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.

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.
