Are you hiring?

If you’re open to new ways of generating many, highly qualified female software engineering applications to your open jobs, and talented young women and returners eager to do a technical apprenticeship program, I would love to meet with you to discuss this further.

Please do drop us a line if you’re happy to have an initial conversation, please get in touch here before July 1st, but the earlier the better. If you send us a direct contact number, we’ll happily call and we can arrange to speak or meet.

Should you have anything else you need to know, feel welcome to ask on our Facebook page @ 1millionwomentotech. Thank you and see you during the Summer of Code! 🙂
