Meet some of our people and see what we like to do.
So ugly, but sooo good
During the Employee Summit, each team went out for dinner, glass blowing, painting, or some activity planned by their department head. This is the General and Admin Team night in Ballard
Marketing Automation Specialist
I get to apply just about every skill I have on a daily basis, in addition to improving them and developing new ones. My co-workers are also pretty boss. It's great to work for a company where just about everyone is witty and well adjusted.
Director of Marketing
My job is a moving target, which I love. When I started at Socrata in 2013, my manager asked what my ideal job description would look like, and leadership has worked to put me in that exact role.
Customer Success Manager
I love seeing the "lightbulb" moment with a customer: when they suddenly get a really fantastic idea about what they can do with their data. Our customers are some of the smartest and most innovative people I know in government and their ideas make me really excited for the possibilities for open data.
I get to do what I enjoy with people I enjoy being around! I'm able to be myself at work because everyone is very welcoming and accepting.
All of my coworkers not only have immense talent and depth of knowledge, but they are also humble, dynamic, good humored people. What’s more, the Socrata family is more supportive and collaborative than any other company I’ve worked with, allowing me to rise to the challenges that emerge daily at a growing startup.
Working at Socrata is a little like choosing the red pill and getting ejected from the matrix. There's a very real knowledge that every day you're impacting the business (and hopefully even a little piece of the world) in some way.
Back End Engineer
Tech companies that are trying to build the most highly targeted ad platform or the next big social network or the "Uber of ___" are a dime a dozen. How many are actually creating a better world through their software? That number is much, much smaller. That plus the amazing people and technical challenges at Socrata are why I am so happy to work here.
Front End Engineer
As a front-end developer, the best part about my job is working on the cutting edge of various technologies and learning as much as possible from the talented people around me. Everyone I work with is very smart, but also very willing to take the time to give talks and share what they learn with others.
Also, yummy Pi day (3.14.2014)
Joe Pringle closed the biggest sales deal in Socrata's history. To memorialize this amazing achievement the Customer Success Team had a great idea: Have everyone in the company design their very own Pringle Art and use the Andy Warhol-like images to decorate our DC office which Joe calls home 🙂

Once a year all of Socrata's employees come together for a week to learn, unite and celebrate our amazing growth.
Hispanic Markets Lead
When I meet with new customers and they tell me that they want to be with Socrata because we are making a difference in the world, it is rewarding. And also sharing that story with people, how they can also make a difference is a great reward.
Customer Sucess Manager
Socrata allows me to apply an entrepreneurial mindset to some of our country's largest, and most entrenched systems that are looking to modernize. I am surrounded by brilliant clients and coworkers that teach me new things every day.
