Alpha Geek

Definition - What does Alpha Geek mean?

Alpha geek is a slang term for the most tech savvy person within a group. Once identified, an alpha geek becomes the go-to for all problems, issues and advice when it comes to technology.

An especially tech savvy alpha geek may be called a geek’s geek or the head geek. Essentially, this is the person that tech geeks go to when they have a problem.

Techopedia explains Alpha Geek

Although it is a tongue-in-cheek way of describing someone with more technological expertise than everyone else, alpha geeks serve several important functions. First, they are usually mavens within their groups, meaning that the technologies they adopt and endorse are likely to spread through their networks. Two, alpha geeks within an office or business that is not traditionally tech-based can help find solutions that fit that particular business. Having the alpha geek vote can make a huge difference for companies selling technology to the public or business.
