Luxembourg-based tech recruitment platform nexten.io is launching the second annual edition of its Tech Talent of the Year award. The prize, first awarded in 2019 during ITnation’s Golden-i gala, recognizes the country’s best and brightest tech leaders for their outstanding achievements.
Shining a light on the real talent behind the computer screens
The Tech Talent of the Year award aims to shine a spotlight on the technical talents of the industry, the individuals behind the computer screens, from Tech Leads to CTOs.
“At nexten.io we root for the real doers in tech, the ones wearing the t-shirts,” says Anissa Lechaudel, Brand Manager. “We not only help them find new job opportunities through our platform, but also aim to help build up the tech community by recognizing the contributions of its talented members.”
Last year’s inaugural edition listed 60 tech talents in the running and over 4000 members of the community took part in the voting to choose the five finalists. An advisory board made up of top industry experts from companies including PwC, KPMG and Mangrove then selected the winner, Georges Berscheid, Co-Founder and CTO of Luxembourg FinTech startup Finologee (see our article “Finologee’s CTO Georges Berscheid awarded Tech Talent of the Year“).
Nominations open until August 2nd
Companies are encouraged to nominate their top talent, the ones who have gone the extra mile in their work to make a difference this year. Individuals can also nominate themselves to be considered for the award. Applications will be accepted by email between July 15th and August 2nd, 2020.
Community voting will take place through the month of August on social media, with the five candidates who receive the most votes moving on to the next round.
The finalists will then give a presentation before a jury of industry experts in mid-September, with the winner of the Tech Talent of the Year announced at the Golden-i awards ceremony on September 24th, 2020.
