Reasons to request to be on the homepage for the official release:
Help engineers see why your company is great and admirable (this is only available to companies that we already selected for the Breakout List, which means we believe your company is high quality)
Help you meet your hiring goals so your company wins
Some companies on the list may be eligible for this to get better exposure to candidates, in return for becoming a hiring partner and passing even-stricter-than-normal standards and vetting.
Sorry, this is only for companies that are already listed on the Breakout List.
