Being a Women in Tech

From the Perspective of Women at AxCrypt

As we all celebrate International Women's Day, it is important to recognize the invaluable contributions of women in the tech industry. Traditionally, technology is seen as a male dominated industry. However, in recent years, this industry has welcomed more women breaking barriers and making their mark in the tech world.

Despite facing obstacles such as gender biases and lack of representation, women have persevered and are now making significant strides in the field. In this article, let’s explore the experiences of women in tech, their contributions to the industry, and the challenges they have overcome to get where they are today – all from the perspective of women working at AxCrypt Software. With that, let’s see what each women at AxCrypt has to say about her experience:

Daria – Graphic Designer, The Design Dynamo of AxCrypt

“Being a women in tech gives me a sense of freedom and confidence. I feel proud to be breaking the gender stereotypes about the traditional roles of women and instead becoming more educated and familiar with technology. This has enabled me to become self-sufficient, reliable, and adaptive – when facing different life challenges and situations.

One of the best things about working in the technology sector is the slew of opportunities and possibilities that are presented to you. It allows you to become more flexible and open-minded, while still having an innate curiosity, and the ability to change, adapt, and educate yourself. It makes you grow both professionally and personally, and helps you live a content and purposeful life.”

Pavitra - Human Resource Manager, The HR Hero of AxCrypt

“Working in the constantly evolving tech industry has made me feel young and full of energy. At AxCrypt, not only do I find fulfilment in my career, but I’m also able to financially support my partner and appreciate the challenges that come with his own job. We mutually complement each other, both in our professional and personal lives, and my parents couldn’t be happier seeing their daughter pursue a career in tech after starting a family.”

Overall, inspiring more women to pursue careers in technology requires a concerted effort from individuals, companies, and society as a whole. By breaking down barriers and promoting inclusivity, we can create a more diverse and innovative tech industry that thrives on the collective efforts of everyone.”

Jency - Operational Director, The Operational Oracle of AxCrypt

“I have been working in the tech industry for the past 20 years – specifically, in the administrative and human resources side of the industry. This is not a job I could have dreamed of as a child, and the tech world didn’t even exist back then.  Bangalore used to be a beautiful tourist destination, until the early 2000s when almost overnight it became the IT hub of India

This was also around the time I was starting out in life in Bangalore was very privileged to be able to grow in the industry while it was still in its early stages. I have had the opportunity to see, learn, and participate on what it takes to build multiple international tech companies from the ground up. Throughout my career, I've made life-long friends from various parts of the world, acquainted myself with diverse cultures, and was even fortunate enough to travel abroad for work.

In the tech industry, there is always something new to learn and ample room for personal and professional growth. Moreover, there is enormous potential to be creative and make a positive impact. For me, working at AxCrypt is the best job ever, and I especially cherish the opportunity it provides.

At AxCrypt, I have the freedom to grow in my role without any limits, and the upper management has fostered a work environment that is friendly yet competitive. What I value most about this workplace is the sense of equality and respect that is deeply ingrained in its culture.”

Vandana – Business Manager, The Marketing Marvel of AxCrypt

“Technology is linked with progress, and a community that embraces technology is considered to be progressive. Technology simplifies our lives and improves our standard of living.

As someone who works in the technology industry, I feel that I’m playing a key role in the progress of my community and making people's lives better. While I may not be directly involved in the development of the technology itself; my efforts, experience, and knowledge has helped make it more accessible to the people and processes of it simplified.

Working at AxCrypt has given me the opportunity to contribute to the betterment of people using technology, and as a women in tech, I’m committed to ensuring that technology reaches everyone and helps enhance individuals' lives, ultimately contributing to the development of society.”

Venkatalakshmi – Jr. Software Engineer, The Coding Ninja of AxCrypt

“The technology field demands more dedication and hard work, as we work to bring the abstract and creative ideas to life on screens. It allows us to express ourselves and find solutions to every problem. Technology is like an endless sea of possibilities, where there is always something new to learn, and it empowers us to see beyond the horizon. Whether we are men or women, it is our choice to ride the beautiful waves of technology and explore the depths of knowledge.

The tech field provides a higher level of understanding and practical knowledge, helping us to organize our lives and approach them with optimism and wisdom. We deserve access to knowledge and awareness of the protection technology can offer us. As women, we understand that opportunities may not always come our way, but we have the power to create them ourselves.”

Swapna – Jr. Software Developer, The Binary Defender of AxCrypt

“The field of information technology has traditionally been a male dominated one, but I see every day that more and more women are breaking into the industry and making a name for themselves. Balancing my work and personal life may be a challenge, but with every challenge comes the opportunity to grow and become stronger. In this ever-evolving industry, it is vital to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and skills. Falling behind the curve can mean losing out in the highly competitive world of tech.

As a women in tech, I am constantly learning and expanding my skills to stay ahead of the curve. The tech industry offers endless possibilities for innovation and making a positive impact on the world. It's a challenging yet dynamic career path that is worth every bit of effort.

I am proud to be a part of an industry that is shaping the future and changing the world for the better. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my experience in the tech industry.”

Shalini – Jr. Software Engineer, The Captain Compiler AxCrypt

“The myth that women's empowerment can only happen slowly has debilitated their power. We need to realize that, when it comes to eradicating this deep-rooted problem of traditional gender stereotyping, everyone's contribution counts.

Faced with several hurdles such as gender preferences, low representation and a virtual glass ceiling, women are constantly trying to uplift themselves and bring a change in the industry, and are excelling in higher positions. Despite the challenges, it is a fulfilling experience to work in a company that doesn't discriminate. I am glad to work as a women in the IT industry and have high hopes for breaking gender inequality. Happy International Women's Day.”

Manjula – Sr. Software Engineer, The Tech Titan of AxCrypt

“I am a software engineer with over 10 years of experience in .NET development, and I’m proud to be part of the tech industry. I entered the corporate world through campus recruitment, and was offered a position at one of the big IT companies, and it was a dream come true.

Despite challenges and stereotypes about women's capabilities in coding and analytical thinking, I have persevered and have seen the importance of diversity in this field. Balancing work and family responsibilities can be difficult, especially for working mothers, but we are capable of multitasking, time management, and keeping up with family values while pursuing our careers.

As Women's Day approaches, I would like to extend my congratulations to all the women in tech and thank them for their remarkable achievements and contribution to the industry.
