
  • You have a desire to work in a diverse, highly collaborative team environment
  • Ability to assess business opportunities, read buyers, and orchestrate the closure of business with an accurate understanding of district needs


  • Experience with SaaS sales, sales hunting and platform
  • MBA degree or evidence of continuous professional development
  • Experience with K-12 education in the United States
  • Experience carrying a revenue target with the ability to develop compelling strategies that deliver results

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
