“As a mission-driven tech company we think it’s important to act as an inspirational driver of change. Equality in the workforce is part of the positive change we want to see. We also believe it leads to a fundamentally healthier culture and to more success. As we build out our tech team in 2023 we hope to inspire many women in tech to join us.”
Frontend Engineer at Seenons
Hello! I am Stephanie, I am from France and I work as a frontend developer at Seenons. I live in the Netherlands for 5 years now and I am happy to say that I could find a company where I can connect my passion for development with my values. At Seenons we aim for a waste-free world and we use our platform to connect all the players in the waste chain and enable the circular economy. I always tried to reduce my own waste and even developed a personal website to help people reduce their waste by suggesting reusable products instead of disposable ones. I am now glad to be able to contribute at a bigger scale!
What or Who inspired you to pursue your chosen career?
Since I was a kid my father worked as a network administrator and I’ve always been curious about his work. Because he was in this field I got a computer quite early on and developed an interest in the tech world right away! Besides that, at school, I always liked mathematics and solving problems so I followed this path and ended up studying computer science. I honestly never really paid attention to the fact that there were fewer women in this type of school, I just aimed for what I liked and wanted to do.
Interview with Seenons
We interviewed Tanya van Wilgenburgh, Chief of People & Culture at Seenons. Seenons is a tech company that strives for a waste-free world. By creating a tech platform to connect all the players in the waste chain, Seenons aims to accelerate the circular economy, and they help businesses produce zero-waste by creating connections amongst different players in the waste chain. According to Tanya, a company “stands and falls with a good culture” and that’s why she is here to tell us about culture at Seenons, and to inspire others with Seenons’ initiatives towards gender equality within the workforce.
