PRINCETON, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Heartland Payment Systems (
Heartland employs more than 400 IT professionals across three locations in the United States -- Plano, Texas; Portland, Ore.; and Jeffersonville, Ind., who are encouraged to pursue their professional goals within an environment focused on innovation, flexibility, and a healthy work-life balance. Heartland's IT employees routinely receive new technology training, as well as rewards and recognition from Heartland's chief technology officer Kris Herrin and chief enterprise architect Bryan Thompson.
"Being recognized for the third year in a row as a top-notch working environment for IT professionals is an outstanding achievement for Heartland and our entire IT team nationwide," said Herrin. "Our 400-plus IT employees use the latest mobile, cloud and big data technologies, in an agile environment, to deliver innovative solutions to Heartland's merchants as well as the entire company."
Since 1994, Computerworld's annual "Best Places to Work in IT" feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings. Each year, 100 organizations are selected by the Computerworld editorial team to receive this award.
"We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "This year, several new names have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year. It's clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical projects."
