the customers’ expectations — and half the customers are women

thing to do

A 2018 study by McKinsey and Company, showed that having women on your team isn’t just a solid ethical choice.
Delivering through Diversity »

It’s also a good business decision.

In fact, having women on your team makes your company:

More creative in solving problems

More productive and efficient

More profitable overall

Do these problems sound familiar?

We often hear, “Many women coming into tech are junior developers.
We can’t justify hiring them.”

We don’t have the staffing to mentor now.

How will a junior developer be able to comprehend and solve these complex technical issues?

A junior developer doesn’t have the skills to dive into our code. How can they be helpful?

A junior developer will only slow down the team. We can’t risk that.

These are valid concerns, and we have a solution

We employ women to work on your projects, paired with one of our senior developers. Using our method:

Companies Who Already Think Reactive

Our program addresses all your questions about hiring a new graduate of a coding bootcamp. How?

I loved mentoring for This Dot. It was an amazing experience for a new developer to work on real freelance projects and be able to mentor them along as we went through real-life problems and being able to see a project through until the end. You'll be able to tackle problems that only come from real-life scenarios.
