How were these winners selected?

We invited people driving product growth at the top 200 apps in the Okta Integration Network--which includes over 5,500 integrations with cloud, mobile and web apps, and IT infrastructure providers--to submit to our first-ever Tech Up-and-Comers awards program. The submissions were evaluated and scored by a judging committee that considered each nominee’s experience, innovation, business impact, and problem-solving skills on a 1-5 scale. The ranking was determined by the cumulative final scores. Judges include: Hector Aguilar, President of Technology at Okta; Chee Chew, Chief Product Office at Twilio; and Julie Bort, Chief Tech Correspondent at Business Insider.
