Voicebot describes those included in the list as "innovative professionals with conviction and tireless effort that is driving the industry forward," who are "in the vanguard of the voice assistant era." The Founder, President and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, tops the list.
On their website, the Voicebot team explains why Wilson and Wilson were selected out of hundreds of candidates:
"At the 2020 Project Voice Awards, Sarah Andrew Wilson held the stage more often than any other participant as Matchbox.io took home four awards, including Gaming Voice Developer of the Year, Amazon Alexa Developer of the Year, and Gaming Voice Experience of the Year. Sarah was also named an Alexa Champion in 2020 and oversees the content development for the company’s entire voice app portfolio, including Question of the Day, a voice app used daily by more than 100,000 people.
"Joel Wilson founded Matchbox.io in 2015 and has become one of the most successful developers for Alexa and Google Assistant, leveraging his deep knowledge of data analytics to continually improve the reception and performance of the company’s growing list of voice interactive education and gaming titles.
"Over the past year, Joel and Sarah have launched new games, integrated the acquisition of Opearlo titles into Matchbox.io’s portfolio, introduced the Question of the Day podcast and flash briefing, and even launched a new mobile app called Socratix. The new app includes mobile access to Question of the Day and also offers the ability to connect with friends for trivia competitions and track individual statistics."
