What protocol do the major Monero pool sites use to communicate with workers?

I've been trying to understand how pools and workers work in some depth. In the Monero world, is there a standard protocol that the major pools, like Nanopool (https://nanopool.org/) use to communicate with their workers? Although they recommend teh software (Claymore) to use, I'm more curious about the under the hood stuff. I know Bitcoin pools use Stratum, which is fairly well documented, but I would like to know more about the Monero pools.

Thanks, -
