About the Role:

An important part of how Panorama serves some of our largest and most complex clients is through the development of highly polished, customized resources and learning experiences. The purpose of these resources can range from the communication of key information or the development of educator-facing learning experiences that advance a community-specific strategy for rolling out Panorama to key users and stakeholders. We are seeking an experienced instructional design consultant with technical writing, design, and videography skills to produce deliverables for these strategic projects that will complement our clients’ rollout and implementation of Panorama. 

Key Responsibilities: 

  • Design highly polished and customized learning experiences and resources for Panorama end users in some of the largest and most complex school systems in the United States
  • Clearly communicate product functionality and exemplar use cases through the development of video tutorials, slides, and written documentation
  • Build resources or learning experiences that reflect district- or community-specific goals and/or visions for implementing Panorama in support of key initiatives
  • Occasionally consult directly with Panorama clients or internal stakeholders to ensure that resources are aligned to client needs, and engage in feedback cycles and iteration on content to ensure it meets client needs

 

What We’re Looking For:

  • At least 2 years of full-time working experience in K-12 education (either within a school/district or within an education-focused organization)
  • Demonstrated success developing resources and learning experiences that support end users to navigate and derive value from software that they use in their daily work or life
  • At least 3 years of experience designing and creating customer-facing product education, documentation, training, or support assets, preferably within a SaaS-based environment
  • Excellent writing and content creation skills including the ability to explain product functionality and value to a broad audience via text, image, video, etc.
  • Experience collaborating closely with product specialists, subject matter experts and users to understand needs - ideally in a SaaS product environment
  • Proficiency with and ideally access to Camtasia, Final Cut Pro or other video editing software
  • Working knowledge of graphic design principles
  • Demonstrated experience in script-writing, editing and proofreading. Strong copy editing and attention to detail skills, making text easy to read and act upon.
  • Demonstrated effectiveness advancing equity through resource design and creation
  • Ability to learn and become intimately familiar with new technologies 
  • Passionate about a customer-centric approach to learning and design, with a specific emphasis on adult learning

As such, we are an Equal Opportunity Employer. Panorama also has a policy on maintaining a drug-free workplace.
