Opportunity starts with you
We are a global company that is rapidly expanding its technology throughout the business
What we do
The Product Development team delivers solutions that help our business to provide forward-looking intelligence, analysis and data for our subscribers.
Our subscribers include advisory firms, investment banks, law firms, hedge funds, private equity firms and corporates.
We’re focused on bringing a fresh perspective to our technology stack - this means that every project starts as greenfield, offering you the opportunity to decide upon the right tool for the job.
We work in cross-functional teams – business analysts and product owners partnering with the software development team to develop the most robust solutions for the organisation.
"My goal as the CTO at the Mergermarket Group is to refresh our core products that our subscribers use everyday, improving their workflow.
As well as ensuring the existing product range is supported 24/7, my focus is to lead product development initiatives in the refresh of the Group’s core products and platform.
Prior to joining the Mergermarket Group in May 2014 I've worked in publishing and media in various technical teams for over 14 years and I’m enjoying the new challenge."
"With recent significant changes to how the technology department functions, I was given the opportunity to join as Chief Architect and face the great challenge of designing our new products based on modern technology and principles.
It’s great working with a team of talented folks that are happiest when learning and applying principles that would produce better products.
It’s not just about how cool a technology or approach is, it’s mainly about how cool our products will be for our subscribers if we do things in a certain way."
"What I love most about the team at the Mergermarket Group is how passionate everyone is about technology and problem-solving. I've worked here for over three years and every day is different - there's no dearth of challenges, discussions or laughs.
It's satisfying to work with a closely-knit team that recognises the value of collaboration and good practices, both in technology and processes. Working on a modern tech stack, developing iteratively, testing pragmatically, pair-programming, working in an open and inclusive culture - these are a few of my favourite things!"
We use agile practices to deliver products incrementally - encouraging collaborative, iterative and dynamic ways of working.
- We’re ideas people, focused on coming up with new financial products that are innovative and leading-edge.
- From the moment you join, you can expect responsibility, variety and opportunity.
- We’re a hard-working but social group that cultivates a friendly and fun environment.
"Working with friendly and enthusiastic people has always been very important for me. At the Mergermarket Group I was able to find this and more: the department is flat which fosters the sharing of ideas, the culture is open, inclusive and the work as a Business Analyst is very hands on."
"I have been at the Mergermarket Group for several years now and I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here as the Service Desk Manager. The culture of the company is great along with the people that work here; regardless of anyone’s positions everyone will have time to speak to you."
- Progression and development beyond the job you were hired for.
- Encouraging continuous growth and learning whether it's new technologies, or a new skill set.
- Participating in the technology community.
- Opening ourselves up to more learning opportunities.
- Working in close proximity to the business to shape the future of the products.
- Valuing opinion.
- Making time to help each other.
- Sharing ideas with passionate, creative people.
- Passion for delivering better technology faster.
- Not accepting the status quo.
- Challenging ourselves in an entrepreneurial environment.
- Innovating to take the group to even greater success.
"Prior to joining, I worked alongside the Mergermarket Group for an external consultancy. I was impressed with the products and the fun atmosphere. I joined as a senior developer in 2007, progressed to team lead where I was able to make my mark and now I'm head of development. "
"The Mergermarket Group has given me opportunities to grow and define my career path. After graduating university I joined as a Helpdesk Analyst, since then I've moved to the development team, working and collaborating with great people. I'm currently focusing on UX/UI design and development."

We never miss the opportunity to celebrate successes and milestones with team lunches, friday drinks, offsite days and social events. You can join in our company-wide social club, running, gym or football clubs.....we do have a lot of fun!

A note from us to Recruitment Agents
We're really pleased to know that so many of you would like to work with us. While we appreciate that you have a job to do, and as much as we'd like to interact with all of you, this just isn't possible as there are far more of you then there are of us. We're in a really fortunate position that we attract loads of candidates directly via our website. We also have a very strong internal promotion culture. This means we have very low requirements to use multiple Recruitment Agencies. That said, sometimes we do use Recruitment Agencies, and these agencies are on our Preferred Supplier List. We use their services as they've built a strong understanding of the types of people we like to recruit. With that in mind, we politely ask that you avoid making any approaches to our Resourcing Team or Managers across the business.
We do not pay agency fees where speculative and unsolicited resumes are submitted to Mergermarket Group or to our employees. If agencies send unsolicited resumes we reserve the right to contact these candidates directly and initiate discussions without payment of any agency fee.
The Mergermarket Group is fully committed to a policy of non-discrimination and to promoting equality of opportunity in employment on grounds of merit, experience, skills and aptitude in order to maximise the full potential of both existing and prospective employees.
