We interviewed Dipti Choudhary, Cloud Engineer at Vantage Point on her experience and thoughts on women in tech.
Creating and maintaining cloud infrastructure, creating pipelines for auto motion.
It’s interesting and I enjoy encountering new challenges every day.
Yes, men are seemingly encouraged to do programming and there’s often the illusion that women can’t code. Even in Tech roles women are more likely to be given the roles that are less likely to involve coding.
Fantastic career opportunities. There are always new and exciting learning opportunities within tech. Working from home, great for managing a work/life balance.
Time constraints can be demanding, and this can be a challenge balancing work/ongoing training and family life, this can be an issue for women going back to work after having a family. There seem to be more opportunities for men wanting to progress in their career and focus on career development, particularly in male-centric (tech and finance) roles.
Encourage women to give it a go and make them realise that they have made a good decision by showing them the job opportunities as well as demonstrating how enjoyable, interesting, challenging, and fulfilling a career in tech is.
If you are creative, a keen learner, love a fast-paced, ever-changing work environment, flexibility good salary, opportunity for career progression – then get into tech! Let’s bridge the gender-gap! It’s wonderful being a female tech-savvy coding specialist.
