About Panorama:
Panorama is a fast-growing national technology company focused on radically improving education. More than 1,500 school systems serving 15 million students across all 50 states have adopted our platform to understand students’ academic and social-emotional strengths and to identify those in need of additional support. School systems turn to our suite of tools to ensure that every child gets the support they need, including school climate and social-emotional learning surveys, tiered intervention planning, and professional development.

Panoramians can choose to work fully remote anywhere within the Continental United States, in-person from our Boston/San Francisco offices, or a hybrid option.

An important part of Panorama’s impact and growth to date has been our Teaching and Learning team. Teaching and Learning team members inspire and equip leaders and educators to support students holistically through professional learning, leading hundreds of sessions per year and achieving highly favorable reviews from leaders and educators. In addition, the Teaching & Learning team also builds and maintains documentation and on-demand learning to support educators and leaders to use Panorama in their daily work. 

Over years of delivering workshops to caring adults within our longest standing partnership, the objectives and format of our support grew to include more advising services than strictly workshop facilitation. We launched a dedicated Strategic Advising practice on the Teaching and Learning team in 2019 and have since formalized these service offerings as well as our staffing in order to attract, hire, retain and develop a team of advisors. As we head into 2022, the Strategic Advising practice and team has grown to a point where we are in need of more people management and practice leadership. The plan is for the Team Lead, Strategic Advising role to be a dedicated people manager, though it will start as a “player-coach” role, i.e. it will involve both maintaining a small portfolio of advising clients as well as managing a few advisors.


Key Responsibilities: 

  • Establish new and refine existing systems on the Strategic Advising practice that contribute to an inclusive culture of collective ownership, diversity of background, thinking and design, agency, solutions-orientation, outcome-orientation and learning-orientation across the practice.
  • Manage a team of Professional Learning Directors and Professional Learning Managers who serve clients in the capacity of “Strategic Advisor”, including supporting them to scope PD pathways, set and manage expectations internally and externally, set and backwards plan from ambitious, measurable and achievable partner goals within their locus of control and influence. 
  • Scope and deliver advising services to a small number of advising clients.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with Product, Research, Outreach, Account Management, Marketing, and Client Success in order to ensure insights and practices that are developed and facilitated among advising clients are incorporated into our products and services.
  • Contribute to a culture of learning and collaboration among other people managers on Teaching and Learning.

What We’re Looking For:

  • 10+ years of experience in education, including experience managing and coaching educators or consultants as well as consulting with school systems. 
  • Demonstrated ability to build internal knowledge and skills that empowers others to achieve excellence 
  • Demonstrated ability to contribute to a strong, positive, and results-driven culture of collaboration and partnership cross-functionally
  • Demonstrated ability to design and facilitate professional development pathways that align to research-based principles of trauma-informed facilitation practices and adult learning
  • Demonstrated ability to prioritize and make continuous improvements to support the accessibility and cultural responsiveness of curriculum through innovation and inclusivity-focused design principles
  • Experience and demonstrated effectiveness advancing equity and inclusion internally and with clients by meeting individuals and teams where they are on their journey, especially across lines of identity-based and cultural differences and in light of complex and challenging socio-political contexts
  • Willingness to adapt some content and language based on the audience, and to ensure materials resonate with Panorama’s nationally distributed, diverse base of users
  • Demonstrated track record of continuously improving systems and processes, and ability to create new systems that empower teams and increase effectiveness
  • Excellent project management skills demonstrated through the successful leadership of concurrent projects and/or initiatives
  • Demonstrated ability to communicate information and processes effectively and clearly in writing and through the creation of asynchronous resources 
  • Comfortable with ambiguity; can build a vision without perfect information and lead projects through change 
  • Drive to continue to learn more about school districts, district leaders, and educators, the challenges they face, and how Panorama can help support them

Panorama excitedly hosts two in-person "all team meetings" a year. All Panoramians attend and travel/hotels are provided. 

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; we’ve 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. Panorama also has a policy on maintaining a drug-free workplace.

An Insider's view of Panorama Education

What's something quirky about your company?

Many of us here use our old elementary or middle school pictures as our Slack picture or profile picture. I think this says a lot about who we are as a team, our culture and what makes us so unique. We’re a group of many former educators and folks who are passionate about holistically supporting students across the country.

Jony

Team Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

The biggest factors that initially piqued my interest in Panorama are the same ones that make me excited to stick around for years to come - the opportunity to work at a growing company with big ideas and ambitious goals, working alongside great colleagues and being apart of a culture that values work-life balance and caring about people.

Vinu

Outreach Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I found Panorama's interviews to focus more on personality and drive. Instead of an investigative approach into ones' technical abilities, they give opportunities for candidates to show their strengths in a comfortable setting. My technical interview went really well, but my communication and empathy skills really helped distinguish me.

Corey

Senior Software 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

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

Everything we do is for students. That’s the thing I loved about Panorama immediately. It gave me that sort of pit in the stomach feeling that I really wanted to work here. We help support students and enable district administrators to make their students successful. We live our mission every single day, and it’s threaded into everything I do.
