Why work at Civis?

What’s so great about working at Civis?  Let us answer that for you.

Your work will make the world a better place. Our team doesn’t just experience the thrill of solving interesting problems; they have the satisfaction of knowing that their work makes a difference in the world. We help our clients grow, but we also devote significant resources to projects that do good.

You will learn. Your coworkers (Software Engineers, Data Scientists and Analysts alike) will not only be the best and brightest in their fields, but are also eager to teach and learn from 
you. We send our staff to conferences and workshops they're interested in. Need software, a book, or something else to help you with your work? Consider it done.

Your work will be diverse. It is not like we have just one or two problems we're trying to solve over here. Every day we're learning and working on new, cutting edge problems at the intersection of technology, data science, and practical application.

We trust our staff. One of the perks of working with the best and brightest is that you're given the trust you deserve. Are you interested in pursuing a new way of solving an old problem? Nice -- give it a shot. Yes, you will still have a manager and deliverable, but we make a point to giving creativity the room and respect it deserves.

Your voice can change the direction of a project. We strongly encourage our team to participate in the brainstorming and prioritization process. We don't want people that will mindlessly analyze and program the projects we have. We want your perspective and experience. Challenge our assumptions, make us rethink our strategy, and help us improve our solutions. Your expertise will be a critical part of our success and you'll be recognized for your contributions.

We love our hometowns. Whether you’re based out of our Chicago headquarters or our DC office, we are passionate about our home cities. We bike avidly in both and can make good cases for each town having the best pizza (no, really). If you’re worried about moving away from the ocean, let us introduce you to Lake Michigan. If your perfect knowledge of West Wing trivia is going to waste, we’ve got a home for you in Dupont Circle.

Casual Dress:  We clean up nice but sweatshirts are de rigueur.

We are smart, fun, and a little bit weird. Does this sound like you?
