Full Stack Software Engineer at Clever
San Francisco, California, United States (Posted Nov 7 2014)
About the company

At its core, education has a fundamental data problem: schools run on legacy infrastructure that's impossible for hackers to build on top of. We're on a mission to replace the terrible things that developers have to do to build classroom software (think nightly CSV FTP transfers) with an API that feels more like Facebook's or Stripe's: https://clever.com/developers/docs.
When we started two years ago, four schools used Clever. Today, Clever is used by over 26,000 schools, making it the fastest-growing company in education. We're looking for talented hackers who want to help us build Clever into something every school, student, and teacher relies on.
