The 2024 Timmys: New Categories, New Awards, and a Return to a Live Show!

Tech in Motion’s Timmy Awards have been retooled for 2024! Being part of the tech community for over a decade, Tech in Motion has seen the industry constantly evolve, both in the product and services produced, to how and where IT work gets done. We like to think that we’ve also evolved in the past ten years, going from a conference room with a case of beer, and a couple of pizzas to the fastest-growing tech community platform, with over 350,000 people participating in Tech in Motion.

With that thought of evolution in mind, Tech in Motion has revamped the Timmy Awards for 2024, bringing in new ways for tech workers and companies to get involved across North America, bringing back Timmy traditions of old, and hopefully creating a night where the IT community can come together and celebrate the successes of the past year.

“We are thrilled to bring this new chapter of the Timmy Awards to the tech community in 2024,” said Cara Faszcza, Director of Tech in Motion. “The Timmys have always been a celebration of innovation inside the tech industry, and we are so excited to bring a fresh approach to our awards this year. From new award categories to more ways to engage and network virtually and in person, this year’s Timmy Awards will make it easier and more rewarding than ever to be a part of the Tech in Motion community."


Here are the big changes to the Timmys in 2024:

  1. 1. A Return to a Live, In-Person Timmys Award Show.

For the first time since 2019, the Timmy Awards ceremony will be hosted live and in-person. The exact date and locations will be announced at a later date, but this year’s show should not be missed.

In honor of our return to in-person events, the 2024 Timmys Awards will be more than just giving out awards but an all-day event full of panels and immersive workshops all leading up to the grand finale, the handing out of our 2024 Timmy Award winners! For those not able to attend in person, we have you covered with a live stream for our national audiences to enjoy the ceremony from the comfort of their homes!

  1. 2. Awards are No Longer City Based. Any Tech Worker or Tech Company can Nominate, No Matter Where You Live and Work.

The tech world has changed since the Timmys began in 2014, and technologists are no longer confined to the major cities of North America. All across the continent, businesses are creating innovative products that are changing the world and deserve to be recognized.

This is why this year’s Timmy Awards are no longer limited to specific cities/locations. If you are a tech professional or passionate about a tech company, you are welcome to submit a nomination.

New call-to-action

  1. 3. Brand New Categories

This year’s Timmy Awards is proud to add three new categories to the mix, the Technology Team of the Year and Best Remote Work Culture, and Community Choice Award along with previous Timmy categories including Best Tech Startup, Best Tech Manager, Best Tech Work Culture, Best Tech Workplace for Diversity, Best Tech Enterprise Employer, and Best Tech for Good. Here’s the rundown of the new categories.

Technology Team of the Year: This award recognizes a subset of your entire tech organization, such as a particular security or software development team, that has demonstrated unwavering dedication to advancing their company's overall mission. A 2024 Tech Team of the Year demonstrates exceptional technical expertise, a clear and aligned purpose, and a proven ability to drive forward projects and technological advancements and play a pivotal role in contributing to the success of the entire tech department. This high-performing tech team stands out in their organization for exemplifying strong leadership, innovation, and collaboration.

Best Remote Work Culture: This award celebrates organizations that have proven remarkable adaptability and resilience-fostering an inclusive, collaborative, and engaged work culture for their remote workforce. Whether they are investing in cutting-edge project management or communication technology, actively promoting a healthy work-life balance, facilitating virtual team bonding activities, or offering regular recognition or check-ins---recipients of this award go above and beyond to ensure their tech talent feel valued and supported. The 2024 Best Remote Work Cultures not only set a new standard for the future of work but also ensure that distance never hinders productivity and unity among their remote tech team.

Community Choice Award: Technologists across North America will be able to vote for their favorite companies and tech workers for the Community Choice Award. Unlike other Timmy Awards, which are decided by a panel of expert judges across all tech fields, the Community Choice Award is decided by you!

In each category, a poll will be put up for the tech community to put in their vote for their favorite company or tech worker. The winner of that vote will receive the brand-new Community Choice Award.

The Tech in Motion and Timmy Award team is thrilled to show you what we have in store for this year’s show. To register interest or if you’re looking to be a part of this year’s event, head to the official Timmys website to learn more. We’ll be releasing more details about the event throughout the spring, and we hope to see you in person for the 2024 Timmy Awards!
