Leah Thomas,

The technology industry is seeing more and more female talent every day. And while some companies have adjusted their previously male-dominated work environments, others have not. 

We at Fairygodboss are here to help you seek out the companies and the environments that allow women to thrive in their careers, and avoid those boys’ clubs.

6. Snap Inc.

Snap Inc. has its sights set on reinventing the way we see (and use) cameras, and women who work there seriously love being a part of that mission. When asked whether they would recommend Snap to other women, one FGB'er who recently returned from maternity leave gave a resounding, all-caps "YES." Her reasoning? "My managers and HR have been incredibly supportive and helpful with everything, which has made my time as a new mom so special. I am incredibly grateful to work at a company that values family so much."
