Civis Analytics is building a data-driven world.

We are building cloud-based products to help organizations do data science better and easier. We create technologies that empower organizations to unlock the truth hiding in their own data—transforming them into smart organizations that are ready to thrive.

We're solving the world's biggest problems with big data. Through research, experimentation, and iteration, we’re transforming how organizations do analytics.

While our history is rooted in political campaign targeting, we’re now partnering with intelligent organizations in healthcare, media, education, and a range of other domains.

We are a community of engineers, data scientists, and statisticians, and are looking to add to our growing team. We are smart, fun, and a little bit weird. Does this sound like you?

Are you a self-starter? Do you want to work where you can make an immediate impact? Civis Analytics is looking for a DevOps 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. 

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?
