General Job Board Questions
What is the Women Who Code job board?
- The Women Who Code job board is your opportunity to connect with our community of over 80,000 engineers. We've created an experience that facilitates efficient communication between employers and potential tech employees by eliminating the subconscious biases which are often a barrier to effective hiring practices.
What Sets the Women Who Code Job Board Apart?
- We are the largest community of women engineers. Our job board specifically targets our community by taking on a minimalist approach. The application process is quick and easy, allowing engineers who may not be actively seeking employment to quickly explore potential opportunities. It also encourages companies to highlight job benefits (e.g. medical insurance, maternity leave, work from home, paid vacation, etc.) which our community has voted as being most important when considering their next employer.
What type of jobs can I post on the WWCode Job Board?
- Our members are predominantly engineers and people who participate in different parts of the development process: product, data science, analytics, security, dev ops, etc. Companies yield better results when posting jobs that meet our member's career demographics.
When will my job be removed?
- Your job will automatically expire 30 days after the job was posted (find expiration dates by visiting your dashboard).
Do you track clicks on the
Apply Now URL?
- Yes. Please email [email protected] if you would like to see analytics data for your posting.
Can I get a refund?
- Women Who Code does not give refunds for any job posts or subscriptions (please see our Terms of Service).

Job Board How-To
How do I post a job?
- The first step is to purchase job credits by choosing a one-time website post or one of our monthly subscription plans on our Companies Page. If you’ve already purchased a website post or subscription, simply go to your dashboard and click “Post a Job.”
Why do I only have a 141 characters to describe my position?
- Research has found that employers who include too many requirements risk losing qualified applicants that might otherwise be able to learn the necessary skills on the job. We reserve the right to edit job posts in order to make them better match the Women Who Code community (for more information, please see our Terms of Service).
It says I can either submit my email address or a job application link. What is the difference?
- There are 2 options when posting on the job board. The first allows applicants to directly email you about the job you posted. The second option is for you to list your job application link, and for applicants to apply directly through that.
If I choose to use an job application link what page should I link to?
- Please include a link to the initial application process for the position. We discourage you from posting a link to a longer job description as our research has shown that when someone clicks the
Apply Now button, they are ready to begin applying for the job. Linking to a longer job description can make your post repetitive and cause people to abandon the application process.
Can I change the content of my job post?
I have a benefit (e.g. medical insurance, maternity leave, tuition, etc.) for my job post that is not listed?
What are the different plan options that are available for posting a job?
- Website Post: One job post published on the Women Who Code job board for 30 days.

What is a Promotion?
