AdaLovelaceDay09: the women I work with at MOO.

25th March 2009 by stefan

I’ve been building tech companies for about 14 years now, mostly as CTO. MOO is the first where 50% of the tech team have been women.

Nicky Thompson, Natasha Ranney, Monika Szczygieł, Tamsin Bowles, and Alexandra Mitchell (not strictly part of the tech team, but a mistress-of-the-darkest-darkest-SQL-arts -”yes, I know the answer to that”- wonder) made MOO what it is today.

Does having a 50% women tech team make it more ‘touchy-feely’, ‘feminine’, ‘gentler’? No. Does it make it more questioning? precise? reliable, imaginative, bug and nonsense-free? YES.

Thank you all.

    They are the most fantastic team to work with, too: patient, dedicated, creative, fun. I miss them.

    I’d like to second Kim. A brilliant team and I miss them all. The male female balance is a dimension I wish more teams had. Well done MOOs!
