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?

As VP of Sales you will be responsible for acquiring and retaining customers for our data science products and services. You will be charged with identifying and evaluating potential growth opportunities, building and driving relationships with key internal and external stakeholders, standing up and building out the software sales team, territory planning, providing market research and analysis, and helping shape the go-to-market strategy for our products and services in a perpetually evolving environment.
Your responsibilities will cut across all departments at Civis Analytics. You must be able to work well with others who approach problems from different perspectives, but you will be expected to challenge and improve the way we operate as we mature. This role will report to the CEO and is based in our Chicago headquarters.

Civis Analytics has opportunities for applicants who are seasoned professionals, brilliant newcomers, and anywhere in between. We are looking for detail-oriented individuals from diverse backgrounds with demonstrated quantitative and problem-solving skills. We value creativity, hard work and on-the-job-excellence and offer competitive compensation and benefits packages. In compliance with federal law, all persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States.
