Social Responsibility

Commitments built on diversity, equity and inclusion

At Scaleway, we are committed to diversity. Almost 24% of Scalers are women - 10% more than the cloud industry average - and the proportion of women in management positions has risen by 20% in recent years. And we will continue our commitment to making tech more representative of society at large.

Scaleway represents over 25 different nationalities, and when it comes to recruitment, we hire primarily on the basis of the skills demonstrated for each role, over and above any experience or qualifications obtained.

Last but not least, this year we contributed to the revitalization of the job market by hiring on a massive scale: we were 539 Scalers by the end of 2022, an increase of 80% on 2020. And we're continuing our efforts to support all our new employees as we move towards ever-greater growth.

Scaleway - Egapro* Index for 2022

As part of our social policies, we are continuing in our efforts to promote gender diversity and equality.

In accordance with the French law “for the freedom to choose one's professional future”, companies with over 50 employees are evaluated on gender and wage equality. This index allows companies to measure their progress in terms of professional equality, and, when necessary, take corrective action.

This index is calculated on an annual basis using 4 or 5 indicators, according to the size of a company. This index must be made public, and submitted to the Inspection du Travail (French Labor Inspection).

Our commitments to ensuring professional equality

  • Reducing the gender pay gap

    Reaching equal pay between women and men remains a key priority for Scaleway - as for the tech sector at large - and we're fully committed to getting there. Our pay gap has gone from 8% in 2020 to 3.7% in 2022.

  • Training tomorrow's talent

    Late 2020, Scaleway decided to invest in a new program to train young engineers: the Cloud Builder Launchpad. We hire around 20 junior engineers per year and strictly apply gender parity to that selection. 40 women and men have integrated over 20 different teams at Scaleway, and the program's success rate - the proportion of Cloud Builders ultimately signing full time contracts - is currently 97%.
