Merkle – Why Work For Us?


Inside the walls of Merkle, people are at the heart of what we do. Everyday Merkle employees bring their expertise to our broad client portfolio, delivering value to them across our full range of people-based marketing capabilities. Our people are central to the services we offer clients - across performance media, customer experience, CRM, loyalty, marketing technology and data analytics – and nurturing this talent is critical to our business.

Merkle continues to grow at an impressive rate over and above our competition, with 6000 people globally and winning many industry awards for the work we do to help our clients make their advertising addressable, their brand experiences personal and to manage relationships with their customers over time.

We became part of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) two years ago, which is further supporting our ambitious global expansion plans and enabling us to collaborate with other agencies across the group.

So, whether you are a new graduate seeking a fun yet rewarding environment to grow your career in, or a seasoned ‘data geek’ wanting to rub minds with the best in the industry, Merkle is the place for you!

Our employees are driven, enthusiastic and intellectually curious, so we know that they expect big things from us, as we do them! We've created a collaborative and open culture across our offices in the EMEA region. There's always someone interesting to chat to in the kitchen as you make your (free) brekkie and new colleagues to meet at our many company socials. We really want Merkle to enjoy coming into work and we put a lot of emphasis on ensuring that we have a happy and approachable environment.
