The most widely used single-sign on platform for K-12 education in the USA.

My first full time job out of college, I wanted to work at a place where I could learn fast and do work that would help others. So I dove head first into Ed Tech.

In my first month there, I implemented Clever Badges, the easiest way for young students to log into the apps that they use at school. When students are still learning to read, it’s unreasonable to expect them to memorize and reproduce secure passwords, so the excellent designers and security professionals at Clever came up with the idea of QR code logins for early education, so that a student could log in by flashing a badge at their camera. A colleague and I worked together to turn it into reality.

Through deep dives on the state of education, to the mentorship from my colleagues, my work at Clever formed my technical and social outlook on the world.

Clever was recently acquired by Kahoot! for $500 million. I’m proud to see our work have become a cornerstone of American digital education infrastructure.
