Account Executive

Are you passionate about sales?  Does selling cutting edge technology energize you?  Have you seen how data can be used to significantly transform how decisions are made within organizations?  If so – we hope that you’ll join us.

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.

In this position, reporting to the vice president of sales, you’ll be calling on key decision makers and stakeholders to better understand their organization’s challenges.  You’ll then help identify ways that Civis Analytics’ platform and services can transform their capabilities around leveraging data and using predictive modeling.  Specifically – you’ll identify opportunities within your territory, build significant relationships within the organization, drive and close business deals with your key accounts.

Civis Analytics is a team-based organization - so you’ll have full support of the team to drive sales.  That means that you must work well with others who approach problems from different perspectives.  Additionally, we value creativity, hard work, commitment to delivering on goals 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. Interested?  We want to hear from you!
