Philadelphia (August 25, 2017) – Tech in Motion Philadelphia announced Webjunto as a finalist for the “Best Technology Workplace for Diversity” category for its Second Annual Timmy Awards, which recognizes the top workplaces for tech professionals.

“The Timmy Awards aim to celebrate the companies and managers that make that technological innovation possible,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion> and Motion Recruitment Partners. “Since the Timmy Awards were created in 2015, over 400 finalists have been celebrated for creating work environments that enable growth in the technology of various industries.”
The local community can vote online through September 8 to help choose who represents the best of Philly tech. The winners will be chosen through a panel of expert judges and community votes. A complete list of 2017 Philadelphia finalists for the Timmys can be found here for all four award categories, highlighting tech work culture, workplace diversity and management as well as startups.
