Hear from our Veterans

I found the culture of Citizens, from the people to the work environment, to be embracing of my background, skills and experiences. I was also really impressed by the sense of family and community that Citizens projects; very much in line with how the Marine Corps treats our Service Members and their families.

– Chris D. (Marine Corps Veteran) Vice President, Sourcing Lead

Citizens offers key elements that service members appreciate; a clear career path to management and senior roles, care for colleagues wellbeing, a strong mission, a supportive culture and a sense of purpose-driving high-impact initiatives. We're encouraged to be the best versions of ourselves, armed with the resources and support needed to succeed.

– Cale C. (U.S. Coastguard Veteran) Vice President, Program Manager
