What we're looking for
Civis Analytics is looking for Senior Engineers to join its NYC-based political research and development team.
This team will build the next generation of data science for Democratic and progressive organizations, and Senior Engineers will play the principal leadership role on the team.
Civis' objective this year and next is simple: we want every political client organization to be data-driven and digital first. Here's how you'd help:
First, the Civis platform is the technology of record for hundreds of in-house data scientists and analysts across the progressive movement. We seek to extend the feature set and capabilities to help these users quickly and self-reliantly accomplish their missions through data.
Second, Civis is building new digital technologies to help campaigns make the transition to digital outreach. It's 2019 after all. We're building the measurement, execution, and attribution tools to help these campaigns measure, target, and spend their dollars effectively and transparently through digital tools.
We're a small team who works hard and makes a measurable impact in supporting progressive causes. If you're looking for a way to have a big impact on the 2020 election, this is it.
Below are some details, and the application is below. And even if you want to just hear more, let us know and we'll quickly get on the phone with you to discuss more.
