Currently, only 25% of coding jobs are held by women, who also earn 30% less than men in the field. Historically, the tech industry has been dominated by men, making women feel unwelcome and discouraged from starting their coding journey.
At SheCodes, we're determined to change these numbers. We provide a safe and supportive learning environment, empowering women to gain relevant knowledge for today's tech job market. Our community fosters collaboration and support, helping women break into the industry with confidence in their skills.
At SheCodes, we believe in working hard and enjoying life to the fullest. Our customers are at the forefront of everything we do, and we have a genuine love for emojis. 😍 Here are the key characteristics that define our team and give you a sneak peek behind the scenes:
