Each year, the tech unicorn receives over 1 million applications from all over the world. The recent peak in applications submitted by women is accompanied by a 400% increase in women applying for technical and non-technical roles during a six-year period.
BairesDev®, a nearshore software solutions unicorn, continues to report a growing trend of women applicants in 2023. In February alone, 52% of all BairesDev applicants were women, the highest application rate reported in company history.
The increase in women applicants at BairesDev is consistent with the company’s recently reported 400% increase in women applicants between 2015 and 2021. These findings were revealed in BairesDev’s most recent “Women in Tech 2022” Report, a research study that shares findings from the more than 1 million applications received each year since 2015.
“The growing number of women applying to BairesDev shows a positive trend in terms of talent availability, but this is only the beginning,” said Rocío Belfiore, Chief Innovation Officer at BairesDev. “According to the World Economic Forum, it will take 132 years to reach gender parity. We will continue improving our recruitment models and invest more resources on initiatives that significantly impact diversity and inclusion, such as educational opportunities for potential applicants.”
