Tech in Motion Announces Top Local Tech Companies to Work at, Opens 2019 Timmys Voting to the Public
CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech in Motion selected Armorblox as a 2019 finalist for the Best Tech Work Culture category in the annual Timmy Awards, where the event series recognizes the top local workplaces for tech professionals. Including Armorblox, the finalists excel at the category’s criteria, from creating a rewarding team environment to promoting innovation, learning and technical creativity. Two Best Tech Work Culture awards will be announced at a live ceremony this October, one for Judge’s Choice and one for Community Favorite, which is chosen by public voting available here.
Armorblox is disrupting the information security industry by applying Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and other advanced machine learning techniques to cybersecurity’s biggest threats. Armorblox is helping organizations identify suspicious emails, prevent accidental data loss, and catch insider threats – which have been difficult for traditional security solutions to address.
“We’ve assembled an all-star team, with members who work hard to solve cybersecurity’s biggest problems,” said DJ Sampath, CEO and cofounder of Armorblox. “It is important for us to maintain a culture that rewards employees, and to do whatever we can so that they can take pride in their work while having fun!”
“We’re thrilled to continue to recognize and celebrate so many of the companies that are striving to better the lives and workplaces of their tech teams,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “We get to grow with our local communities as an event series, which is why offering two awards this year is so exciting. It shows the innovation and growth of companies within the tech scene here.”
The local community has a chance to get involved by voting online now through September 27th to determine which company will be crowned the best in tech as the Community Favorite, while the Judge’s Choice winners will be chosen by a panel of expert judges. Aside from Best Tech Work Culture, the other award categories include: Best Tech Manager, Best Tech Startup and Best Tech Workplace for Diversity. The complete list of 2019 Timmy Awards finalists can be found here.
During October, this free event will be open to the public and consist of tech demos, entertainment and networking with top tech leaders.
