Kubrick consultant Jessie M. reflects on her experiences as a woman in tech and the various steps we have taken to create an inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome. She also offers useful advice to anyone that might be thinking about a career in technology but lacks the confidence to take that all-important step.
Interview with Jess
Hi, my name is Jess and I joined in January 2022. The culture at Kubrick has a very flat structure, so it makes it really easy for someone like me who's just starting out in their career to ask very senior people important questions and not feel like I can't. There's definitely an emphasis that no question, is a stupid question, which makes you feel good about going on to the client site. Diversity and inclusion were something that also drew me to Kubrick, and it was nice to see that they were championing it externally and internally with a number of different initiatives.
I think it's well known that the tech industry is generally quite male-dominated, which is why I think it's even more important if you're a female and you think you want to do this or deep down you know you can, but maybe you just don't have exposure to it yet. Just do it. I think like working at a place like Kubrick where they're actively looking for people like you, I think just apply, and you never know where you might be in the next five years or so.
