About the Timmy Awards

Since its inception in 2015, the Timmy Awards mission has been simple - to celebrate the best places for tech professionals to work. 9 years later, the Timmys now honors excellence across 8 best in tech awards: Best Tech Startup, Manager, Work Culture, Enterprise Employer, Workplace for Diversity, Tech Team of the Year, Remote Work Culture, and Tech for Good.

Today, the Timmy Awards have become a highly sought-after recognition for startups and the Fortune 500 alike, with over 1,200 companies nominated last year alone. This is our ultimate tribute to tech and an opportunity to celebrate the incredible ongoing evolution in this industry.

How it Works


The Timmy Awards nomination process allows you to either complete the entire application in one sitting or come back to it at a better time! The nomination form first collects general company information and then dives deeper into why your company deserves to win a Timmy Award. You should have the following information available when filling out your nomination: company logo and/or manager’s headshot, company details (such as location, website etc.), and specific insight into why your nominee deserves to win. We encourage you to nominate a company or tech manager in any applicable award category, free of cost.

Finalist Selection

Once nominations close, finalists will be chosen in each category based on application quality and relevance. The likelihood that a nominee is chosen as a finalist does not increase based on the number of applications, but rather, is based on merit and quality of the application.

Community Choice

All Timmy Award Finalists will have the opportunity to win a "Community Choice" award in their category. These winners will be selected by popular vote.

Expert Judging & Winner Selection

Finalists in each category will be evaluated based on answers provided in their nomination by our panel of esteemed judges. The highest score in each category will take home the trophy!

Awards Ceremony

The 2024 Timmy Awards Ceremony will be a very special, new experience. We will honor this year’s best tech startups, managers, and employers, as well as those who are using technology to make the world a better place at a live, in-person ceremony. This ceremony will also be live-streamed so that you and your team can tune in from anywhere! The day of the ceremony will also include pre-event panels, workshops, and networking opportunities. Guest speakers from Google, Netflix, Siri and more will announce winners for this year's tech award categories, selected from over 500 nominees across North America.
