The tech industry is faced with a hiring challenge. Hiring Engineers in itself is a difficult task, let alone hiring women for your product and engineering teams

That’s where Xena comes in. Work with us and gain access to our gender-diverse talent pool including Senior Engineer, Product and Leadership talent.

Get to know our community

I’ve always tried to champion women’s empowerment in the workplace and beyond, which is why it makes me so proud that Uber is sponsoring an award to celebrate “Women in Leadership”. At Uber, we are committed to empowering women in our workplace – through initiatives like our “Women at Uber” ERG or targeted mentoring – as well as within our industry. I’m thrilled we are partnering with Xena, and I’m excited to see what we can do together to close the gender gap in tech.

Anabel Diaz

Vice President, Head of EMEA Mobility at Uber

“As the lead sponsor of the Gender Equality Team – our Employee Resource Group focused on improving gender diversity, equity, and inclusion at HelloFresh – I am proud of the different initiatives we have in place to hire more women in tech and support their career progressions such as the Women in Tech Scholarship and our annual review of the gender split on promotion rates.”

Annie Pia Meininghaus

Senior VP of Product at HelloFresh

 

 

“Thank you Xena and my amazing team for hosting this inspiring event!”.

Manan Vohra

Chief Technology Officer at FUGA

“It’s been a week since I attended Finding Your Niche In Tech hosted by Xena & HelloFresh. It was a pleasure listening to these wonderful women. I channeled all of the advice into my work week and I’m proud of the outcome!”.

Bethal Adaobi Onyeakagbu

Incoming Solutions Manager at Software AG

“Xena is the perfect partner for diversity hiring. They have the capacity to fill our tech and product roles with women in tech to ensure we create a diverse team that matches our culture. Since working with Xena we have increased the diversity within HelloFresh and improved our DE&I employer branding by becoming their partner.”

Yasar Ahmad

Global Vice President - Talent at HelloFresh

“Being a part of Xena provides a platform to be involved at a grassroots level, while having an opportunity to continuously learn. It brings a focus on STEM, while identifying that action is needed to bring the entire ecosystem together – this is exciting and unique! I am thrilled to be an ally, advocate, and to be truly involved with Xena!”

Dipti Dhawan

VP of Engineering at Omnius

“I feel like Xena is different than other recruitment agencies, the recruiter was like a coach to me.  The recruiter believed in me and made me believe in myself. It’s not easy to move to a different company,  country and culture – everything is different and scared me. The recruiter made me feel comfortable in every step. I kept getting asked how I felt during every step and  if I wanted to move forward.”

Amal Drira

Software Engineer at Zalando

“Sometimes women are not taken seriously in engineering roles and it is important to have representation in the market. Having Xena as an allay to protect my interests and look out for me was a great thing to have. I felt I was treated equally to any other candidates and this was amazing.”

Inna Lytkina

Fullstack Product Engineer at Passionfroot

“Very proud of being part of this initiative! A huge thanks to my company FUGA for engaging us in making a difference in bringing equality to tech, and also to our partners Xena and VHTO.”

Danielly Friedrich

Associate Product Manager at FUGA

“I had a good time going through the recruitment process with Lovet from Xena, not only was she warm and sweet, she showed gestures to make my move easier. And yes I love the welcome package, that was sweet too.”

Adisat Eletu

Senior Software Engineer at HelloFresh

“The work We Are Xexa does is so good and was essential for me to get a job offer in Germany. I’m very thankful for the work Lovett and her colleagues did! Would recommend 100%.”
