Women Take Tech: Nadia Mahgerefteh with WeAreTechWomen

To celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, Nadia Mahgerefteh, Full Stack Software Developer at Solidatus – spoke with WeAreTechWomen as part of their Inspirational Women campaign. 

Nadia caught up with the publication to reflect on her studies in Computer Science, the driving force behind her move into tech and the obstacles she overcame to build a career:

“I read somewhere that women tend not to apply for roles unless they meet 100% of the job criteria, whereas men apply once they reach around 60%, so that was a huge learning point for me. I had to remind myself that I had worked hard and I did have the experience, sometimes more then I give myself credit for.”

She also discusses what she thinks companies can do to support the progress of the careers and development of women working in our industry, as well as how individuals can excel in their careers through mentorship and networking.
