Account Director Large Districts

Role can be fully remote or based in our Boston office

About Panorama: 

Panorama Education, based in Boston, is a fast-growing technology startup focused on radically improving education. Today, more than 1,500 school systems serving ten million students have adopted the  Panorama platform, including New York City, Miami-Dade, Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, and 13 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 Account Management 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 large districts want support and expertise bringing Panorama’s product to their districts and demonstrating maximum value over time. That’s where our Account Management team comes in. 

About the Role:  

You must thrive in novel, high-stakes situations that require creativity and big-picture thinking. You will work closely with client buyers and decision-makers including superintendents of school districts and leaders of charter management organizations to ensure that Panorama’s value is being articulated and realized, ultimately leading to successful retention and growth across your accounts.

Key Responsibilities

  • Own the renewal cycle and retain clients across a portfolio of 25-50 of Panorama’s large districts (as measured by renewal rate). This includes renewals tied to school board approvals and disparate funding sources, along with understanding budget cycles and contract options preferred by our clients, including the structure of license fees and the 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 an Outreach Director and Customer Success Manager to grow Panorama’s footprint and provide outstanding relationship management, functioning as a strategic partner for a portfolio of Panorama’s larger revenue clients.
  • When feasible, travel approximately 25% of the time to facilitate planning meetings, renewal conversations, client health interventions, and support training.
