How do you grow a career in tech?  We speak to Alaina Percival, CEO of Women Who Code—the largest and most active community for technical women in the world.  Her advice is to continually challenge yourself and elevate your voice and goals—remember that you’re in high demand!

Alaina shares her career path; she’s run niche products for Puma in Germany, led developer outreach for a technical recruiting company in San Francisco and taught herself to code.  As the CEO of Women Who Code, she works to inspire women to thrive in the tech industry.  Alaina shares how she navigates the always near and dear imposter syndrome; that if you aren’t feeling it—you may have been in your role too long.  There should always be 40% that you don’t know.  She also emphasizes the importance of community and support; don’t be shy to reach out and share your goals—there is a very accessible and supportive community willing to help.

Visit Women Who Code to access free resources & workshops, browse job & scholarship opportunities and engage with an amazing network of technical women across the globe.
