We are Civilian.

We do work that matters.

See what we're about

Civilian is a unique band of ordinary people with extraordinary talents and a relentless desire to better the world. We love it and it’s what gets us up every day. Our people could work anywhere, but they choose to walk through our doors every morning looking to make a difference.

We use business as a force for good.

Our reason for B-ing

We earned our B Corp certification in 2018 to demonstrate our commitment to purpose-driven work. Not only does our work make the world better, but the way we work makes the world better, too. We consider the impact of our decisions on our employees, clients, suppliers, community, and the environment. We balance purpose and profit. Simply put, we put our money where our mouth is.

We don’t do it all, but we can get it all done.
