We chose the name Mercury to convey our commitment to delivering information with extraordinary speed and efficiency. That decision, made long before today’s mobile revolution, could not have been more fitting today, as the latest news, information and entertainment streams directly into the palm of our hands.
Mercury got its start over 20 years ago, first in web development and then desktop applications. With the launch of Apple’s App Store for iPhone in 2008, we found ourselves perfectly poised to make the leap to mobile, and we soon developed the first native iPhone, iPad and Android applications for some of the world’s leading media companies including CNN, USA Today, New York Times, Comcast, Showtime and TED.
Our iOS and Android apps have been downloaded more than 75 million times, a testament to our passion for delivering the most seamless, intuitive user experience possible. As a result, we are regularly recognized for our achievements in performance and design and are often recommended by Apple and Google, who understand our commitment to creating outstanding app experiences.
Perfecting those experiences requires a highly orchestrated effort from all of our combined departments. We boast a world-class team of over 30 developers, designers, project managers and QA experts that continue to help the world’s most prominent brands as well as start-ups and new businesses launch applications that encourage daily use.
The quality of the relationships we build with our clients is as important to us as the quality of our work. We have a proud history of maintaining long-term collaborations with the brands that we serve. Two-thirds of our business in 2014 came from customers we’ve worked with for over five years.
