YC Jobs Series: Women Engineers in Startups

This fall, Y Combinator is bringing together a cohort of women engineers who are interested in finding roles at fast growing startups.

This is a three-week series where participants will meet once a week for two-hour sessions (Wednesdays 10/12, 10/19, 10/26). During the sessions, you will hear from women who joined startups as early engineers, get mentorship from YC alumni and alumni company engineering managers, and build a community of peers. The program will culminate in interviews at YC startups.

Topics discussed will include:

  • Why join a startup? What are the pros and cons?
  • How do you determine where you should work? What should you look for in a startup and founding team?
  • How to prepare for the interview process (including interview practice)

If you are currently a woman engineer working at a tech company, are thinking about your next role, and might want to transition to a startup, this series is for you.

Apply to join the 2022 cohort -- applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through the start date of 10/12.

Note that profiles are visible to YC founders and hiring managers at YC startups. If you're not ready to share your profile or look for a job, please specify so on the application.

At YC, we use an inclusive definition of “women” and welcome trans women as well as genderqueer and non-binary people who identify as women or femme in any way.
