hipages Scholarship for STEM Students (External)

hipages began in a garage back in 2004. Our founders David Vitek and Roby Sharon-Zipser wanted to change the way people searched for quality local businesses so they went about reinventing the online directory concept. They began by starting two specialist websites focusing on home improvements and natural therapies.

They knew that technology would help facilitate this change but had the foresight to know that they needed great people behind that technology to make something truly amazing.

We are really proud of our diversity at hipages and believe our culture greatly contributes to our success as a business. We want to be thought leaders in the technology industry, help change the lack of diversity typical of our industry and ensure that as we continue to grow, we keep our great culture and further improve our diversity and inclusion.

One of the things that sets us aside from other tech companies is the number of women we employ in roles that are crucial to our business. We want to continue encouraging and attracting females into these roles which is the reasoning behind offering a scholarship specifically for women studying the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) with a digital or web technology focus.
