A few days before International Women’s Day, Tes hosted the Ladies of Code Meetup group for an evening of talks, networking and community. Three speakers gave advice on how to become a ‘next-level developer’: how to advance your career, become a ‘superhero’ and negotiate your salary effectively in the context of the gender pay gap. While the event was aimed at women, there was sound advice for engineers of any gender.
Working remotely has multiple benefits for the Tes Technology team. These include improved engagement and happiness of our team members, a flexible and dynamic workplace, and the best possible situation for team members to find and decide where/when they can work most effectively. One key challenge for working remotely at Tes is the blend of remote & office workers. This leads to a set of challenges that, were this a 100% remote team, would not exist.
