Jupiter is the innovation leader in ed tech. We were the first to develop an all-in-one Learning Platform and Student Information System, which we built from the ground up as a web-hosted service back when most competitors were retrofitting their old standalone software. We developed all our features in-house, not acquired from third parties, so all modules share the same database and have a consistent user experience.
Founded in 2004, we now serve 4 million students in 50 states. We have been profitable since 2006, and we are completely self-funded, with no investors, so our undivided focus is to develop the best solution for schools.
Our founder and most employees are former teachers, so education is at the heart of what we do, and it is why schools find Jupiter so intuitive and our support so insightful. Our mission is to:
Our founder and CEO is David Hundsness, a former middle/high school teacher in Silicon Valley. As a young teacher he was an early adopter of electronic gradebooks, but over the years he found all the gradebooks were still clunky and tedious. So in the summer of 2004 he decided to develop his own. “At first I was just making the gradebook for myself,” says Hundsness, “but within a few days I realized all teachers could use something like this.” He launched the gradebook as SnapGrades, which teachers loved enthusiastically, propelling it to the #1 web-based gradebook by 2009. By 2013 we had developed the SIS and Learning Platform, and rebranded as Jupiter. In 2018 we modernized the entire user interface and back end, and we are continuously advancing new features.
