re: "99% of the CVs I get are men." Really? 😳
 

Yes unfortunately, maybe it's something specific in Dublin at the moment but I've always wanted to hire more women to even out the team (as long as they were the right person for the job of course!). I'm hoping more girls are coming through college and that it won't be this way forever.

Also Dublin here. Hired two team members within the past year and we also received maybe 2 CVs from women out of an applicant pool of 40-50.

It's crazy, I'm thinking of looking into doing a talk or visits to secondary level schools to see if the issue is that girls see it as a male dominated industry and that deters them from applying for tech related college courses. I know of the 190 in my year that went to college I was the only one that did something computer related!
