Earlier this month, we celebrated the Alli Engineering Awards, an internal program that honors the outstanding achievements of our software engineers and cross-functional team members every quarter. The awards span five categories: Innovation Trailblazers, Development Excellence, Collaboration, Mentorship & Leadership, and Mountain Movers, with honorees hailing from various teams across the organization.

Recipients of this quarter's Alli Engineering Awards were given a unique hourglass award that not only signifies their efforts but underscores PMG’s vision to be the most respected global independent digital company powered by technology and amazing people. The hourglass serves as a poignant reminder that the window to fully embrace artificial intelligence (AI) and emerging technologies is quickly narrowing as the industry continues to evolve. In celebration of these honorees, we hosted an incredibly fun awards ceremony and event in the PMG Dallas Office with the entire team.
