Technical Lead - Salesforce Marketing Cloud 

At Horizontal Digital, we hold ourselves to one key belief: You’re only as good as your worst customer experience. This mantra is what drives our digital consultancy to think beyond the easy answers and instead create websites, apps, portals and other experiences that solve customer needs for Fortune 500 companies in intuitive and empathetic ways. And we make this lofty standard a reality by fusing strategy, data, design and technology together to arrive at solutions that set the bar higher for everyone.

We use these values to fuel superior results:

Lock arms

We forge relationships that make our impact 1,000x stronger. This means working across departments and engaging both our clients and our communities to deliver the greatest good.

Show hustle

We’re not ones to sit on our hands and wait. Instead, we anticipate opportunities, collectively roll up our sleeves and find ways to execute the exceptional.

Embrace change

From new technologies to workplace philosophies, we welcome the unexpected and constantly anticipate what’s next.

Elevate empathy

We listen before we take action. This means understanding a variety of perspectives and holding ourselves to a higher standard of accountability.

Never settle

We motivate each other to push past the easy answers and collectively arrive at bigger, more inspiring ideas.
