For the fourth instalment of our She-TO Boost blog series, we’re so excited to announce Ebru: CTO Boost’s UX/UI Design Extraordinaire! Ebru’s slick design skills and astonishing innovation shines through in every project that she puts her creative touch on. Not only is she a skilled UX/UI designer, a fan of a quick midday shopping trip, and an avid traveller, but she’s also a professional at all things video game related. On a Thursday afternoon, you can catch our Turkish Delight Ebru beating everyone in the office in Mario Kart – even the Devs.
A year ago today, Ali came to CTO Boost as an Executive Assistant but quickly moved into her current role as Project Coordinator. Armed with beautifully crafted flashcards and her healing crystals, Ali fills our office with an unmatchable amount of organization, positivity, and passion. She’s also the first person in the office to lend a helping hand to someone in need, or to offer up a quick lesson on yoga and all things spirituality. When Ali isn’t at the office growing her knowledge of project management, you can find her belting out a song at a pub, or constructing a piece of jewellery out of recyclables.

For many organizations – especially start-ups – small teams are often challenged with the task of managing a large workload, as well as other life responsibilities.

The tech industry is vibrant and growing, yet we still don’t hear that much about everyday women working in tech. We felt it was important to share the experiences of all the wonderful women we work with and their careers in the tech industry this far.
Demand in the IT sector is high and there’s no shortage of competitive offerings when it comes to salary and perks. So how do you attract and keep the best talent?
Let’s face it, regulatory compliance is like the broccoli on a five-year-old’s dinner plate (that glaring thing you hate, but you’re forced to swallow).
You know the ‘techie’ stereotypes – introverted, intensely smart, socially awkward, individualistic and mostly, male. While we know these subjective, there do seem to be some common threads among IT professionals, and many report having a hard time communicating in a way that positions them for leadership roles.
If you’re a Creative Director or Manager involved in hiring, there’s a good chance you’re being affected by unconscious bias.
Landing that first job is one of the most difficult challenges a young student or graduate can face.
