Tired of sifting through job boards that just don’t cut it? We’ve all been there, searching for a tech job only to find options that don’t match our field, location, or salary expectations. But fear not, because a new era of online job boards is here to save the day, especially for women in tech.

Enter women-focused tech job boards, specifically designed to help you enter, re-enter, or advance in your career. These boards tackle the obstacles we face as women in the job market, such as the gender pay gap, work-life balance, family-friendly benefits, advancement opportunities, and flexible scheduling.

Here’s what you’ll find on these game-changing boards:

  • Detailed lists of available benefits, wellness programs, childcare, and medical benefits for families
  • Remote work or flexible scheduling options
  • Reviews from women employees
  • Learning and growth opportunities
  • Expected salary ranges for each job

Not only do these boards offer job listings, but they also provide valuable content like blogs, videos, articles, and tips on how to nail your job search. Whether you’re new to the job market or a seasoned professional, the women-friendly resources on these platforms are engaging and incredibly useful.

These job boards are a crucial addition to every industry, location, and occupation. Now, let’s dive into some of these boards and how they can help you find your dream job. We’ll share the pros and cons of each board, so you know what to expect. While they may not offer every single benefit mentioned above, they come pretty close and definitely deserve your attention.

Hire Women Week

Hire Women Week, an annual event hosted by Lady Bird Talent, is a week-long event that’s all about challenging biases and building connections for women and non-binary individuals in tech and startups.

During this event, you’ll have the chance to explore some awesome job opportunities, learn and connect! We’ve got a mix of in-person meetups happening in select cities across the US, and a virtual main stage that ensures everyone can participate, no matter where you are.

Pros:

  • Free to access as a job seeker or employer
  • Emphasis on tech and startup roles
  • Most employers participate in the event so you have a chance to build relationships

Cons:

  • Seasonal- this board is most active in the weeks surrounding the event
  • Unlike the roles Lady Bird Talent posts on our job site, we are not the recruiters for all of these roles. We’ll help with intros where we can, but directly applying is your best bet.

Generation She

Generation She is a platform designed to serve the powerful group of Gen Z women, who are digital natives driven by their commitment to what is right and their unwavering passion for effecting change. Despite being frequently overlooked and underestimated by the traditional world of tech and venture capital, investing in them at this moment is crucial to unlock the potential of future billion-dollar companies.

Pros

  • Simple job search function
  • Job functions include lots of tech roles
  • Internships included on the job board

reachHIRE

reacHIRE is a job board that emphasizes supporting ‘Returners’, individuals who’ve taken a career break and are seeking to re-enter the job market. Their aim is to meet each person where they are and find opportunities that suit their unique circumstances. They offer two main programs: the Cornerstone Return-to-Work Programs and Direct Placement Opportunities. The Cornerstone program is ideal for those who’ve had a longer career break (typically around six years) and are seeking to gradually rebuild their confidence in a supportive environment. Direct Placement, on the other hand, is ideal for individuals with a shorter career break who feel ready to dive right back into work.

Pros:

  • Provides specific programs for individuals returning to work after a break
  • Offers a structured experience with trainings and tools for success
  • Creates a supportive environment for rebuilding your career confidence

Cons:

  • Not specified if all job sectors are covered
  • Only applicable to women+ who have experienced a career break

InHerSight 

InHerSight believes in data-driven hiring. There are a ton of data-driven lists, articles, and resources developed expressly for women. You can review the 50 best places to work for women, and you can break the list down by industry, size, and location. You will find peer reviews of many of the companies posting jobs on the site. There are also articles on every aspect of work, including work-life balance, returning to work, and working from home. There’s a message board to ask questions or converse with other job seekers.

The job search function is interesting in that you can search for jobs based on whether or not a certain attribute is available at a company. These are your “must-haves.” It could be work/life balance or wage satisfaction or a wellness program. Of course, you can still search by industry and location. When you click on an available job, you are first taken to the company profile where you can review extensive ratings and reviews on the company. There is also a page for the company’s benefits.  The job listings are largely informative, although I don’t see salary information. To apply, you are directed to the company’s website. 

