Our team helps our enterprise get the most out of our marketing technology investments, whether that's creatively leveraging out of the box functionality or extending through customization.

  • Understand complex technical concepts and translate them into solutions that are understandable and engaging.

  • Leverage data to produce personalized experiences relevant to customers.

  • Enable foundational marketing technology solutions that use data to make effective marketing possible.

We’re looking for someone with:

  • Associate's or Bachelor's degree with a preference in a science, technology, engineering, or math related field or equivalent work experience plus 2+ years of technology experience

  • Skilled in backend JavaScript programming (Node.js preferred)

  • Exposure with API calls, system integrations, or data positioning/movement

Additional preferred technical experience:

  • Familiar with development for cloud platforms (we use AWS, but we're open to others with experience in GCP, Heroku, etc.)

  • Experience implementing and extending vendor platforms (examples include: Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Medallia, Sprinklr, Salesforce CRM, Google Analytics, etc.)

  • Integration with data warehouses to generate marketing insights

  • Mentoring, teaching, and growing skill sets of others


This role may require some on call responsibilities.
