Redefining Health Care
with Digital Innovation



Merck establishes fourth IT office in Austin, Texas.

Austin joins our global family of technology offices in Prague, Singapore and Branchburg, New Jersey, where we engage with top tech minds from across the company, academia, start-ups, and the health care community to develop life-saving health solutions that will drive the core business of our company.

Operating at the intersection of technology, health care, and the life sciences, we support the invention of novel medicines, broaden access to medicine to the people who need it, and enable care through technology. We have always been and always will be inventing, and we do it for the single greatest purpose: Life.



On a daily basis, we partner with our business colleagues to take on the challenge to answer questions like:

  • How can we help doctors enhance their engagement with patients?
  • How can we help our scientists invent more life-saving medicines?
  • How can we help streamline our supply and distribution channels?

To help answer these questions, we came to Austin to partner and co-develop solutions with the local community.

Merck IT Austin

We have a 24/7 office strategy at Merck that enables us to support digital
objectives across all areas of our company.

We’ve opened a state-of-the-art office in the heart of Austin. Located within the new medical school campus at the University of Texas (UT), our environment fosters collaboration and creativity in a relaxed atmosphere and supports our goal to have technology help drive Merck’s overall business outcomes.


Austin is a place where innovative partners come together and fuse technology, design, and creativity to produce powerful new ideas and answers. We’re applying this synergistic mindset to digital health through Austin-based partnerships that are primed to produce intriguing opportunities for Merck, the community, our partners, and the world.

We welcome the opportunity to become a part of this vibrant and diverse tapestry of thinkers, dreamers, and doers—we’re in the right place, at the right time, with some very exciting partnerships.


Our Austin office is located in UT’s Dell Medical School Health Discovery Building – the first new medical school at a Tier 1 research university in decades, built from the ground up to use technology to rethink how care is researched, conceived, experienced, and evaluated.

Merck offers opportunities to not only develop and expand your IT career but also make a true difference in peoples’ lives by applying our technology and data science know-how to health care. Our diverse, energetic, and dynamic atmosphere includes talented team members from around the globe who are committed to creating innovative health care solutions.