Pros

  • Company reviews and ratings
  • Great benefit information for companies posting jobs
  • Data-driven resources
  • Message  boards to  connect with colleagues
  • Search for jobs by “must-have” features 
  • Follow companies to receive more information

Cons

  • No consistent salary information
  • No ability to post resumes
  • No search notifications

PowerToFly 

This site is very event-driven, using remote job fairs as tools to provide resources for job seekers and match employees with companies at hiring events. There are also articles and webinars. If you feel you need some one-on-one coaching, there are mentors and coaches who have been in your shoes to talk to. The job board is excellent. You can search by category, company name, keyword, or location and you can sort by relevance or date posted. Make sure to scroll down past the featured (paid sponsored) listings. There may be better matches for you below.  The listings are extensive, with a lot of great information. 

Pros

  • Remote job fairs and educational events
  • Coaches and mentors available
  • Easy-to-use job search function

Cons

  • No ability to post resumes
  • No salary range
  • No search notifications

Women’s Job List 

This website caters to employers more than job seekers, but the site does have an easy-to-use job search function where you can search by location, category, employer, or keywords. You can filter a job list by even more features. There are also links for employer sites on the front page.  Most of the job listings are not actually on the site. They are found by clicking through to the employer’s webpage or LinkedIn. You can also post your resume for employers to find. This is a bare-bones listing site with very little other content. 

Pros

  • Easy-to-search function
  • Schedule email notifications for new listings
  • Dedicated to diversity
  • The client list includes leading companies
  • Ability to post resumes

Cons

  • No learning or networking features

  • Not all company and search result links are active

Women Impact Tech

Women Impact Tech

Women Impact Tech serves as a thriving community and safe haven for women in technology, manifesting a platform for collaboration, professional growth, and a sense of belonging. The core mission of Women Impact Tech is to bolster gender equity in the tech realm, enabling women to flourish in their careers while aiding organizations to build diverse, inclusive, and productive teams. They endeavor to transform this mission into reality through three key pillars: Knowledge and Insights, Meaningful Connections, and Equity in Hiring. By providing valuable data and guidance on industry trends, business acumen, and work-life balance, they sustain a continuous learning environment. They foster connections and interactions, building a comprehensive support network. Moreover, they bridge the gap between progress companies with robust diversity, equity, and inclusion programs and qualified women technical professionals, fostering equity in hiring practices.

Pros:

  • Clearly specifies if the role is remote
  • Easy to sort by location or job function
  • Links lead to directly applying to employer’s ATS

Cons:

  • Because this job board links to employer’s ATS, some roles are no longer active when you click through
  • Salary data is not consistent

Where Women Work  

This website only posts job listings from employers that meet 10 important criteria, including a commitment to gender equality, approves of flexible working schedules, and has a dedicated program to hire women from early career to executive level.  That’s a good clue that their listings are worth a look! To that end, the site sorts employers looking to hire by experience level and offers extensive landing pages focused on that employer. There is a section for women returning to the workplace. These employer pages offer video testimonies from employees who were in that situation when hired as well as the company’s pertinent HR information like benefits.  To me, these pages are very inspiring! 

That being said, there is no way to search for jobs by location, title, occupation, or keyword. You must search by company. That’s definitely limiting. The job links take you to the employers’ websites, so there is no standardization for the job listings. 

Pros

  • Only companies dedicated to gender equity are listed
  • Jobs are sorted by experience level
  • Lots of great company information 
  • Job search resources including blog, podcasts, and events

Cons

  • No way to search for listings by location, title, occupation, etc
  • No standardization of job listings
  • No ability to post resumes
  • No search notifications

Career Contessa 

This site defines itself as a career coaching site featuring advice and resources for the “grey-area” questions that come up in our careers, like the best time to quit a job or when you should tell your boss about your side hustle. There are on-demand classes, webinars, videos,  a weekly podcast,  and downloadable resources. You can also engage a personal career coach to help you with your specific career questions and challenges.  There are quite a few coaches to choose from at all levels of experience and varied hourly rates. Most coaches have several reviews from past clients posted on their profiles. Lastly, there is a really useful feature called The Salary Project™, a salary database to research what others in your industry and position earn in salary.  That is priceless (pun intended) when deciding what salary range to ask for in the job hunt or planning to ask for a raise.  

