Panopta is a SaaS monitoring platform that helps companies monitor their infrastructure from every angle - external, on-server, and behind the firewall. We've been able to remain small and nimble while scaling our product to meet the needs of any customer and environment. We recently raised a round of funding and are looking to accelerate our growth. We’re also a pretty nerdy group.

Our office is located in the Loop, within walking distance of the CTA and both Metra terminations. We are still planning our office re-opening strategy after Covid-19, but we expect a mix of working from home and working in the office will be required.
