If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

RailsGirlsAU 2014 - Sydney and Melbourne

A few weekends back, I was honoured to be a mentor at RailsGirls in Sydney for the 2nd time. It’s amazing to see such an enthusiastic crowd of women who have an interest in becoming Ruby programmers! As president of Ruby Australia, I’m very proud of the community we’ve built over the last 10 or so years.

What was also encouraging was the diverse backgrounds of all the attendees. We had high school ages right up to mothers and grandmothers just proving you’re never too young, or old to get into development.

I also was very happy to catch up with the great Sydney mentors who were mostly senior developers but also RailsGirls who had participated in the previous meetups. It’s great to see them back as mentors!

There were also some great presentations starting from basic “how the web works” right up to some slightly more advanced topics for the RailsGirls Next. RailsGirls Next is the program put together by some local Sydney women who want to show the path forward for learning Rails.

We’re delighted to be sponsoring the upcoming RailsGirls in Melbourne this weekend, I’ll be around on Friday night and all day Saturday. Please come and say hi!
