ThoughtWorks is a global software company and community of passionate, purpose-led individuals that specialise in software consulting, delivery and products.
We work with people and organizations who have ambitious missions - whether they are in the commercial, social or government sectors. We set up smart teams who love challenges and think disruptively to help our clients succeed. Our Agile development tools help our clients continuously improve and deliver quality software.
We are focused on helping our industry improve, and believe in sharing what we learn. We do this by writing books, blogging, running events, talking at conferences, and championing open source.
We are strong believers in the power of software and technology as tools for social change. Through our Social Impact Program, we collaborate with organizations with a humanitarian mission and broad reach, helping them use technology to make an impact.
ThoughtWorks has grown from a small group in Chicago to a company of over 3000 passionate people spread across 30 offices in 13 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Germany, India, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Our mission is to better humanity through software and help drive the creation of a socially and economically just world. We bring together the most capable, driven and passionate people.
The three pillar model includes:
Wherever we are in the world, ThoughtWorkers share the same cultural characteristics and imperatives. ThoughtWorks is a place where inspired people come to form connections and learn new skills. Our rule is; be adventurous. Remove the constraints of enforced objectives and open the door to serendipity, immersion, and the fun of not knowing what's going to happen or who you are going to meet next. The collaborative (literally cubicle-less) working environment nurtures ownership. The organisation also treasures and encourages a healthy work life balance.
We come to work as ourselves. We enjoy each other’s company. We value honesty and transparency. Appearances and backgrounds aren’t important to us; ideas and doing the right thing are.
We abhor and reject discrimination and inequality and promote diversity in all its forms. We proudly, passionately and actively strive to make both ThoughtWorks and our industry more reflective and inclusive of the society that we serve.
Do the right thing Attitude, aptitude and integrity Service to others and society over self Solidarity over charity Serve holistic goals over achieving targets Personal and organizational transparency Curiosity, creativity and passion Fail fast and publish our mistakes Intolerant of intolerance No jerks High values alignment, loosely coupled
ThoughtWorks on Bridging the Gender Gap
ThoughtWorks is on the hunt for outstanding talent that will win the gender war. With one-third of our working strength being women, we are that much closer to creating an equal playing field for the company’s male and female employees.
ThoughtWorks has introduced a 50-50 gender hiring quota, to boost our female workforce. We bridge the gender gap in IT with programs like Vapasi; a ThoughtWorks India’s initiative to help female IT professionals rejoin the industry. We also carry out technology mentoring especially for women's colleges. ThoughtWorks is particularly proud of having women in significant leadership positions across geographies.
