It just suddenly occurred to me that we should be blowing a few of our own trumpets and mention that Women’s Tech Hub is up for a SPARKies award this year! YAY!
The SPARKies are Tech Sparks annual event championing the best of tech in the South West, and we have been nominated for Best Start Up! You can see the entire shortlist HERE. We’re in pretty good company!
SO if you are going, have a great evening, and do please cheer when our name is mentioned. There may still be tickets if you are quick – Here’s a link
Newicon got in touch recently as they are looking for a Full Stack Web Developer to join their team and wanted to make sure that plenty of women in tech would see the advert and apply. Needless to say we immediately invited them to come along and give our Free3Friday coffeetalk [MORE INFO HERE], so they are sending Neill Jones along with a couple of packets of biscuits on June 15th at 11am to tell us why you should join their team of designers and full stack developers creating mobile apps and websites in Bristol.
There’s a pdf with all the info from Newicon HERE for you to check out. But don’t just read that, come and talk to Neil on Friday then put in an application – they are starting interviews next week. Continue reading “Opportunity: Full Stack Web Developer with Newicon Bristol”
When we relaunched with our shiny new website at the Spring Social, we also launched our memberships for businesses and individuals. It was great to see our first business members wanting to know more about what we offer them, and absolutely brilliant to have so many immediate individual signups from women with first-hand experience of Women’s Tech Hub ~ Bristol. We are so pleased that it’s not just us who think we offer a whole load of great benefits all for the cost of a couple of coffees (or one cocktail) a month.
We teamed up with Bristol Girl Geek Dinners this week to outline our plans for Women’s Tech Hub in 2018 and beyond at a Spring Social that included re:Launch of our website. We were invited back to the ACCU conference where last year we shared our plans for Women’s Tech Hub, supported again by Bloomberg Tech. We welcomed the chance to share an update about our achievements over the past year, not least of which is supporting more than 30 of our members into new jobs in tech.
