    Working at Civil
    Fulfilling our mission requires building a phenomenal team. At Civil we are building an open, trustworthy and transformative work environment and career opportunity for our teammates to do their best work.

    We believe performance is measured at the team level, not the individual. We don’t believe in traditional hierarchy or corporate structure. Instead, we intend to create a more dynamic and synchronous organization of self-managing individuals and high-performing teams.

    We believe in vesting as much autonomy & freedom into the individual as possible while still maintaining cohesion within teams and as an organization as a whole. We believe star players expect a vast range of responsibility, to make decisions quickly and without hesitation, and to manage their own priorities fluidly. However, with this level of freedom and our need for consistent cohesion, Civil teammates also recognize the huge premium we place on communication, context, inclusion, and feedback.

    We aim to constantly improve ourselves as teammates and individuals through frequent feedback & radical listening. Consistent, proactive communication and feedback becomes a tool for ideas, higher-quality execution and personal and team development. Additionally, we support each other through collaborative coaching & mentorship.

    We place great value on happiness, holistic health, personal space and well-roundedness. We are committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and open culture that allows you to bring your whole self to work. Furthermore, we respect the fact that everyone has personal lives and families and we encourage balance and attention to personal wellbeing. We believe peace of mind and the drive for continuous improvement are personal requirements for working at the top of one's game.
