Clever hires Apple exec as vice president of engineering

Clever, a single sign-on platform for K-12 education, has hired Eric Krugler to be the company's vice president of engineering. He comes to Clever from Apple where he was senior director of engineering for the iCloud engineering team.

Krugler, a 16-year veteran of Apple, was a founding member of the iCloud leadership team, eventually overseeing the iCloud engineering organization. His team scaled the platform to support hundreds of millions of iCloud users with services for applications like iCloud Photos, iMessage, and more; and the team developed the CloudKit Developer platform, a toolkit used by internal and external developers to build iCloud applications quickly.

Over half of U.S. K-12 schools now use Clever to simplify and secure logins for the thousands of learning applications used by students and teachers, according to Tyler Bosmeny, CEO and co-founder. Krugler will grow the Clever engineering team “to introduce innovations on the platform, scale for growing engagement between thousands of schools and applications, and continue to build a highly available and secure service,” he adds.

More than 50% of U.S. K-12 schools use Clever to deploy software applications and provide a secure, personalized learning experience for teachers and students.
