The team at Merlon Intelligence is that rare concoction, a blend of seemingly mismatched parts, that brought together are creating something previously considered impossible. We like asking “why not ” and challenging the status quo. We don’t have a motto, but if we did it would probably sound a lot like “If you keep doing the same thing over and over, why would you expect the result to change?

Try something different.” So we did.

We dare you!

Is it time to try something different? Whether you’re just getting started or maybe you’ve been at this for a while and need a change, Merlon Intelligence might be the place for you. But first, a few questions to help you decide. Are looking for a job? If you answered yes, you might want to consider searching the job placement websites.

Being on the Merlon team is a lot of things — unique, crazy, amazing, industry-changing, lifelong friend building — but one thing it isn’t: just a job. So if you’re a bridge-jumping, cold-water swimming, no challenge too big, setting-the-world-on-fire type of person you might be just the right fit with the rest of us!

And don’t hesitate just because you don’t see an opening listed for your skillset. We look at the person first and the role second. Also, we’re growing faster than our webmaster can update the listings. Speaking of webmasters…
