Mercury Systems – Why Work With Us?

Mercury Systems has built a next generation business model that we believe puts us in a unique position within the defense industrial base and in particular within defense electronics. Today within the DoD and the industrial base that supports it, challenges have taken center stage around the need for procurement reform, the more rapid and timely adoption of open systems based architectures, and the need to be nimble and responsive in the face of continued uncertainty at home and instability abroad. Mercury Systems has adopted a next generation business model that we believe addresses these pressing issues, while at the same time leveraging our 30-year commitment to innovation.

We deliver innovative solutions, rapid time-to-value, and world-class service and support to our prime contractor customers. Mercury Systems has worked on over 300 programs, including Aegis, Patriot, SEWIP, Gorgon Stare and Predator/Reaper.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Mercury Systems.


    The interview process was very streamlined and execution was clockwork. Right from setting up the first call, followup on-campus interviews to acceptance was very well managed and its a great experience for anyone planning to switch jobs. By the end of the process, I felt even more willing to join this company than what I felt while applying.

    Interview Questions

    • They evaluated how well I fit into the management's vision. Interviews were conducted by hiring manager, peers and others I would be working with and all of them asked questions related to Mercury's long term vision and what I've done in the past as it relates to that road-map.   Answer Question
