Issue 52

We are working to build great features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their free time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.


We've been making changes to the job board plans that are offered and the core-team has been hard at work implementing those updates. A whole new level known as the enterprise class plan (still known officially as the growth plan) was introduced, allowing the purchase of multiple job postings with a single plan. This involved migrating settings from the previous growth plan, and then testing and editing new features that are now available. We also did some work to implement a more extensive credits system with posted jobs, so users with available credits can use them to make more postings.

On the design side we created a sponsors page to list some of the companies that have shown us the greatest support. There is also a my schedules tab on the user dashboard, which is a temporary element implemented until a better solution can be put in place.

Now we have a CONTRIBUTING to more accurately communicate our guidelines and workflow.
