Every year, the Austin Chamber and SXSW host the Austin A-List Awards, which celebrates and promotes Austin’s top innovative, homegrown companies and leaders. The event highlights both tech and non-tech companies.
Austin is home to a unique and collaborative business community. We are working to highlighting them in a variety of ways including through a commitment to make A-List an enduring honor by staying in touch with and highlighting our winners throughout the year.
As we approach this year’s Austin A-List Awards on May 23 at ACL Live @ the Moody Theater, we are looking each week at a different 2018 winner.
When selecting winners, our judges evaluate nominees on the following criteria:
Innovation: How novel/innovative is the company’s core idea?
Achievability: How achievable/practical is the idea? Can it be delivered?
Sustainability: Is the company sourcing properly with thoughts on its impact to the environment?
Growth: Will the company scale over time?
Leadership: Does the company have the right leadership to execute?
2018 Mid-Size Winner: PullRequest
PullRequest has had an exciting year. As the team across America has nearly tripled, the company has outgrown its East Side office space and moved into the top floor of the Perry Brooks building in downtown Austin. They have launched candidate technical reviews for screening applicants at scale and expanded its reviewer network to support 14 additional programming languages and frameworks.
