  • Fielding internal and external data requests and questions
  • Perform various data science, analysis, and/or research tasks as needed

  • Demonstrated commitment to using data for the public interest

  • Unlimited Paid Time Off (vacation, sick days & public holidays)
  • Family Leave (Maternity, Paternity)
  • Training & Career Development
  • Work From Home

Our greatest strength as a company is the team building it. As we strive to use data to bridge divides, advance meaningful change, and strengthen American democracy, we are committed to growing a team that reflects the diversity of this country. Citizen is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applicants from any and all backgrounds, experiences, ideologies, and perspectives.
