DevOps Engineer

 Tech    Full-time

Do you have a passion for automation, building high performance technology, and sweating the details? At Civis Analytics, we're building a data science platform, making cutting-edge machine learning and predictive modeling techniques available to a broad audience. The DevOps team delivers, maintains, and evolves the infrastructure that makes all of this possible.

We are looking for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds with demonstrated quantitative and problem-solving skills. We value creativity, hard work, and on-the-job-excellence. We offer competitive compensation and benefits packages. In compliance with federal law, all persons hired will be required to verify their identity and eligibility to work in the United States.

What's great about being an engineer at Civis Analytics?
Your code will make the world a better place. Our engineers don’t just experience the thrill of solving interesting problems, they also have the satisfaction of knowing that their work makes a difference in the world. We don’t shy away from helping companies beef up their bottom line, but we also devote significant resources to projects that do good.

You will learn. Our engineers, data scientists and analysts are not only the best and brightest in their fields, but are also eager to teach and learn from you. We send our engineers to conferences and workshops, and provide resources to grow professionally. Need software, a book, or AWS instance to help you with your work? Consider it done.

We trust our engineers. One of the perks of working with the best 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 deliverables, but we make a point of giving creativity the room and respect it deserves.

Your voice can change the direction of a project. We strongly encourage our engineers to participate in the brainstorming and prioritization process. We don't want people that mindlessly program. 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 are smart, fun, and a little bit weird. Does this sound like you?

Senior Security Engineer

 Operations    Full-time

Are you a self-starter? Do you want to work where you can make an immediate impact? Civis Analytics is looking for a Senior Security Engineer to join our team!

Civis Analytics was born on the campaign trail, with CEO Dan Wagner and our founding members spearheading the 2012 Obama for America analytics team. Since then, our DC and Chicago teams have been building software and growing rapidly among a steadily developing client base in education, energy, government, healthcare, media, nonprofits, and politics. It’s our mission to empower organizations to find truth and guide actions that will change their world for the better.

At Civis, we take protecting data seriously and are looking for a security engineer with security and compliance expertise. As a Senior Security Engineer, you will work with our General Counsel and team of DevOps Engineers on the constant stream of new products and technologies used to support our cloud platform.

You will design big picture security strategy while laying out the details of an implementation plan. You understand the constant need to balance the benefits of incremental security measures with the potential burdens on the business. You will proactively find and fix security problems, monitor our networks utilizing security tools such as SIEM and next-gen endpoint protection, and prioritize efforts based on risk.  You’ll join our Chicago-based team, closely collaborating with engineers, data scientists, IT, and our client success team.

What's great about being an engineer at Civis? We believe in ownership of our work and continuous learning, and we set up our team to reinforce those values.

We trust engineers from all over our team to pick the right architecture, library, or framework for the job at hand. Civis security engineers set the strategic vision for our compliance plan in addition to the day-to-day details, and they work directly with the legal and sales teams to come up with novel ways move the business forward while keeping our systems secure.

We want you to never stop learning. Everyone has a mentor from day one and tracks their personal development alongside their technical deliverables. On the security engineering team, you’ll be joining a small core of infrastructure engineers and will help steer the course of our operations.  You’ll work with compliance frameworks such as SSAE16, HIPAA, FERPA, and FedRAMP, perform routine vulnerability testing of our corporate office and AWS networks, help manage third-party penetration tests, and pretty much work with every AWS service available (seriously).  Valuing continuous learning means recognizing that our strongest contributors stand out for their capabilities and not their credentials.

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