: Director of Client Engagement (schools and districts below 5,000 students)

About Panorama:

Panorama Education, based in Boston, is a fast-growing technology startup focused on radically improving education. Today, 900 school systems serving ten million students have adopted the Panorama platform as paying customers including the entire states of Iowa and Hawaii as well as large districts like New York City, San Francisco, and Dallas. 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. Panoramas platform also helps educators collect data about non-academic factors that are key to each childs success in school and in life, such as social-emotional skills, safety, teacher-student relationships, and family engagement. Panorama has raised $45 million from Emerson Collective, YCombinator, Spark Capital, Owl Ventures, SoftTech, and others.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead, inspire, and manage the team of Client Success Managers (CSMs) serving districts and schools with fewer than 5,000 students
  • Set the short term and long-term strategy for the team to grow Client Engagement (as a proxy for value and impact) across our Client Base of both small districts and single schools working with Panorama
  • Move the client base in this segment from CSM-drive tools to client-driven tools over time

  • Prioritize Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in building systems and processes internally and externally
  • Design, track, and grow performance metrics at individual and team levels

  • Facilitate, organize and lead collaborative professional development opportunities and documentation to build skills among CSMs
  • Set goals for client engagement,  scale the workload of team, track progress and iterate to support continuous improvement across the team
  • Deeply understand our products, how they come together, and work to grow engagement across each of them
  • Aggressively and creatively seek ways to scale (through product, client support, service delivery, changes in our delivery model, alternative pricing proposals, etc.)
  • Grow and develop the management team, continuously solve problems, prioritize Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and support and grow members of their teams
  • Mediate and problem-solve escalated conflicts with client base

What Were Looking For:

Panorama Education is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive company because we serve students, educators and families from tremendously diverse backgrounds and identities across the country; weve seen how our product and impact are strengthened the more we reflect that diversity. In addition, we have found (and we believe the research) that diverse teams are higher-performing, and we embrace the varied perspectives that our team members share with each other. As such, we are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

I love working at Panorama Education because... I get to see the human side of engineering work. We're solving hard technical problems, but not to show more ads to people who don't want them—we're solving hard problems to make people's lives better. Period. Getting to talk to educators and see the impact of the work we do is what gets me excited for work every single day.

I love working at Panorama Education because... we truly lead with our mission. When we consider a new feature for a product, we do not ask, "Will this lead more people to buy our product?" We ask, "Will this help educators improve students' outcomes?"
