  • Equal Opportunity Employment

    Vertex is committed to equal employment opportunity and non-discrimination for all employees and qualified applicants without regard to a person's race, color, sex, gender identity or expression, age, religion, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, marital status, or any characteristic protected under applicable law. Vertex is an E-Verify Employer in the United States. Vertex will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities, in accordance with applicable law. Any applicant requiring an accommodation in connection with the hiring process and/or to perform the essential functions of the position for which the applicant has applied should make a request to the recruiter or hiring manager, or contact Human Resources at ApplicationAssistance@vrtx.com.

  • Agencies

    External recruitment firms are an important component of our talent acquisition strategy at Vertex; we value the partnerships built with our vendors. As a policy, we do not accept unsolicited resumes from external recruitment firms.  All resumes submitted by external recruitment firms must be submitted through our applicant tracking system and all correspondence should be directed to a contact within Talent Acquisition; engagement with external firms requires that a signed Vertex Employment Agency agreement be on file. External agency submissions that are sent to any employee or hiring manager, outside of the outlined process, will be deemed unsolicited and no fee will be paid in the event that the candidate is hired. Credit will be attributed as a referral or hired through other means.

    Our external recruitment partners should also be reminded to comply with all Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) guidelines.
