DBS to hold inaugural virtual career fair for women

​DBS voted the worlds best bank in 2020, announced it will be hosting its inaugural female-focused virtual career fair for technologists in October to fill over 50 technology jobs in Singapore.

This comes as the bank redoubles its commitment to grow its pipeline of female talent, and encourage more women in Singapore to build a career in the fast-growing technology sector.

Named ‘DBS Women in Technology,’ (DWIT) the event will offer job opportunities for successful applicants across 11 technology roles, including data engineers, scrum masters, full-stack developers, solution architects, and site reliability engineers.

Soh Siew Choo, Managing Director and Head of Consumer Banking and Big Data Analytics Technology at DBS, noted that women continue to be underrepresented in the technology space globally, and DBS wanted to proactively address this by building a pipeline of women technologists in Singapore.

“As a purpose-driven technology company, we have an opportunity to lead by example and demonstrate what companies can do to nurture a more gender-balanced technology workforce. Having balanced gender representation is also pivotal to our ongoing digital transformation, as it allows us to tap on diverse ideas to develop differentiated and exceptional experiences for our customers.”

Applicants will go through an 80-minute online assessment, to be submitted by 19 October, to gauge their technical and planning capabilities.
