About Us

Clarivate Analytics is in the business of innovation. The global company’s tools leverage its own curated data to serve customers across intellectual property, life sciences and education — among other fields — delivering insights and analytics that help their clients make the best, most-informed decisions they can.

The company’s Philadelphia office, at the corner of 15th and Spring Garden, is in a building that takes up nearly an entire city block. It’s close to restaurants and transit, and the back patio has an epic view of the skyline. Soon, photos taken by employees will adorn the office’s walls, the result of a contest where team members had the opportunity to vote for their peers.

Teams at Clarivate are spread across the globe (a developer in Philly could be working on a team with people in London and Beijing), but even with distributed teams, employees see each other as family. In fact, Clarivate employees support each other’s career growth, resulting in longer-term job stability and overall satisfaction.

While Clarivate is proud to have many industry vets on their team, they’re also always looking to bring newcomers on, as well. They frequently seek Drexel students for co-ops and other stakeholders in Philly’s tech community. The combination of old-school and new-school means they’ve got the best of both worlds on their team, where experience blends with fresh perspectives to create meaningful solutions.
