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.
