Women still make up a very small percentage of the IT and Technology sector with just over a quarter of these roles being occupied by women. However, MachineMax has been #breakingthebias since the company was founded in 2018 with just under half of all staff being women whilst also having talented women at every level, leading the way within the company.

Head of Product & Design, Kate Stephen said: “As a woman in tech I’m contributing to a much wider goal - generating greater diversity, not only in the workplace but also in the solutions we build. Whilst women continue to be underrepresented in many tech companies, MachineMax has many incredible women across our team, and I hope we can be role models for those looking to start out or take the next step in their career.”
