Our very first intern wrote an iPhone app on the Clever platform that spread to over a thousand schools on the day it was released. Another intern wrote an app that let schools provision Google accounts, which now manages over 2 million student and teacher accounts.

Clever engineers most commonly utilize technologies/tools like MongoDB, AWS, Typescript, React, and Go to develop our products.
