Women Software Engineers Are Well-Represented... in Small Companies, Aimed at Women.

Less than 7% of the 207 companies surveyed by Tracy Chou have 50% or more women in their engineering team. In comparison, 14% of them have an all-male team. Two of these female dominates companies are particularly targeted at female users (Tog+PorterHackbright Academy), and one (Spitfire Athlete) has a particular interest in a female audience, being focused on  "empowering women".

These female-friendly teams are all small: none has more than 10 software engineers, and all but one of them (Scientific Learning) actually have at most four. The only two 100% women engineering teams are in fact made up respectively of one and two engineers
