Markit On Demand, is a design driven technology company based in Boulder, Colorado. We’re part of Markit, a global financial information company that’s headquartered in London. Here in Boulder, where the sun shines 300 days a year, we have a team of 400+ professionals dedicated to the presentation of financial content and data for our clients in the Financial Services, Media and Healthcare industries. On any given day, you might work with a colleague in New York, a retail brokerage in the US, a newspaper in Germany, a bank in Africa, or throw ideas around with an economist in our London office. And that’s before you meet up with co-workers for a foothills hike or brewery happy hour.
As storytellers, we use work to understand content. We use this data to construct narratives that take advantage of technology and translate information into elegant user experiences, used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world, every day.
We love a collaborative environment where ideas are valued. Using tools like 50-foot whiteboards and lots of sticky notes we draw out big ideas, or a thousand smaller ones. Our work is a constant cycle of listening, showing, and telling to create sites, apps and tools that help people understand complex information.

What does tomorrow’s data look like? The success of any project hinges on our ability to work with our clients to answer that question. It is in this phase that we use the tools of inquiry and collaboration to establish business objectives, goals and plan to ensure that our train of ingenuity comes in on time.
Design is an iterative process of concepting and strategy to create the interactions of the future. Design also helps in coordinating and distilling the ideas that define the project, as well as the development of graphic collateral.
How are we going to build it? We do everything possible to balance design with the realities of available technologies today, that’s why we try to include our technical specialists in the conversation as early as possible. In this phase, the imagined product comes to life. Software is developed, interfaces are constructed, content is created, front and back-end coding occurs and data integration happens.
How do we make sure that it works everyday, all of the time, around the globe? We work hard to ensure the product vision functions as expected through close collaboration between design, development and quality assurance.
We have three data centers in North America dedicated to our clients. With thousands of servers running in our facilities, we’re responsible for delivering critical financial data to users on every continent. Whether to the home page of the Financial Times or to a research analyst’s desktop or on CNBC, every web site or mobile app we design, build and host has to look great and perform well under pressure.
Feel free to submit an application or resume to any department, and we will keep it on file for hiring in the future.
