What Makes Us Different

Most of our clients originally came to us because they were facing steep challenges. They needed to make breakthroughs, and our partnership enabled them to achieve peak performance.

What sets our company apart is that every one of us is dedicated to making clients successful. That is our shared passion, and it drives a continual commitment to excellence in our software products and services.

We develop advanced data management, connectivity, and analytics technologies that help our clients make breakthroughs in healthcare, financial services, government, utilities, and other industries that demand the highest software performance and reliability.

We also serve the needs of innovative application vendors who use our technology platform to create breakthrough solutions that give them competitive advantages.

As a consistently profitable, privately held company, our focus on client success has never been distracted by demands from outside investors or the short-term gyrations of stock markets.

Paul Grabscheid, InterSystems Vice President of Strategic Planning, explains why companies trust InterSystems as a key partner for technology innovation and market leadership.

InterSystems is a creative technology partner with a passion for excellence and client success, and we look to hire people whose professional values align with those of the business. As a global company, we focus our employee culture around four important areas that can be seen throughout all levels of the organization:

  • Cooperative Intelligence
  • Empowering Freedom
  • Unparalleled Reliability
  • Ambitious Discoveries

These are the underlying values that all members of the InterSystems team practice on a daily basis. It’s something we believe in, and something we look for in all candidates we hire.

Regardless of the position or department that interests you, we look to hire people with an insatiable curiosity, and a continued desire to learn and improve. A passion for learning and continued professional growth is respected at our organization no matter how skilled, high-ranking, or qualified. In addition, we like to hire people who enjoy sharing their thoughts, ideas, and experiences.

Do your values align with ours? We’d love to hear from you!



Make Breakthroughs in your Career

Come and enlighten us. Bring your ideas and intelligence, and be ready to argue and debate.

Let’s create breakthrough solutions at a scale that hasn’t been done before. Dial down the wacky and dial up the excellence. We respect that.

Chances are you’ve never heard of us, but we’ve been privately and successfully innovating for the past 37 years. Taking risks. Testing ourselves, and solving complex problems of the highest magnitude for our customers, and alongside our partners and peers.

The challenges only get harder but never go away. Neither will we.

It’s an aggressive, fast-cycled, fast-paced, deadline-driven, adrenaline-pumping environment.

There’s never a point when you’re not catching your breath, but we guarantee you’ll still have time to enjoy your life.

If you’re smart, you’ll join us.
 Just make sure you're ready to do great things.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at InterSystems.


    After applying online, I was contacted for next steps and told I had to go through an online screening process: a Predictive Index Survey (personality test), a Technical Employment Test (logic test where you learn a custom-made coding language), and a Professional Employment Test (cognitive/problem solving test). You have to complete the first one and pass the second one to make it to the third one -- even though I thought I got maybe 19 or 20 out of 20 questions on the second test, I didn't "meet the mark." Not really sure what they're looking for and was a little disappointed with the poor formatting of the second test.
