An observation/speculation on recruiting a senior software developer:

The quality of female candidates is consistently higher.

I suspect (from what I’ve heard from other female devs) that they are trying hard because they feel they need to do more to prove themselves.

But if so this might imply that the male candidates are NOT trying hard.

And it’s a well paid senior gig. You should be trying hard!!

The alternative: women are just better engineers and are lining up to take over the world.
