In an effort to invest in, develop and inspire women in technology, the company is hosting a three day, expense-paid immersion program at Square’s San Francisco headquarters called Code Camp.
“There are so many talented women across the country looking to develop their technical skills, meet new people with common interests and gain valuable startup experience,” said Jude Komuves, Vice President of People at Square in the press release that announced the event. “Code Camp will be an amazing place to start. We are thrilled to kick off this program and to share our passion for engineering and designing beautiful products to revolutionize commerce, ” she added.
The three-day program will include conversations and mentorship sessions with Square leaders, hands-on workshops with teams from across the company, Q&A sessions, as well as tours around the beautiful and historic Bay Area. Contest winners will be flown to San Francisco and provided accommodations during their stay. So if you are a female engineering student of 18 years or above, enrolled as a full-time student at a university in the US or Canada (excluding Quebec) and pursuing a degree in computer science, computer engineering or a related technical major, this is just for you.
