Posted 2 months ago

Our mission at Socrata is to help government use data more strategically and effectively in the design and delivery of their programs and missions. Since 2007, we have focused on improving the access and utility of data held by government institutions around the world, and making that data useful to people outside and inside of government.

Socrata set out to develop a new kind of cloud-based software infrastructure and an innovation network designed to unlock the flow of government data. We're the leader of a global movement called open data where engaged citizens, civic hackers, elected leaders, program managers, entrepreneurs, journalists, scientists and researchers are applying data to age-old problems to make government more efficient and to improve society as a whole by improving government outcomes.

Our data platform and cloud-based solutions support the world's most ambitious open data programs and internal data sharing programs at every level of government. Our customers include the US Federal Government; half of US states and most major US cities and counties. Some of our amazing customers include states like New York, Texas and Utah; cities like Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York; federal agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), US Department of Commerce, the US Department of Transportation and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services! Our select few non-governmental customers are ones with influence over government data policy, including the World Bank, the United Nations and the European Commission.

How We Act

At Socrata, how we act with each other and our customers embodies the core values and our code of conduct:

We value big ideas and creative execution

We build open and honest relationships

We are results driven and accountable

We celebrate success together
