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.

About The Role

As Chief of Staff to the CEO, you will play a key role in partnering with our CEO and Co-Founder to scale Panorama over the coming years. We are a mission-driven, Series C stage company serving 1 in 4 U.S. students with a team of ~400 based across the country and $105M raised from leading investors. Over the coming years, we expect to grow significantly in terms of impact, students served, product suite, team, and revenue. As Chief of Staff, your mission will be to support the CEO and the CEO’s key initiatives across the company, increasing the CEO’s effectiveness and leverage, and ultimately helping Panorama achieve its mission, vision, and goals. We see the Chief of Staff role as a meaningful career path (not an 18 month rotation), and our ideal candidate is excited for the opportunity to help build Panorama as a long-term member of the CEO’s core team.

You Will

  • Enable the CEO, serve as program manager for CEO goals, and manage CEO-owned operating rhythms (e.g., organizational changes, board member recruiting, quarterly executive team offsite content, decision-making frameworks, planning client visits, preparing for meetings, quarterly investor updates)
  • Lead special projects for the CEO that don’t fit neatly within our current org chart (e.g., creating a decision-making model for Panorama, setting up a government affairs program, researching a strategy idea, planning for a new department)
  • Monitor and support strategic priorities across Panorama, and “roll up your sleeves” where necessary to support and partner with internal teams (e.g., helping a team solve a key business problem)
  • Prepare presentations, talking points, and communications on behalf of the CEO
  • Represent the CEO internally and externally
  • Serve as an advisor and sounding board to the CEO
  • Help the CEO manage priorities and allocate time effectively, in partnership with the CEO’s executive assistant

Our Ideal Candidate

  • 5-15+ years of experience in a leadership, operations, product, strategy, or similar role at a high growth technology company, as a management consultant, and/or as a chief of staff or similar role
  • Ability to independently lead strategic projects and own the process of idea to execution - you’re also great at “figuring it out” when presented with a problem or project we haven’t tackled before
  • Excellent cross-functional collaborator with ability to work on behalf of the CEO across the organization and drive change through influence over authority
  • Strategic thinker with strong grasp of business fundamentals, problem-solving skills, and ability to conduct research and synthesize learnings (e.g., different ways that other companies approach a certain issue)
  • Strong project/program management skills, highly-organized with high attention to detail, strong executor (you are great at ensuring the trains run on time)
  • Process-minded with ability to create, improve, and maintain repeatable processes that enable scale
  • Data analysis and modeling abilities (basic or advanced)
  • Skilled at anticipating issues and able to see around corners for CEO
  • Good judgment, impeccable ethics, and discretion in handling sensitive information
  • Fast-learning, humble, high growth mindset, and thrives in a fast-paced, high-growth environment
  • Move very quickly and welcomes ambiguity
  • Passionate about education and improving outcomes for students.
  • Committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
  • MBA or commensurate business experience

Panorama excitedly hosts two in-person "all team meetings" a year. All Panoramians attend and travel/hotels are provided. (Paused due to Covid)

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.
