Ambassador Labs Wins 2020 Tech Trailblazers Award in Developer Category

December 8, 2020 | 3 min read

Boston, MA - December 8, 2020 - Tech Trailblazers, a global awards program focused on enterprise technology startups, today announced Ambassador Labs as the winner in the Developer category. This is the first year that the Developer category has been open; it's intended to recognize companies that are nurturing their developers and giving them the tools and experience to succeed.

The Tech Trailblazer Awards are open to early-stage startups, less than six-years-old, that are privately funded or have not gone past Series C funding. The program intends to recognize tech, commercial, and entrepreneurial distinction. Previous Tech Trailblazer Awards winners include Shift Left, Aqua Security, and Confluent.

"We are developer-first in everything we do, so it's very gratifying to win a Tech Trailblazer award in the Developer category, particularly considering the great organizations we were up against," said Richard Li, CEO of Ambassador Labs. "I am incredibly proud of our engineers, not just for the work they do, but also for their embrace of our core values. We do things differently at Ambassador Labs, and that wouldn't be possible without our great developer team."

Ambassador Labs recently closed a round of funding and is actively seeking engineers, developer advocates, technical strategic alliances managers, and support engineers.
