TechTalent awards launches in Arizona

TechTalent AZ has arrived to celebrate Arizona’s top emerging tech talent! These awards are meant to recognize the behind-the-scenes employees—not executives—of Arizona’s most promising tech companies. The unique award program wishes to honor the individuals who have made an impact not only on their organization, but on their community as well.

The awards will be presented to those who go above and beyond what is expected of them, who work hard to achieve greatness in order to be innovative, create solutions, and also motivate and challenge their fellow employees to solve business problems. It takes a great deal of determination to make strides as great as these in the tech world; and it’s about time that these awesome individuals get the recognition they deserve.

The purpose of the TechTalent awards is not only to recognize successful individuals in the industry, but to further support the effort to attract and keep talent within the tech industry. The awards will single out and praise the individuals for their skill and hard work that they do for their organization.

Roles of the nominated individuals may include:

  • Software or Web Developer
  • Marketer
  • Customer Success Director
  • Programmer
  • Data Security Analyst
  • IT Architect
  • Computer Systems Analyst
  • IT Manager
  • Engineer
  • Sales Manager
  • Process Designer

The award categories that these individuals can be placed into are:

  • Community: Those who support the development of others
  • Growth: Someone who has helped boost the company’s bottom line
  • Infrastructure: Someone who has built a program or process that improved the overall product, reduced costs, or tightened up a process.
  • Customer Experience: Someone who has solved problems and surprised or delighted their customers.
  • Emerging Talent: Students who are doing creative and innovative things in the tech world.

What do winners of the awards receive? A trophy, of course! On top of that, the individuals will also be featured in the SuccessLab podcast, be included in all media outreach materials, and get profiled in the TechTalent blog post series.

Once you nominate yourself or someone else, the eight talented judges from the tech community here in Arizona will be decide which nominees make the cut.

The TechTalent awards are open to anyone residing in Arizona who is working for and making waves in the tech industry.
