Juliet Wesley, Product Manager at Touriocity told us: ‘Working in a startup is incredibly exciting and adrenaline filled. You have to be prepared to muck in and do anything as roles within the team can be very fluid. We offer personalised tours in cities all over the world. I work with our developers to make sure that we are constantly improving the website so that it’s easy and fun to use. There are so many start-ups out there looking for enthusiastic young women – you just have to be proactive and get in touch with them. Make sure you pick a field that interests you enough that you can think about it day-in, day-out.’
