Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers In San Francisco

Top Female Engineers in the Bay Area

The low representation of women in the tech sector has been one of the biggest issues of 2015. It’s a huge, important issue with a range of contributing factors.

Companies of all sizes are under pressure to increase diversity in their teams. Particularly in their tech teams.

But how can they go about doing this?

We don’t claim to be experts on the issue of diversity in tech. But we are seeing a huge increase in the number of companies looking to proactively identify and attract a more diverse range of candidates. This is an area we do know something about.

When a company has a very specific type of candidate they want to hire, it should influence every step of their hiring process. One of the most important steps happens at the very beginning, and it’s called sourcing.

Sourcing is the process of identifying the specific characteristics of your ideal candidate, then finding as many people who meet that criteria as possible.

At RecruitLoop, we’ve created a very specific sourcing algorithm and process to help companies do this, anywhere in the world. We call it Sourcing as a Service.

Want an example of how it works?

In an effort to bring some positive news to the issue of women in tech, and highlight the positive impact so many women are having in this space, we’ve sourced the top female engineers in a number of geographies and verticals.

Here is a list of the top 50 front-end engineers in San Francisco, based on their experience, qualifications and digital footprint.

Check out the amazing list of female engineers leading the charge in the Bay Area!

  • Clara L.

    Great to see come Latinas on the list….

  • Felipe Surnamewitheld

    Diversity aka White, Chinese and Indian. If only there were Latina or Black women in San Francisco tech for your “diversity” list. Oh wait.. There are, you’re just not interested in looking for them.

  • Alexandre Carneiro

    Hello there. I love the White, Chinese and Indian girls. But, if you dig deeper, I bet you can find some Latinas or Black women in the San Francisco tech scene… Make us proud!
