What we do

At Civis, we take a science-first approach to solving problems. With a blend of proprietary technology and statistical advisory services, we help public and private sector organizations find, understand and connect with the people they care about, so they can stop guessing and start using mathematical proof to guide decisions. We know others use “data science” and “analytics” as buzzwords, but at Civis we don’t stand for fluff, and we will always deliver scalable products and technologies — not PowerPoints — to drive your business forward. Learn more about Civis at www.civisanalytics.com.

Our mission

Our mission is to bring objective, data-driven truth to organizational decision-making – all the way from the boardroom to the world’s largest social causes.

About our team

The Finance, Accounting, and Revenue Operations team (affectionately called Team Money), is a part of the larger Operations team at Civis. The Operations team also includes our People Operations and Legal teams. As an Operations team, our core values include respect, humanity, ownership, and humility. We strive to bring these values to work every day, with the aim of making Civis a great place to work for everyone. 

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, all Civis offices are closed and all employees are remote for the foreseeable future. This is being closely monitored as things change and it’s likely our offices will reopen. Because of this uncertainty, we want to ensure candidates for this role are open to relocating to our Chicago office in the future.

What we are looking for:

  • As a member of the finance team, you’ll support the preparation of and analysis of financial reporting materials to be shared with leadership and investors. You will also help support decision making with ad hoc financial reporting and analysis on a wide range of business and financial matters including product economics, business metric development, and long-term planning. You will work closely with our Revenue Operations, Accounting, and Marketing teams and have frequent executive visibility. 
  • We’re looking for someone with a knack for finance and an appetite for problem solving. A can-do attitude and willingness to help out your colleagues will be important for success in this role.

Responsibilities: 

  • Lead elements of financial data creation and maintain financial systems data integrity 
  • Support accounting with month end close activities 
  • Analyze past and current financial and operational data for trends and performance indicators
  • Develop a strong understanding of existing systems and processes 
  • Actively contribute to process improvement and reporting enhancement initiatives 
  • Learn the ins and outs of the business in order to support various internal stakeholders and put analysis into context of the whole business

Preferred qualifications:

  • 2+ years work experience
  • Degree in Finance or Accounting, or related experience in a relevant field, such as financial planning & analysis, financial services, accounting, consulting, or tech industry experience
  • Proficient in Microsoft or Google suite, in particular with spreadsheets and decks 
  • Experience working in Netsuite, Google suite, and Salesforce is a plus

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.
