ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tech in Motion named Ostendio a 2020 finalist for Best Tech Work Culture and Ostendio CEO, Grant Elliott, as Best Tech Manager in the 6th annual Timmy Awards, which recognizes great workplaces for tech professionals. For Ostendio and all the finalists chosen, it’s about far more than “perks” when it comes to a rewarding team environment; it’s about a shared mission, meaningful recognition and promoting innovation, learning and technical creativity. Washington DC’s community can vote here through Sept. 30 for who will represent them as the Regional Winner at the national round, judged by experts from companies like Netflix and Oracle and announced at the Timmy’s first virtual ceremony in October.

“From the beginning, building an outstanding work culture has been important to the Ostendio founders,” said Grant Elliott, CEO and chairman, Ostendio. “The continued growth of Ostendio is a credit to our diverse team who share our mission, understand our goals, and enjoy working and volunteering together. Being a finalist in two Timmy categories is a great acknowledgement of the fantastic work the team has accomplished.”
