I only half agree with you about the tech girl character. Yes, at first glance she seems to be carrying the stereotype on her shoulders. She's monotone, wearing glasses, and an ill fitting sweatshirt. But really, is that really that far from what you'd see in IT? Until we see her fail to dress up in a place dressing up makes sense, she's actually far more sensible then someone doing the opposite. We don't know for sure she's socially awkward just because she's dressed down to web design in a warehouse, possibly pro-bono, with the hopes maybe it launches some of her larger career goals. For all we know, she's well aware these girls need her and she may have other reasons Annie (who's the one that brought her in) is someone she wants to help out. While she doesn't have an "I don't have to take this" and walk out moment, she's also not some shrieking violet afraid to point out she can hear them talking about her within earshot. It does walk a thin line of the quintessential nerd brought in to help the trendy girls succeed, but she isn't bowing down to them quietly in a corner either. Don't get me wrong, the show's main character is all together problematic in that she's so extremely selfish at times it's hard to get why ANYONE is sticking around in her circle. However, of all the characters I find the Nasty Gal model (who's name I can't recall) far more problematic. Beyond the occasional comedy moment or two, what is her continuing investment in staying a part of the Nasty Gal company? Especially once Sophia loses the ebay store and money is questionable. Tech girl at least gives Sophia some lip and points out her dumb moves and rudeness at times. Our "pretty model" is pretty much cardboard. If she were at least friends with the girls and was possibly trying to redeem herself from some past fail, I'd get her. Basically, if she had some sort of personality or career goal intersecting with Sophia's goals, like the other characters, she would make sense. At least Tech girl makes sense. Right now Model Girl is just a pretty face and a laugh line.
