Collaborative working on ‘do good’ projects anyone?

working group women
We know that a lot of our members are currently trying hard to get into the tech industry and could do with some practical support on their upskilling.
So .. we’ve teamed up with the lovely CodeHub lot, who are going to allow us to run teams at their bi-weekly hacks to test out our skills on live projects.  We welcome helpers to support, especially if you have accidentally fallen into a PM role and missing your old skills!
We currently have a charity and a pre-startup health tech company both keen on getting some support.  It is unpaid as we are helping out for charities and non tech groups or WTF members to let us play with their project, help us help one another learn great skills and gain a portfolio.

The first one is this tuesday so short notice but feel free to pop along if you are free or join up to a later one, sign up here CodeHub.

Jobs: Bugsnag (Bath)

Bugsnag are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join their Bath-based team. We met some of the lovely Bugsnaggers when they helped fund our Diversity in Tech event in June, so we believe them when they say they welcome people with “all  experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds” as this will “lead to a finer environment for our employees, our products, and our community.” So, this role is in Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), an “engineering discipline that combines software and systems engineering to build and run large-scale, massively distributed, fault-tolerant systems”. Sounds intriguing?

On Women’s Tech Hub: Ghazal Javed

Entering Women’s Tech Hub meeting place, not only will you find a vibrant, stylish and ‘trendy’ hip workspace in the form of Desklodge but equally smart, diverse, intelligent and ambitious tech women as well. Not knowing what to expect it was quite daunting at first to come to a place you have never been to but the moment I entered Desklodge, I could feel the welcome and openness of the place.
