Why join us?
  • We've processed over $55B in transaction volume with a team of under 200 people, and we are close to having shipped one million devices; this number is expected to grow massively in the next 2 years!

  • We are already profitable and successful, yet we're just beginning a phase of explosive growth as we prepare to enter multiple international markets.

  • We're solving problems for real-world people (merchants and consumers), and you will be able to see your code & your contribution at work in hundreds of thousands of businesses - and be able to hear, in person, how people love the product that YOU built.


Engineering at Clover
Engineering team and processes

We're an Agile-based engineering team. We break our team down into squads that are composed of multiple Software Engineers, a Product Manager, Designer, QA Engineers and other stakeholders who may be assembled to focus on a specific product or feature. We operate in 2-week sprints, and engineers are often participants in more than one squad. You'll get to see many facets of our product and business, and have an active hand in making each part a success.

Technical Challenges

1) We deal with a lot of data synchronization and concurrency challenges. For example, a customer may interact with multiple devices in a store as they modify an order (e.g. you could be in Chipotle at the start of a line and enter one order, then update this once you reach the end on a different Clover device).

2) We're scaling up our system quickly from supporting 100,000+ customers to over a million.

3) We're launching in other countries and in other languages, and adapting to the complexities of payment systems on different continents.

4) We've evolved into serving large venues & business, and are facing the scaling challenges of dealing with many thousands of transactions per second.

5) We're supporting a robust and growing App Market with a large network of third-party developers.

Projects you might work on
  • We may have the largest percona database in the world (11+ TB), and we are currently working on sharding it.

  • We are rewriting our collection of our web apps in React and TypeScript. We are using React Static to build fast and dynamic static sites for our Help Center.

  • We are applying the concepts of Clean Architecture, Google's Architecture Components, and RxJava to revitalize 50+ android apps that we built.

Working at Clover

We're open, transparent and collaborative. We value your opinions and we trust our coworkers. We strive to create an environment that is a comfortable & happy place to work, and we give you the support structure to help reduce any worries apart from your job (catered daily lunches & dinners, unlimited vacation, flexible schedules, transportation, beverages & snacks, entertainment area and truly awesome coffee bar, and the support of full committed and ethical leadership).

Generous Vacation

Unlimited vacation, and we let you decide when you need to take a break and recharge. We do enforce it (we'll kick you out of the building!), as we know that highly committed individuals tend to default to less vacation rather than more.

Free Food

Lunches are curated & catered every day, and you have multiple restaurants to choose from. We happily handle all dietary preferences (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free etc.). In addition, we serve gourmet buffet-style dinners 4 nights per week (none on Friday). Our office has unlimited beverages and snacks.

Gym/Fitness

Local gyms give discounts through PerkSpot, but we also have in-house bodysculpting classes 2x/week!

Travel

With offices in Sunnyvale, Colorado Springs, Atlanta and NYC, you will have an opportunity to experience it all - if you want. In addition, we're expanding globally and there are numerous opportunities for international travel.

Beautiful Office

We work in a new net-zero energy office. Automatic tinting windows, a huge living Green Wall, areas of soft seating & collaborative spaces, and top-tier ergonomic, powered stand-up desks all contribute to an environment of positive energy and comfort.

Pet Friendly

We have comfortable outside patio areas for our canine friends, and more unique pets are welcome on a case by case basis.

Company Retreats

Offsites, hackathons, holiday parties, birthday parties, team lunches & outings, and other adventures are all part of life at Clover.

Workshops/Conferences

We support, encourage and pay for our team to attend any professional conferences or courses that advance your skills, help you develop as a professional, or contribute to Clover's brand and business.

Maternal/Paternal Leave

We fully support moms and dads in the workplace, offering 12 weeks fully paid leave as well as a modern and comfortable Moms' Room onsite.

Flexible Hours

We allow great flexibility to accommodate our commuters & other special circumstances. Part of our philosophy of stocking the company with full breakfast, lunch and dinner options is to allow you to set your schedule as you see fit. Plus, everyone needs to work from home now and then.

Health Insurance

We offer several health plan options, and Clover pays 100% of the health premiums for all our employees and their dependents. In addition, if you choose a health plan with an HSA, we fund it for you to the annual maximum - not a penny comes from you, this is support directly from Clover.

Team Activities

As mentioned above, we do company offsites, hackathons, holiday parties, birthday parties, team lunches & outings, and other activities. We have a robust social community that involves various after-work sports, game nights, and movie nights on our huge screen.

Transportation

We subsidize your Caltrain pass, and provide Lyft to & from your destination at each end.

Work from Home

We see that the modern world is truly work-life integration, and understand that there can be any number of reasons that you would need to work from home either regularly or on occasion. While we have no official policy, we strive to accommodate employees as needed.

Relocation

We're committed to relocating the right people to work here. We want the best, and we'll do what it takes to get the right people from their current location to a comfortable living arrangement here in CA.
