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.
