Head of Tech Recruiting

| Greater Boston Area

About Panorama: 

Panorama Education, based in Boston, is a fast-growing technology startup focused on radically improving education. Today, 900 school systems serving nine million students have adopted the Panorama platform as paying customers, including New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, Dallas, and Nashville. School systems turn to Panorama to ensure that each child is getting the support they need, so that more students succeed in school, graduate, and go on to college. Panorama helps educators monitor how students are doing across academics, attendance, behavior, and college readiness, and then coordinate action to support each child. Panorama’s platform also helps educators collect data about non-academic factors that are key to each child’s success in school and in life, such as social-emotional skills, safety, teacher-student relationships, and family engagement. Panorama has raised $32 million from Emerson Collective, YCombinator, Spark Capital, Owl Ventures, SoftTech, and Mark Zuckerberg.

We work really hard because we care deeply about what we do and who we do it for. Our rich diversity allows for collaboration with people from all walks of life to build something meaningful and impactful for our future.

Jen

Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

My days revolve around our mission of being the best part of our client’s day. Collaboratively working with other engineers and Client Success teammates to problem solve, build new tools, integrate/onboard new clients, and support the needs of existing clients are just a start.

Jahvon

Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Being eager, highly adaptive, dependable, and believing that our work is significant. For example, we’ve prioritized schools visits this year. As an engineer, I saw our product in a whole new light when I watched teachers actually interact with it as a normal part of their day. This allows us to carefully and thoughtfully craft our product.

Jemma

Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We empower each team member to build plans to turn strategy into reality. We believe that leveraging everyone’s unique skills and experiences will yield the best possible outcomes for our clients and cultivate an environment of teaching & learning.

Katie

CFO

What projects are you most excited about?

I am excited about elevating equity and inclusion as we support educators and school leaders in creating environments where all students thrive. For the Teaching & Learning team, we try to focus on designing learning experiences and resources that help partners navigate and process data to learn the ways that students experience school differently.
