We are building pretty amazing features and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating some of their free time to making tech a place where women can excel.
You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.
We launched our Job Board as beta in July 2016, since we've been spending time chatting with our users (customers and members) about their
wants with our product. We've been presented with a set of questions, some of which translated into a particular theme, which we started exploring last week, experience levels. Both members and job posters want to have a better understanding of experience levels. For the member, they want to understand which job matches their experience level. For the job poster, they want to identify which member has the experience level they are looking for. In an industry where an engineering title can have more to do with the company's size, location, and organizational structure rather than skills; quantifying a standard that works for our members means, we have to first engage our members in the process. As a result, started with a survey, where our members could match sentences (and sentence fragments) with an experience level. These are the results!
We are determining next steps, and will move onto asking now, job posters what their perceptions of experience levels are in the coming weeks. We look forward to sharing more complete data soon.
Thank you to our members who participated in last weeks survey! If you have anything to add to this discussion please feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org or if you are a contributor please bring it up on our Slack channel.
Our repo is private, yet running under an open source license. Instead of pointing to issues and PRs, we are going to include a screenshot of what our weekly pulse looks like.
Existing website contributors, please check out our pulse!
Potential website contributors, please email email@example.com with your github username to get started. It's built in Ruby on Rails + React + Postgresql.
This weeks sprint included adding new stack tags to the Job Board and hot fixes.
WWCode job board plan shift!
We've spent that last couple of weeks listening to our customers, both our members (engineers) and employers (companies) about their experience with our job board. In the coming weeks we'll start to see shifts in the product related to your feedback.
Thank you for all your support as we continue to make womenwhocode.com the place we go to reach the careers we want.
To submit feedback, comments or questions email firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear from you.
