IT services firm ThoughtWorks provides systems integration and application development services for large and multi-national companies around the world.

OK, let’s get the corporate stuff out of the way first. ThoughtWorks is a global IT consultancy providing Agile-based systems development and consulting services. We've pioneered many of the most advanced and successful Agile methods of software development and best practices used in the industry today.
In other words, we build (amazing) software. It’s amazing because we build it with a complete obsession on doing the right thing for the user and the customer, and some innovative methods to get us there really quickly. It’s also amazing because it’s the stuff that makes or breaks companies; software which creates competitive advantage.
But that’s only part of the story. ThoughtWorks is a social and commercial community based on three pillars – (1) running a sustainable business -- which enables us to (2) deliver software excellence and (3) advocate for positive social change. You’ll hear us talk about our Pillars at lot if you join us.
We see building software as a social activity, best done by teams of brilliant people, not a mechanistic process where individuals are interchangeable cogs in a master plan. Our hiring model focuses on finding outstanding talent, over the mastery of tools.
ThoughtWorks has grown from a small group of passionate people our founder, Roy Singham, gathered in a factory-district office in Chicago to a company spread across 24 offices in ten countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Now, you may have heard that our hiring process is “tough” or “difficult”. We’re out to build a community of amazing people, and our hiring process is designed to find the people that will keep us extraordinary. That doesn’t mean that everyone has a billion years of experience or is already an expert. We were interviewed as part of a case study on why we’re not sure that we’d describe our hiring process as difficult, and we think you’ll learn even more about us if you read it.
This is the employer's chance to tell you why you should work for them. The information provided is from their perspective.
