Exactpro Women In Tech

Exactpro was proud to announce the appointment of Natia Sirbiladze as CEO of its Tbilisi, Georgia branch – Exactpro Systems Georgia in 2018.  This is now our largest software delivery location.

For the last several years, Natia has been successfully promoting the importance of professional excellence in Georgia, building and nurturing a local QA community, establishing links with universities and actively showing support for IT students from across the country. Natia founded GeoSTQB – a Georgian representation of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) – that she spearheads. 

Educate 500 Women in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is the most recent local initiative we joined. It is being held in partnership with UN Women, Tbilisi's Business and Technology University, the Government of Norway and the support of IT businesses in Georgia. Exactpro will be offering 75 women internship opportunities in 2022-2023. The internships are likely to result in the participants becoming members of the Exactpro team. For us, it is another chance to influence and promote inclusive workplace practices in the industry.

Approximately 34% of Exactpro employees are women.

Although this reflects the situation with technology talent available on the market, the proportion of the overall number of female employees at Exactpro exceeds both the technology industry average and the projections made for 2022.

The observed gender pay gaps are related to the employees’ distribution across positions and roles. Exactpro is strictly compliant with the legal requirement to pay men and women the same for equal work. The Exactpro management has no immediate plans to redress the situation. We recognise that it is not possible to achieve equality of outcome without quotas and other discriminatory measures.

The median is the figure that falls in the middle of a range when the wages of all relevant employees are lined up from the smallest to the largest. The median gender pay gap is calculated based on the difference between the middle employee in the range of male wages and the middle employee in the range of female wages.

The mean is calculated by adding up the wages of all relevant employees and dividing the figure by the number of employees. The mean gender pay gap is calculated based on the difference between the mean male pay and the mean female pay.

The presented figures exclude the company’s co-CEOs and ultimate beneficiaries – two males and two females. Nine specialists on parental leave for the whole year were excluded as well. Sixteen specialists who spent on average six months on maternity leave during the year, but worked for the rest of the period are included. The figures are based on 2021 annual data and represent aggregated annual figures instead of a monthly snapshot.
