Solution Architect, Political
What we do
At Civis, we take a science-first approach to solving problems using person-level data. With a blend of proprietary technology and statistical advisory services, we help Democratic campaigns and progressive 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 organization forward.
