Skillz SVP of Engineering Wins Timmy Award for Best Tech Manager!

The Timmy Awards, hosted by Tech in Motion, recognize the companies and individuals leading the way to create the best places for technology professionals to work. Each year, the event brings tech communities together from across the world to learn, collaborate, and innovate.

This year, Skillz was represented with finalist honors for two Timmy Awards in the San Francisco Bay Area: Skillz for Best Tech Workplace for Diversity and our SVP of Engineering Miriam Aguirre as Best Tech Manager. After a three-week-long voting period, Miriam won Best Tech Manager and Skillz was the runner-up for Best Tech Workplace for Diversity!

As a finalist in her category, Miriam attended the Timmy Awards ceremony – it kicked off with appetizers, music, and networking, where she enjoyed speaking with other honorees and company representatives from the tech industry. The ceremony, hosted by actress and comedian Kate Willett, announced the winners and runners-up in each of the four categories. After being named Best Tech Manager, Miriam gave a short speech, talking about how she has grown as a manager and hopes to inspire others to join the industry and build the future of technology.

The event concluded with more great food and drinks, and Miriam was happy to have a few fellow Skillzians in attendance to celebrate her achievement. She was honored by the recognition, both for herself as Best Tech Manager and for Skillz as the runner-up for Best Tech Workplace for Diversity. Big congratulations to all of the other finalists and winners!
