Rise Awards is an awards event celebrating top talent across all positions at tech companies. There will be 15 winners in 15 categories each, as chosen by the crowd, judges, and us. There will also be company awards for companies with the most nominees.

The Rise Awards were built to celebrate the most talented people—from engineers and designers, to marketers and product managers. We’re looking for the best of the best across roles and at every level.
Who is one of the most talented people you’ve worked with? Nominate them today!
We encourage you to nominate anyone you think is dope and does dope work. If they are nominated more than five times (even if they don’t fall in one of the 15 Rise Awards categories), they will still be granted Rise Awards VIP access. Most importantly, they’ll receive a note about your nomination—which you can choose to be sent by you or anonymously.
There are 15 initial Rise Awards categories. You can certainly nominate someone who doesn’t fall squarely in one of our categories, and we’ll consider those nominations. The nomination process will last two months.
You can, indeed. To join us for one of the Rise meetup events, all you have to do is become a Rise Awards VIP, which happens in one of two (or both!) ways: nominate five or more people, or be nominated by five or more people.
Erik Torenberg, Melissa Joy Kong, Ben Vishny, Raj Vir, Naitik Mehta, Laz Alberto, and Alvin Hsia.

Think of the Company Rise Awards as the Michelin rating of the tech world. Our aim is to recognize the best companies to work for based on the incredible talent they employ. There are a number of things that make a company great, but talent—and the way it’s fostered in a work environment—is at the top of the list.
Company Rise Awards winners will be selected based on the number of nominations on a given team divided by team size.
