I wasn't sure what "post-meritocracy" is so I googled it and came across this - postmeritocracy.org/ - which in its manifest contains this sentence that is more or less the point:

But meritocracy has consistently shown itself to mainly benefit those with privilege, to the exclusion of underrepresented people in technology. The idea of merit is in fact never clearly defined; rather, it seems to be a form of recognition, an acknowledgement that “this person is valuable insofar as they are like me.”

their resource page contains a few articles with criticism: postmeritocracy.org/meritocracy/

and don't think it's an issue limited to tech companies: Academia is not a meritocracy
