About Us

Engineering is a huge part of what powers a tech company, but let’s make one thing clear: the career possibilities in tech are varied and endless.

We give high school and college women access to real Advisors, exclusive events at top tech companies, and no-fluff resources to help them explore and land their first internship or job.

Lead Software Engineer

We’re looking for a Lead Full Stack Engineer to join the team as our first in-house developer. You’ll get to collaborate directly with the founding team to build out our mentorship platform, WAVE, as well as new products for #BUILTBYGIRLS. You’ll own projects from ideation to deployment, and beyond as we rapidly iterate based on user feedback.

You will work with every part of our tech stack, from architecting core platform services and data models to building out amazing experiences for our end users. You will be involved in all aspects of a growing start-up, and be excited to spearhead the development of the core platform powering #BUILTBYGIRLS. By joining the #BUILTBYGIRLS team, you’ll have the opportunity to work in a startup environment, but get the benefit of a big company culture - and perks.
