We interviewed Molly Macgregor, Senior Business Analyst at Globacap on her experience and thoughts on women in tech.
Taking high level requirements from our leadership team to scope out and translate to our technical team to build. Managing our software releases, supporting our product management software and a touch of project management when required.
I did not really choose this career but fell into it accidently. I was in the right place at the right time and was offered an amazing opportunity I could not turn down.
No, I went down the creative root at school. I am a self-starter through and through and a big believer of ‘on the job education’.
Yes, I had already been working in tech for 3 years prior to my current role.
Yes currently, the workplace is certainly a more male dominated space, however even in my short career to date I have started to see that changing.
I believe the perception is definitely changing in the right direction, but the remnants of a more male dominated society are still occasionally is visible in workplace.
Show casing all the different aspects of tech more thoroughly; tech crosses all sectors so to understand that tech can let you be creative, mathematical, financial and so many other things would be excellent.
I have not necessarily come across any personally as I have a strong conviction in my abilities and what I am able to achieve professionally however I have seen colleagues and friends unintentionally limit themselves as women in tech.
Show case the fun side of IT, the diversity of roles possible and where a career can lead to (and that it is not being stuck in a basement fixing laptops).
