Tech jobs for women only!

https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/com...al-hiring-fair

[SINGAPORE] Women hoping to land a technology job with DBS Bank can apply online starting Tuesday, as the Republic's largest bank seeks to encourage more women in Singapore to build a career in technology.

More than 50 vacancies are available - covering 11 roles including data engineers, scrum masters and full stack developers - at its virtual career fair for women technologists, the bank said on Tuesday.

Applicants will go through an 80-minute online assessment for the roles they are applying for to gauge their technical and planning capabilities.

The online assessments must be submitted by Oct 19.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an online hiring day on Oct 31. They will learn more about the company, including its approach to gender diversity and what it is like to build a career as a female technologist at the bank. The next stage is a virtual interview.

DBS managing director Soh Siew Choo said that women continue to be underrepresented in the technology space globally.

Ms Soh, who is also the bank's head of consumer banking and big data analytics technology, added that the bank wanted to proactively address this by building a pipeline of women technologists in Singapore.

"We have an opportunity to lead by example and demonstrate what companies can do to nurture a more gender-balanced technology workforce," she said.

"Having balanced gender representation is also pivotal to our ongoing digital transformation, as it allows us to tap on diverse ideas to develop differentiated and exceptional experiences for our customers," she added.

just like my previous company, so long got cb, can get into managerial roles. doesnt matter if other MALE candidates have over decades of relevant experiences AND currently working in that field. priorities were given to the women!

so for one dept, the senior manager went to a 29 years old woman, the current and departing manager of 30 years is ousted.

Disgusting.

So now meritocracy is dead? No matter if you have more experience or better qualification.

DBS will reserve a job for you if you belong to female gender?
