Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Dec. 6, 2017

With 2017 coming to a close, it doesn't seem possible that more scandals could erupt surrounding women- but it's happening. There's a new controversy brewing on the daily, and now with CES, the largest technology show in the world omitting female keynote speakers from it's program, we're taking three steps back instead of one giant leap forward. Thankfully, we're out to change that. We're filling our blog and your inboxes with stories of truly inspiring women, like Emily Jones, the first female engineer on her team at Zapier, and calling out companies like LinkedIn who completely neglected to include a photo of an African American in its diversity report (uh… what?!). 2018 is going to be a pivotal year for women- and it's time for us to take our seat at the table, or in Meghan Markel's words, "Where a seat isn't available, well you know what? Then we need to create our own table". Create your own table, or find a seat at a table with a company that cares here.

FEATURED COMPANY THAT CARES: KARAT

Karat was founded on the premise that the interview process is the gateway to innovation. And who better to innovate in hiring engineers for tech companies than actual engineers? Karat also allows for loads of flexibility and remote opportunities, perfect, well, for anybody. On-the-job training, off-site retreats and a chance to really help talented people from all walks of life round out the reasons why Karat is a company that cares for sure.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

The Outlook That Helps CSL’s Paula Manchester Invest in Herself and Her Team

If you told Paula Manchester that you weren't good at math, she wouldn't believe you.

"That's a global indictment," she says. "'I'm not good at math' implies that you don't have the ability to nurture that muscle. And then I'd ask what kind of math? There's a lot to math."

Emma started her career in the world of telecommunications, moving from IC to team manager, then to contract positions when she had her children and needed flexible scheduling. Now in her current role as an Engineering Manager at payment platform Afterpay, Emma continues to find ways to manage her personal and professional growth, and her family's well-being.

5 Things All Product Managers Should Do for Their Engineers (And Vice Versa)

Tips from SeatGeek's Anuja Chavan

When Anuja Chaven turns on a fan in her house in Jersey City, she can't help but think about how every piece of it works.

"There are an extensive amount of things that have to go perfectly at the same time," says the former engineer (and current product manager at live event ticketing platform SeatGeek).

It was that interest in understanding how things actually worked that drove Anuja to study engineering—first electrical, during her undergrad in India, and then computer science, during her master's program in the U.S.
