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, including New York City, Miami-Dade, Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, and eight departments of education. Schools use Panorama to improve student outcomes by using data, from helping teachers hone their practice, to engaging with families, and to build school culture.

Panorama's Client Success team partners with hundreds of school districts and charter networks to take them from "We just signed up for Panorama" to "Panorama helps us improve education for our students in many important ways." With a near perfect renewal rate, excellent customer satisfaction, and strong year-over-year account growth our team has set a high bar. Our largest clients want hands-on strategic support bringing Panorama’s product to their districts. That’s where our Strategic Engagements team comes in.

About the Role:  

As a Strategic Engagements Account Director, you play a central role on the Client Success team as you are responsible for renewing Panorama’s key accounts and helping drive revenue growth across your portfolio. Your primary responsibilities include retaining business, sourcing upsell, and developing relationships with our most strategic, sophisticated clients. These educators operate in complex and political environments that are responsible for educating hundreds of thousands of children. You must thrive in novel, high-stakes, high-complexity situations, using diplomacy and precision, with both attention to detail and big-picture thinking. You will work closely with client buyers and decision-makers including superintendents of school districts, leaders of charter management organizations, and state education leaders to ensure that Panorama’s value is being articulated, ultimately leading to successful retention and growth across your accounts.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to Panorama’s excellent renewal rate by owning renewals across a portfolio of 10-15 of Panorama’s highest revenue accounts (including renewals tied to RFPs, school board approvals, and disparate funding sources). This entails understanding budget cycles and contract options preferred by our clients, including the structure of license fees and timing of renewals.
  • Increase footprint and business with existing clients, discovering and maturing opportunities to grow Panorama’s business.
  • Develop account plans and monitor overall account health across your portfolio.
  • Collaborate closely with a Strategic Engagements Manager and Implementation Lead to provide outstanding relationship management and function as a strategic partner for a portfolio of Panorama’s highest revenue clients.
  • Travel approximately 25% of the time to facilitate planning meetings, renewal conversations, client health interventions, and support trainings.

What We’re Looking For:

Excellent account management skills

  • At least 3 years of experience in renewal-oriented account management; demonstrated track record of renewing accounts, upselling accounts, and building client relationships.
  • Proven ability at developing account plans, leading strategy for client health interventions, and managing complex renewal cycles.
  • Proven ability to manage a portfolio of 10-15 high revenue accounts, prioritizing accounts as necessary and communicating across external stakeholder groups with competing priorities.
  • Ability to develop strong relationships at the leadership levels of complex organizations.
  • Excellent listening, negotiation and presentation skills.

Thrives in fast-paced, team-oriented, cross-functional settings

  • Proven ability to work cross-functionally with project management and sales teams to retain business and drive expansion.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity; flexibility with potential role changes as team grows.
  • Ability to maintain high-quality work and commitments while traveling.

Experience expertly navigating large organizations

  • At least 5 years of professional experience working with large, complex organizations; demonstrated savviness about the inner-workings and politics of decision making.
  • Outstanding ability to communicate, present and influence credibly and effectively at all levels of large organizations, in particular with senior executive leaders, superintendents, and board members.
  • Passion for and commitment to using data to improve student outcomes, particularly addressing issues of equity and access.

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.
