About the #TechTeamTour

The #TechTeamTour wants to help you discover cool technology career options. Have you ever considered working in technology when you finish school? There is a myth that technology careers are only for boys, this isn’t true, technology is for girls and boys and we need lots of different people to shape the future. Technology has the ability to change the world, making it better for everyone. Technology is and belongs everywhere; at music festivals, in video games, on college campuses, in apps, on film sets on TV and at sporting events. If you want to help change the world and be part of the process check out the rest of the #TechTeamTour video series to go behind the scenes at Irish technology companies!
