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. 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 $45 million from Emerson Collective, YCombinator, Spark Capital, Owl Ventures, Uncork, and others.

Our engineers are changing history way beyond git rebase -i. The engineering team is involved in every step of the product cycle, working closely with Panorama’s many other teams and our users to brainstorm and build solutions to education’s toughest problems. Sure, we already have strong technical chops, but we constantly challenge ourselves to learn and grow. From lunchtime guest talks, book clubs, to hackathons, and open-source projects (both in the office and outside it), we try to improve ourselves as we help schools around the world do the same.

About the Team and Role:

In this role, you will:

  • Lead a team of 3-6 full-stack engineers focused on delivering solutions to fascinating and challenging problems, for example:
    • Designing reporting architectures that allow exploring a whole state's worth of student academic data to determine how they can best support each and every school system.
    • Building intuitive user workflows to allow educators to quickly identify at-risk students and easily set up plans for intervention across every year of a student's education.
    • Creating novel data visualizations that uncover insights from school districts’ dizzying variety of data sets.
  • Help to hire, onboard, and grow engineers, both on your team and in supporting your peer engineering managers.
  • Serve as a coach, teacher, and mentor with a laser focus on helping engineers grow and learn on a daily and weekly basis. Continuous improvement and professional growth for all Panorama team members is an extremely important part of our culture and success.
  • Guide your team to build systems that will scale to the next level of growth.
  • Partner cross-functionally with your product, design, and other functional team peers to make sure that we are delivering the best value for our clients and the educators we serve.
  • Jump in to help the team by facilitating a design session, organizing the next sprint, clarifying the technical solutions across teams, or even writing, testing, reviewing, debugging, deploying, and occasionally being frustrated by code.

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has experience as an engineering manager helping teams to deliver products and achieve ambitious team goals.
  • Thrives on collaborating and working side-by-side with engineers, product managers, and designers to collectively figure out what's next.
  • Has an outstanding ability to communicate and influence both within their team and throughout the company. (Could even enjoy writing on our engineering blog!)
  • Believes that one of the greatest levers for their team's success is enabling the growth of every one on their team
  • Is comfortable with the challenges of a rapidly growing startup, and the continuous improvement needed to balance existing systems and processes with the need to modify them to meet the needs of the business.
  • Has hands-on coding skills and significant experience with web app development and deployment -- we want you to know what it’s like to be an engineer, even if that's not where you spend most of your time these days.

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.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
