It’s time again to honor the most influential software engineers in your local tech community.

Part of’s RealLIST series, the RealLIST Engineers lists are newsroom-curated roundups of influential developers and other technologists. The goal is to highlight meaningful contributors to product development and solving the technical challenges at their workplaces who are also committed to bettering their local tech communities.

Across our markets, we’ve highlighted 200 pros in the first three years of this series. They’re mentors, meetup organizers, company leaders and much more. Check out our 2019 honorees in PhillyBaltimore and DC; 2020 honorees in PhillyBaltimoreDC and Delaware; and our 2021 honorees in PhillyBaltimoreDCDelaware and Pittsburgh.

The RealLIST Engineers lists are returning for 2022, and we want your nominations. We’re looking to include those who not only commit code, but solve problems and build solutions — and who go above and beyond to guide the next generation of technologists. We’ll aim to include those who are both established and below the radar.

Below, please tell us who you think should be on this year’s RealLIST. Submissions will be vetted by a panel of technologists and the newsroom. Note that multiple nominations will not increase the likelihood of being included, and yes, you can nominate yourself, as well as anyone you nominated in years past who didn’t make the final cut. We especially encourage nominations to be written by technologists who can speak to specific technical challenges their nominees have overcome.

Nominations close at 5 p.m. EST on Thursday, Sept. 15. We’ll announce the 2022 RealLIST Engineers in October.
