Full Stack Engineer

Clipboard is a Sydney-based Aussie startup that is helping schools, students and parents get much more out of their extracurricular activities. We’re looking for a mid-level full stack web developer to play a key role in taking the Clipboard product, as well as their career, to the next level.

About Us

At Clipboard, our vision is that every student worldwide 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 1000s 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+!

The Clipboard product is a progressive web app, built with technologies like Angular, Node.js and Postgres. We’re a product and customer-first company and are super passionate about building awesome experiences that people love.
