Account Executive

Clipboard shapes the way schools are able to deliver great extracurricular programs, enriching the student experience in sports and activities.

We are pioneering a critical new category in education technology - the EMS (Extracurricular Management System). An EMS is a purpose-built platform designed to help schools manage the administration of their extracurricular activities. It is a one-stop-shop for extracurricular data and processes, allowing schools to save huge amounts of time and money, uphold their duty of care, and enhance communication to staff, students and parents.

Clipboard is a fast-growing venture-backed startup which is a part of the Startmate Sydney 2020 cohort, Australia’s leading startup accelerator program. The Clipboard platform is currently relied upon by over 35 leading schools and extracurricular providers across APAC. We are growing the team to help Clipboard scale globally in 2020 and establish the EMS as an integral part of the EdTech landscape.
