DBS launches inaugural Hack2Hire-Her to attract more women in tech

DBS Bank’s Hack2Hire programme is back with a new woman-centric launch, Hack2Hire-Her.

According to a press release, about 5% of Hack2Hire applicants in the past two years were women. As a result, DBS decided to launch Hack2Hire-Her to reach out to an even bigger pool of women applicants, in partnership with ThoughtWorks, Girls in Tech and Coding girls.

At the same time, Amazon Web Services, Cloudera and Pivotal will continue supporting the programme as platform partners.

The inaugural programme aims to hire as many technologists as possible across 10 roles (both men and women), including chaos engineers¹  and security engineers. It will be held in conjunction with International Women’s Day this March, and participants will be challenged to create an intelligent bank. The bank will also be hosting a two-week festival featuring talks and events on gender diversity.

Soh Siew Choo, Managing Director and Head of Consumer Banking and Big Data Analytics Technology at DBS, said: “Females continue to be under-represented in the technology space. Companies and leaders, both male and female, need to continue to make greater effort to support gender diversity and attract women as they bring different skillsets and perspectives to traditionally male-dominated tech and finance industries.”
