Ladies, flex your tech know-how and win a trip to the West Coast. Mobile payment pioneer Square is holding a contest for a three day, expense-paid engineering intensive at their San Francisco headquarters — and men need not apply. It's no secret that the world needs more women engineers, and Square is intent on building a brighter future for females in the tech industry. The first annual Code Camp at Square will host 15 of the top female applicants for coding workshops, mentorship sessions with Square executives, plus a little R&R with a tour of Bay Area landmarks.
Women aged 18 or older and enrolled as a full-time student pursuing a computer science, computer engineering or related technical degree, are eligible to enter the contest. Interested applicants must submit a resume and answer several short essay questions online by 5 p.m. PST on Friday, Nov. 2. Empowering more women to pursue tech-related fields? Talk about a cause close to our hearts!
