TechLadies is a community-led initiative for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance in the tech industry. We are a group of friends who love technology and believe that gender should not stop anyone from experiencing programming and succeeding in the tech industry.
Our mission is to increase women’s participation and create equal opportunities for women in the tech industry. We want to provide women the community, education, and the opportunity to become better engineers, product managers, and designers.
Since our launch in 2016, we have built up an amazing international community in Asia and empowered women to switch careers into tech. To increase the impact of our work and help more women, we need your help!
A lot of people have come together to TechLadies happen, and this role coordinates them all! You will help to design the volunteer recruitment process, select, onboard and assign volunteers to roles or events they can best shine in!
Ideal Profile: You should ideally have good interpersonal skills and enjoy interacting with people.
Event coordinators plan and create amazing TechLadies events! You will be in charge of planning the events calendar, sourcing logistics vendors, working with the Partnerships Manager to secure logistics and financial support, and working with the event leads to design kickass event experiences.
Ideal Profile: You should have experiences organising mid to large size events (community events count!), and passionate about designing event experiences for women in tech.
Our partners chip in for venues, speakers, swags, cash, and mentors so that TechLadies can continue to do what we do. You will source for potential partners, guide and support our partners, and ensure that our partners are taken care of.
Ideal Profile: You should ideally be somewhat well-spoken and although we don’t sell anything, having sales experiences would be helpful. Our partners understand that we aren’t available to meet during office hours, so don’t worry about having to take time off work for this!
Editors own the different content categories on the TechLadies blog. You will be researching what content we should publish, guide writers, and decide on the publishing schedule. Depending on the content category, we may need editors to have basic programming knowledge.
Ideal Profile: You should ideally have some marketing or writing background!
Help lead our annual program, the TechLadies Bootcamp! This is by far our most impactful program, having helped 9 women switch careers into software engineering. Bootcamp Organisers are the people behind this magic. You will be sourcing for NGOs and coaches, market, and run the bootcamp. It’s time-consuming but very rewarding. Don’t worry, we have a playbook ready.
Ideal Profile: You should be able to commit to organising the bootcamp, getting your hands dirty to learn from doing!
TechLadies is a community - and this role is the heart of it! You will be taking care of our community, providing timely resources and updates to our members via our Facebook group and newsletters. You come up with creative ideas to engage with the community and have the resources to execute on your ideas!
Ideal Profile: You should ideally be comfortable with social media (namely Facebook), writing, or marketing and love interacting with people online!
A lot of people have come together to TechLadies happen; it would be a pity if nobody knows about it! We want more women to know about TechLadies, that they have a community to learn programming with, to discuss challenges they have, and to celebrate their wins with! You will plan and execute media campaigns to increase awareness of TechLadies.
Ideal Profile: You should ideally have some (paid or organic) marketing experiences.
We are currently looking for chapter leaders who want to bring TechLadies to their home city! You will be in charge of all things TechLadies in your home city, supported by TechLadies Singapore.
Ideal Profile: You are passionate and committed to bringing change in their community with TechLadies. You should be able to pull in resources, such as venue and coaches, for TechLadies events. A programming background is not required.
We have a friendly, casual environment where volunteers can learn new skills and contribute to increasing women’s participation in the tech industry. If this aligns with your passion and interest, join us!
TechLadies welcome people of all genders to join our team! You also do not need to have a programming background in order to contribute.
You can expect to make a difference with like-minded people passionate in the same cause! We will meet up every month to plan activities and share ideas. Beyond that, we would like to thank your time and skills by:
Everyone has other priorities in life - our careers, family, and other interests. We get it! We can tailor your volunteering experience to what you're comfortable in contributing.
