Creating an inclusive workplace based on respect, transparency and empowerment have always been on top at Quixy. Hence, it doesn’t come out as a surprise that the Female to Male ratio of Quixy employees is 40:60 as compared to that of 34:66 of the industry.
The “Women of Quixy” is a group of female employees of Quixy formed to create a space that offers strong peer support to its members. Events like productivity programs, leadership workshops are a few of the things Quixy does for its women employees to keep them motivated. In the honor of Women’s history month, Women of Quixy honours the challenges, potential, and achievements of the women in No-Code Tech achieving success. Here’s what women in Quixy have to say about their experience in tech, some of them have also shared a piece of advice they have for women exploring careers in tech.
Our customer success lead, Avanthi Amara, who has been a part of Quixy for more than one year, here’s what she has to say.
Working with Quixy has always been fun and undoubtedly working here makes you strong, both as an individual and professional. I only have a list of great experiences which I am looking forward to keeping on adding here at Quixy, love the spirit of teamwork I share with my colleagues.
I would surely say that there is still a long way to go but yes, I’ve started to understand everyone, being empathetic and taking decisions that are best for the team. (Certainly not related to any gender)
Remember, how you manage your time is up to you and your call. Efficiently working will not add to stress or pressure. I make sure I have a list of tasks planned with buffer time for ad hocs. A nice walk, watching movies and series, visiting my grandpa’s place (spend time with him and my cute little cousins) are the things I do when I’m not working.
That being mediocre is the self-harm we do to ourselves. Excel in whatever you are doing!
Nivedita is a working mother and has been a part of the tech industry for the past 14 years, this is what Nivedita wanted to share.
One thing that I have always thought and believed, which is important for every woman is independency. For some reason, I never wanted to rely on others and I think that has been the driving force for me.
I never thought I would get into the technology sector, but in engineering, I had to take Information Technology. And then, I realized that I was interested in coding but it’s amazing how I ended up being part of a no-code platform.
The best part of being in the tech industry is every day is challenging and also there is always a scope to learn new things. I love to code and if you do what you love, that itself is the best part.
My day starts with multi-tasking between office calls, waking up my kid, and getting him ready for his classes. The difficult part is definitely so much multi-tasking but the good thing is it lasts for a few hours only. The best part is flexible working hours and working from home balance these hectic few hours and also gives me the freedom to spend some time with my kid.
Me time – It is a little difficult to find me time but whenever I feel like I want some break I mostly cook – cooking is like relaxation to me or just go to my terrace enjoy the cool breeze and listen to music.
Women in Quixy are breaking the barriers and are coming across as an inspiration to men working with them. Here’s the piece of advice Women in Quixy has for women exploring careers in tech.
