Disrupting data science doesn’t come with a rulebook, so managers at Civis lead teams with an emphasis on support rather than guidance. This hands-off style gives team members of all ages the opportunity to own their work and contribute to the process of making it more innovative. Civis employees also share a sense of mission—and light-hearted humor—that keeps the momentum going.
Civis Analytics’ DC office is located just a few blocks from the spy museum, and is the hub to Civis’ political and government workforce. At the Chicago HQ, the local technology scene blends fast-paced work with a down-to-earth vibe that inspires a sense of community. The culture is characterized by an extreme drive to learn—and rotating peer-education activities like study groups, Lightning Talks during lunch, and hack nights ensure all intellectual needs are met.