As for the job search function, it’s very clear. You can search by location, industry, experience level, position type, and job function. However, locations are limited to large cities and metropolitan areas.  There are tech jobs available from some of the larger companies like Amazon and Zoom. The job listings are informative. However, I didn’t see a lot of salary ranges. Applicants click through to the company’s website to complete the application.  

Pros

  • Lots of great resources
  • Personal job coaches
  • Simple job search function
  • Salary database

Con

  • No consistent salary information
  • Postings are mostly for larger cities
  • No ability to post resumes
  • No search notifications

Fairygodboss 

The front page includes a Facebook-like news feed for job seekers to interact with each other. This site has plenty of educational articles, webinars, group discussion boards, and reviews of companies. You need to create an account to access most of it. However, you can post your resume for employers to review.  The job search function is pretty basic, just keyword and location. The companies posting jobs on this site seem to be large global companies, not local small or mid-sized businesses. 

Pros

  • Good resources
  • Ability to interact with others 
  • Company reviews
  • Ability to post experience in profile
  • Receive job listing updates

Cons

  • Few filters on job search
  • Not many mid or small business postings
  • Must create an account to access most of the site

Tech Ladies

Tech Ladies bills itself as a worldwide community with more than 100,000 members. You need to apply for a free membership to review the job listings, receive their e-newsletter, and gain access to the online community boards. However, most of their webinars and events are available for anyone to attend. Some of the webinars are free, while others charge a ticket price.  There is also a Founding Member version of membership that is about $60-$80 per month. This membership allows you to take advantage of extra coaching, events, and networking opportunities. The focus is on STEM jobs however their definition of “tech” is wide enough to include positions in marketing, business development, design, and research.  There are a ton of very inspiring success stories on the website. One very cool detail is that they are members of the United Nation’s Equal Pay International Coalition. 

On the job listing page, you can search by keyword and filter by category, type, and location. The job listings are comprehensive and include icons to point out the company’s perks, including work-from-home and flexible schedules. Some of the postings include compensation ranges. To apply, you are sent to the company employment page. 

Pros

  • Diverse types of tech jobs
  • Simple job search function
  • Great success stories to keep you motivated
  • Comprehensive job descriptions

Cons

  • Must apply for membership for free access to most of the site including the job board
  • No consistent salary information 
  • Some events and resources are not free

 

Elpha

The tagline for Elpha is “Elpha is where women build our careers together.”  You must apply for membership to access the site. When you join, you will see a Slack-like interface customized to your interests and needs. You can choose community discussion threads to network with others, or you can create a community discussion board of your own. The existing boards are wide-ranging in terms of subjects, everything from compensation to parenting. The resources page is limited, with just a few blog posts. There are also Elpha points you can collect by interacting on the site and redeem for rewards like events, resources, and swag. 

The Browse Job function is easy to find. Once there, you can search by the percentage of women in leadership a company has, the type of culture and funding, as well as the usual location, sector,  and company size. These company profiles have more information than most other job boards I’ve reviewed. The profiles include the company’s mission, values, culture, benefits, DEI principles, work/life balance ideals, and some compensation information. Also, Elpha members who work at the company are highlighted for job seekers to contact. The job listings are also very detailed and include information like benefits and impact, but do not include compensation ranges. When you click apply, you are taken to the company’s website or recruiting site. The jobs are primarily tech positions, and the list of posted positions is large. 

Pros

  • Detailed and informative company information
  • Ability to interact with others through active message boards
  • A large number of job postings
  • Interesting job search categories, including culture, percentage of women in leadership, etc.
