Tech in Motion announces top local companies for diversity in tech and opens voting to the public

Toronto, ON (September 12, 2019) – Tech in Motion has chosen Rubikloud as a finalist for this year’s Best Tech Workplace for Diversity category for its annual Timmy Awards, which recognizes the top workplaces for tech professionals. Two Workplace for Diversity awards will be announced at a live ceremony this October. The local community can determine who will be crowned with the Community Favorite award by voting here until September 27th, while the Judge’s Choice winner will be chosen by a panel of expert judges.

The selection criteria for the Best Tech Workplace for Diversity​ is based on the following:

• Implementation of diverse hiring and employment practices

• Collaboration and inclusive thinking to produce an innovative product

• Provision of tools and resources to explore and celebrate differences ​

“We’re excited to have not one, but two awards recognizing diverse thinking and collaboration this year. Getting the opportunity to celebrate the inclusion, innovation and growth in the community through the Timmy Awards is beyond exciting,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Motion Recruitment, creator of Tech in Motion. “Companies have realized diversity is a necessary ingredient for company creativity and success, and we’re looking forward to recognizing that.”

“We believe that everyone has a story, a history and a unique combination of experience and skill that has culminated into who they are today,” said Kate Railton, Rubikloud VP of People and Ops. “Whether it’s a PhD in quantum physics or being self-taught, whether you are new to Canada, an expectant parent, starting your first job or are seasoned subject matter expert, the diversity of background and experience our Krew bring with them to Rubikloud makes our product and our company better.” 

Rubikloud offers its employees competitive compensation, unlimited vacation, extended healthcare, dental and vision plans, paid parental leave for birth mothers or partners, and a lifestyle spending account.
