11 of the Best Places to Find Qualified Women in Tech

Is your company dedicated to diversifying its staff with highly qualified women technology professionals? 

Great! Research shows that women's influence in technology is crucial for innovative product development, thought diversity, and financial health. 

Check out the following resources to find the best women candidates for your technology business.

1. WomenTech Network 

WomenTech Network is one of the largest networks and best places where women in tech can look for positions at companies of all sizes from all over the world. WomenTech Network hosts the annual Women in Tech Conference and Global Awards connecting thousands of candidates with some of the world’s best companies to work for in tech.

2. LinkedIn

It might technically be a social media platform, but LinkedIn remains one of the best recruitment systems, too. LinkedIn Recruiter gives companies access to recommended matches for your job posts, direct messaging, and other recruiting management tools to organize and expedite the process.

Company executives can also search for qualified candidates independently without using LinkedIn's recruitment tools. Search for keywords related to your position to pull relevant candidates and view their profiles, work histories, accolades, and more.

3. Tech Ladies

Tech Ladies is one of the most well-known and reputable online communities for women in tech. Industry-leading companies like PayPal, Zapier, and Samsung use Tech Ladies to find more women for their teams.

Women can join for free to network with other women in the industry and access members-only jobs. If you're interested in posting a job as a Tech Ladies partner company, fill out the quick interest form on the website. 

4. Mogul

Mogul is not just for recruiting women, nor is it only for the tech industry. However, its primary focus is diversity in the workplace, providing a "platform for women and minorities to launch collaborations, find professional opportunities, and form meaningful relationships," according to its website. 

In addition to adding jobs, companies can take advantage of the free community by posting news and resources. With the right content strategy, you could capture the attention of tech-focused women who want to work with your company. 

5. Remote Woman

Companies looking specifically for remote-working women can post a job on Remote Woman. The site curates jobs from across the web from more than 200 companies, but you can also post open positions directly. Marketing, design, and development are a few popular job categories here.  

6. Elpha

First and foremost, Elpha offers a professional development community for women — including anyone who identifies as a woman — across all industries. Women can participate in forums, browse resources, and search salary databases on the site.

Secondarily, Elpha includes a talent pool of 50,000+ skilled women who are open to opportunities in their fields. Companies can become Elpha partners to post job openings by filling out the website form.

7. Diversify Tech

As its name suggests, Diversify Tech seeks to diversify the industry's workforce, empowering women and minority groups to find jobs and develop their professional network. As an employer, you can share free resources with the community or post a job to the site's more than 12,000 members.

Pricing starts at $99 for nonprofits and $149 for other organizations.

InHerSight lets women professionals search business ratings from other women and get matched with ideal job opportunities across multiple industries, including tech. 

When you partner with InHerSight to post your job opportunities, you'll gain access to several valuable tools to increase your ability to find qualified candidates, such as data insights and email marketing. You'll also gain a spot on the company directory so that job-seekers can view your business ratings and learn more about your women-focused perks.

9. Twitter

Like LinkedIn, Twitter has a large presence of technology professionals. With a decent following on Twitter, you could gather several leads for open positions just by sending out a tweet calling for candidates. Use popular recruitment hashtags, like #techjobs, #hiring, or #recruitment, to get more visibility on your tweet.

Twitter's advanced search can also help you narrow options to search potential candidates based on keywords and relevant profiles.

Github, Spectrum, and Yelp are just a few companies that use PowerToFly to find the best candidates for their positions. According to the website, "We are women-led, intersectional and focus on empowering underrepresented talent across all races, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, veteran statuses and gender identities. We welcome allies."
