Channel Marketing Specialist

Location: Allen, TX

Department: Marketing

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

We’re an intimate, impassioned company growing pretty darn fast. In fact, we made the Inc. 5000 for eight straight years. But that doesn’t mean we’re rapidly expanding beyond our waistband. We’re carefully selecting determined, open and creative people that want to be a part of something great. We’re Forte, and we simplify payments for merchants and developers by offering smart, strong payment solutions. Busy, busy builders.

We’re on the lookout for a Channel Marketing Specialist to join our team.

You’d work under the Director of Marketing in a small group of six. Our world? We operate under a schedule that ebbs and flows with an ever-changing workflow. At times it’s blinders on, tunnel-vision time. The work comes hard and fast with suggestions, changes and curve balls to keep you on your toes. Other times, we get to relax. Brainstorm through afternoons without ceilings.

We work together, we fret and discuss, we reconsider and redo. You need to own your work, but not cling to it. Confidence is cool, but ego? Not so much. We’re in the business of opening doors, not closing them. But we firmly believe in enjoying the ride. And celebrating, when we get the job done right.
