An Insider's view of Civis Analytics

What's something quirky about your company?

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.

What does your typical day look like?

Even though our department has the primary responsibility for our customers' success, we work with people from every single department to make it happen. Helping our clients succeed is something that every department actively wants to be involved in.

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.
