Mercury is changing how startups bank*. We’re a financial technology company that helps startups spend less time banking and more time building their companies. In 2023, we grew transaction volume by 90% to $95B total and we have even larger ambitions. In April we announced expansion into personal banking, in May we announced new products to help finance teams do their daily work, and we have more coming this year.

In the late 1990s, Ethan Zuckerman, a programmer and designer for invented the “pop-up ad.”  Zuckerman used JavaScript to open another window on a web page, which allowed him to launch ads in separate windows.  Zuckerman has since apologized.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at
