Customer Support Specialist

Clipboard helps schools, students and parents get more out of their extracurricular activities. We’re looking for an experienced Customer Support Specialist to play a key role in supporting Clipboard’s customers.

About Us

At Clipboard, our vision is that every student should have access to the life lessons and opportunities that great extracurricular activities provide.

We provide software to schools that enables them to run great extracurricular programs, and helps students and parents get more out of activities - from sport, to music, performing arts, outdoor education and more.

Clipboard is pioneering a brand new category in EdTech - the Extracurricular Management System (EMS) - like a Learning Management System (LMS), but for the stuff that happens beyond the classroom. Our product is used by thousands of staff and students at schools all across Australia.

We’ve recently closed a seed round led by Jelix Ventures and graduated from Australia’s leading startup accelerator program, Startmate. Now we’re looking at how we can scale the app, expand beyond Australia into global markets, and grow from 50,000+ staff and students to 500,000+!

As a customer-first company, we’re super passionate about providing an awesome experience that people love, and our customer support team is core to that.
