Nominate Your Emerging Engineering Leader 2021

HotTopics.ht and Logz.io are excited to announce we are accepting nominations for the Emerging Engineering Leaders 100 2021.

The technology, operations and innovation teams are paramount to the continued success of leading businesses, both emerging and global. Together, they design, build and activate solutions, products and architectures that further the customer and client experience, secure the business and its teams, and work agily to enable the proper day-to-day functioning of companies as well as add to the continuous improvements of its annual growth. It goes without saying they should be celebrated, therefore. 

Emerging talent, however, is even more precious. These are the future of business success, and besides their executive leaders—who HotTopics.ht is well versed in celebrating and showcasing within our global 100 lists—are just as deserving of discovery amongst their peers as individuals doing exceptional work for their companies and for the industry itself. It is with this spirit that the Emerging Engineering Leaders 100 2021 seeks to discover, using your nominations, the 100 individuals spearheading engineering and DevOps talent.

The nomination window will be open from Monday 19th July to midnight (BST) on Thursday September 9th. Within this window we are accepting nominations of relevant individuals, subject to the list of criteria, below. 

Judges and Criteria

Our official Judges—to be confirmed and updated onto this page in due course—will then sift through your nominations to select the final 100 who they believe deserve their position in the Emerging Engineering Leaders 100 2021.

Please review the following criteria before nominating your peers:


  • A VP/Director of, or equivalent position, within engineering, DevOps and equivalent remits; 
  • Showing great capacity for excellent design and methodology, proven with successful software solutions;
  • Is an emerging thought leader around automation, software development and/or IT operations;
  • Is an advocate for purpose-driven business, diversity and an inclusive working culture. 


We can’t wait to receive your nominations for this vital and emerging collective talent.

These emerging leaders are combining cultural philosophies, practices and tools to increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services rapidly, whilst evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This is what enables customers and clients to do more with the businesses they engage with and is a critical cornerstone of the modern world. Nominate your emerging engineering leader and help them get recognized for the work they do in underpinning that cornerstone.
