Commiting to create a future for women in technology

We are constantly looking for new talents to bring to the FutureFunded community. Sometimes we look for them, sometimes they find us but in both cases there will be an interview! I know this step can sound a bit scary at first for some aspirants but, truth is, the interview is only a first step to the FutureFunded journey. The first interview (which is our way to get to know you better) is just an opening door, because more than uploading a profile online and waiting for money to rain, our process includes being at our aspirants’ side and guiding them in order to orchestrate a great campaign.

We look for committed, curious and proactive women. We look for those who are aware of the role technology has in our lives and want to be part of designing our future. From different cultures and with different backgrounds, what all aspirants seem to have in common is their passion for technology and how empowered they feel when learning to create new solutions with their skills and knowledge. We want to know about their motivations, their ambitions and their challenges.

The challenges seem to differ from one case to another, but during their time working together with FutureFunded, they also develop their soft skills. From project management to team work, we are constantly using creative thinking to tackle the challenges of raising funds for the tech education course they want to pursue.

A campaign rewards backers with specific deliverables which they can choose from, depending on what better fits their needs. This perks of the campaign can unfold into first clients, which the aspirants learn how to interact and deal with. The aspirants start to deliver projects and build a portfolio at the same time that they still look for new backers for their campaign.

I love finishing each interview with the feeling that the aspirants found exactly what they have been looking for: a safe space to be a woman in the tech world.

So, for all the curious brains out there who get excited about pretty lines of code, new technologies and are passionate about problem solving – there is a place for you, too.
