One of my favorite parts about Civis is the culture of learning—talking about academic papers is encouraged as well as sharing weird facts about things people are interested in. I also love the people at Civis because they genuinely care about each other and also serving the wider world."
At Civis, I get to use my interest and abilities in science to solve real problems that matter to real people. I get to learn from my colleagues every day, and often get to teach in the places where I'm the one with expertise. There's a real diversity of backgrounds, interests, and experiences."
Director of Data Science
When I was looking for my next job I had three requirements: a job that was technically/intellectually stimulating; a company where I could receive technical mentorship; and a job where I could utilize my tech skills towards social good. Two years in, Civis continues to meet those three requirements."
Civis is such a wonderful mesh of effective collaboration and brilliance. Whether it is a new service offering or a case study that an extremely talented data scientist was able to solve, I'm excited to support and work with such awe-inspiring people."
