Who We Are: Marketers For Good
Civilian is a different kind of marketing communications agency. For starters, we are a Certified B Corporation, which means we are part of a global network of companies using business as a force for good. We take on clients and projects that align with our mission to improve lives, strengthen communities, and better the world. Our work includes supporting mental health and wellness, preventing youth suicide, and reducing the impact of adverse childhood experiences. It also includes advancing environmental sustainability, promoting the value of education, and driving economic development. We call it “marketing for good.” From our headquarters in San Diego to our offices in Sacramento and Washington DC, we are dedicated to tackling challenging issues and creating positive change in the world.
We are a dedicated group of innovators and problem solvers who come to work every day grateful for the opportunity to make a difference. We support our employees’ professional and personal development with a rich set of benefits, humane working hours, and a culture that rewards embracing challenges and having a great time doing it. The success of our approach shows in our average employee tenure of nearly five years (vs. the industry average of 2.5) and in the number of Civilians that return. We offer a truly unique balance of professionalism and heart—and an office full of free snacks, a dog or two, and the occasional afternoon happy hour.
