Allan Grant, CTO at Hired, presented Natalie Gordon, CEO at BabyList, with the award for Outstanding Tech Entrepreneur. Natalie is a mentor at the organization and facilitates sessions where women can improve their coding skills. As a pregnant coder, Natalie built a Ruby app for her baby registry. After being accepted into 500Startups, the growing business just hired its ninth employee. Two of the engineers were connected to Natalie through Women Who Code.

During her acceptance speech, Natalie said, “it’s never too late to learn how to code. The community at Women Who Code help you unblock, learn and move forward to the next coding challenge. I’m honored and humbled to be considered a mentor in the organization.”

Hired is proud to support organizations like Women Who Code, which support the fostering and development of talent. We are thrilled to be a partner with this organization as they plan to launch in 50 cities by the end of this year and connect one million women in the tech community by 2019.
