Clover – Why Work With Us?

Team Building and Values Exercise

The Clover teams work on some of the most complex financial systems in the industry, that require state-of-the-art technology, 24x7 uptime and reliability, and process tens of millions of transactions a day.

Clover is looking for people with bold ideas and the energy to make them happen. People who are natural problem solvers, creative thinkers, and who long since crushed that box you're supposed to think outside of fit with Clover best.


So what's it like to work at Clover? You'll be immersed in a fast-paced, challenging environment. As part of a small team, you'll carry greater weight, and have more direct impact, than in larger corporate environments. We believe in full, cross-disciplinary integration—for our products and systems as well as our people. You'll never be isolated in a single task or project no other team cares about.

Diwali Celebration 2019

Our culture is transparent, open and honest.  If something is not working, we address it, and work to make it better! We’re are not resistant to change in the slightest.   

Clover is continually working towards fostering and inclusive environment.  Clover established a women in tech initiative this past summer, culminating in the Girl Geek Dinner.  We invite D&I experts to speak and have open Q&As. We celebrate our diversity by celebrating a wide variety of holidays - essentially if employees want it - we try to make it happen! We celebrated our second Diwali together this year, including an amazing dance choreographed by our own employees.    

Clover holds a 10 week internship program each summer, and various internship opportunities throughout the year. Most employees favorite perk is the catered lunch and dinners, and SNACKS.  Many foodies live at Clover. Clover works to bring fun perks to our employees. One of our engineer managers started a twice weekly HIIT class after work. We also love various foosball tournaments and ad hoc pool matches.  


Clover employees say we offer a great work/life mix.  We know when we have to turn it up to hit a release or burn the midnight oil to fix a bug that impacts our customers but we try to balance everything.  We are an empathic culture that takes into account the whole person. We have generous health and wellness packages based by location and we don’t have a traditional PTO policy, instead Clover offers a flexible time off, that balances the business and personal needs.

We want to get to know you.  But we don't expect that can happen in two hurried phone calls, and a nerve wracking 8 hour interview.  Clover uses research backed, behavioral based assessments to ensure people are working in roles that amplify their natural abilites.  We not only want high-performers, but high-perfomers who are happy and working in a healthy manner!  Our process differs by department, but generally we follow this track: 

  • Application and Behavioral Assessment (quick & painless, we promise!)
  • Introduction Call: Call with our recruitment team to introduce you to Clover
    • Goal: How does our mission and style mesh with your interests? 
  • Hiring Manager Call: Call with the manager you'd be working under 
    • Goal: Are you both in harmony - you could envision working alongside one another? 
  • Visit to Clover and Panel Interview: Onsite interview with 3-6 members of your team - generally including lunch if you're into free food!
  • Offer: If you're excited to be a part of the team and there's a match, then an offer can be expected within 1-2 weeks

Our interviews are mostly behvioral based questions with some technical challenges thrown in depending on the role.  If you want to best prepare, we suggest taking the bullets of the job description and preparing how you've best accomplished that in the past.  If you haven't done it yet - no worries - let us know how'd you tackle it! 

If any assistance or accomodation is needed for any part of the process, we're ready to make the process work for you!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Clover (Mountain View, CA) in July 2015.


    I found the company through a current employee, who was very friendly and referred me for a role. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there.

    First of all, the HR woman is awful. The process—which dragged on for months—remained opaque throughout. The company never explained its hiring procedure, and for much of the time I did not know which position I was being considered for or if the process had ended. Furthermore, the HR woman proved unresponsive and inconsiderate, not bothering to answer my questions until I had asked multiple times and changing schedules on a whim. More than once she emailed me asking if I had availability at a later date. I would block off that entire morning or afternoon and not hear back until the night before, when she would ask my availability at another date—she seemed to have no regard for my schedule or my time.

    I had two phone interviews, the first of which was more or less standard while the second was quite enjoyable. My interviewer and I hit it off, and the subject matter brought a refreshing twist to the typical phone screen.

    The onsite date proved a different story. While my first interviewer was pleasant enough, the second explained that all he cared about was whether I knew Java—everything else was unimportant. As any engineer knows, this is the least significant skill and arguably the worst indicator of ability. My final interviewer sealed the deal with remarkable condescension. At times I had difficulty speaking through his incessant interruptions.

    While I appreciate the kind employee who referred me, my time with Clover left a strong distaste. If the company wants to attract the best talent, HR and recruiting need to respect their candidates.
