About Us

For 130 years, Merck, known as MSD outside of the United States and Canada, has been inventing for life, bringing forward medicines and vaccines for many of the world’s most challenging diseases in pursuit of our mission to save and improve lives. We demonstrate our commitment to patients and population health by increasing access to health care through far-reaching policies, programs and partnerships. Today, we continue to be at the forefront of research to prevent and treat diseases that threaten people and animals – including cancer, infectious diseases such as HIV and Ebola, and emerging animal diseases – as we aspire to be the premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company in the world.

We hire the most brilliant minds because inventing for life depends on our work. Here, you'll find rewarding opportunities, diverse experiences, and an unwavering commitment to ethics and integrity. You'll collaborate with talented colleagues who share your sense of purpose. Our company will empower you to innovate, explore, and develop your full potential in our possibility-rich environment. Our team is constantly evolving, so if you are among the intellectually curious, join us—and start making your impact today.


Because we recognize that our people are critical to our mission of improving and saving lives and are committed to rewarding their contributions. And, that's why we provide a valuable suite of compensation and benefit programs as well as resources to support our employees' professional achievement and personal well-being.

We value global diversity and inclusion at every level of the organization --- starting with the Office of the CEO -- and strive for inclusiveness in every aspect of work.
