Artist's Description

The poster aims to explode the idea that the only people who work in tech are programmers, and that traditionally female-coded roles, such as Teacher, Communicator and Facilitator are ‘not really tech jobs’. It identifies ten broad categories of job in the tech industry, and we hope it will inspire girls to consider the wide variety of roles available to them in tech.

Designed in collaboration with Stack Overflow, Ten Types of Technologist is based on metadata about their job listings as well as results from their 2018 Developer Surveys.

The role descriptions are left intentionally general so that students can more easily explore the nuances of different jobs within each category. That also allows teachers, parents and career advisors to talk through the personal attributes that attract students to a particular role type, rather than focus on a narrow set of technical skills which might initially seem intimidating.

“Ada Lovelace is a hero to many at Stack Overflow (we even have a conference room named after her in our NYC office!)” said design manager Kristina Lustig. “We were excited to do our small part in supporting Ada Lovelace Day, especially since, as the world’s largest community for developers, we share a passion for making tech more inclusive.”
