At Horizon, we fearlessly communicate and effectively collaborate. We celebrate beautiful minds and empower our people to think big and brave. Our culture is based on authenticity, so you can be yourself - because if you’re not yourself, you’re not having fun. And who doesn’t want to have fun, right?


Creative thinkers, coffee drinkers and hook-line-sinkers; excellent writers, occasional all-nighters and freedom fighters; passionate communicators, content curators and social moderators.


Spoil sporters, message distorters; slow pacers, image defacers, money chasers; slave drivers, work skivers.
