At Junyo, we believe that every student is different. That’s why we are helping schools and teachers measure student learning, analyze and understand the results, and make informed decisions to prepare students to succeed.
We are data hungry, and know that increasing the number and quality of data samples produces stronger and richer insights. We integrate, instrument, measure, and assess to produce high quality, fine-grained, and real-time data. We analyze the data, visualize results, and provide insights to make the real meaning apparent and actionable. We strive for a user experience that is easy, enjoyable, and requires no training. Intelligent insights, recommendations, and visualizations empower people to make smart decisions that help students learn more every day.
We partner with schools, content providers, and online learning providers that are eager to use data to tune their products and services to get better results. We’re well funded, we’re in it for the long term and we are committed to doing this right.
We are a fun, experienced team who believe that the best work is done by people who are passionate, committed and focused but understand the importance of work-life balance. Our offices are conveniently located amongst the restaurants and coffee shops of downtown Palo Alto within easy access of Cal Train, 101 and the Dumbarton Bridge.
