Marissa Mayer is a female tech industry success

Perhaps the most successful woman in the tech industry, Marissa Mayer has earned her title fair and square. This ambitious woman began her journey as a student at Stanford University and chose to pursue a career in a male dominated industry, studying Symbolic Systems and Computer Science.

Mayer’s career was an upward trajectory from the moment she graduated, when she received an astounding 14 job offers. But, she chose to become Google employee number 20. She went on to work for Google for almost fifteen years where she had a significant impact on how we use the web every day.

Shortly after leaving an impressive mark on Google, Mayer became the CEO of internet giant Yahoo. She tried to return the company to its previous glory before Google became such a behemoth. Mayer not only grew the company’s existing technology portfolio but also frequently enacted alternative HR policies and systems. But, despite her best efforts, Yahoo could not be saved. However, there was a silver lining for her as not only had she made it onto Forbes 40 under 40 lists but is considered one of the 16th most powerful business people globally.
