Employee Awards

Employee of the Year

Our employees work hard, and we are so grateful for all that they do. Each year, everyone at Socrata will vote to select the recipient of the Socratian of the Year Award. The winner will get a round trip ticket anywhere in the world for themselves and a travel partner, and up to the first 3 nights accommodation on us!

One Month to Make a Difference

Many of Socrata’s employees choose to work here because they are passionate about Open Data, Civic Engagement and bettering the world. This is part of who we are as an employee population and as a company. To support that vision, Socrata will offer a paid sabbatical and $5,000 to one of our employees each year, who will use this time and money on a civic engagement initiative or project of their choosing. The initiative or project they choose should be representative of Socrata’s product, core values and mission.


A great way for employees to recognize one another for going above and beyond the call of duty, exhibiting a core value in their daily work and being remarkable in their role. Company wide recognition and small perks go to the winner!

Needle Mover
