About

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 4000 passionate people spread across 42 offices in 15 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Ecuador, Germany, India, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Mission

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:

  1. Run a sustainable business
  2. Champion software excellence and revolutionize the IT industry
  3. Advocate passionately for social and economic justice

Culture

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. 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 are against 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.

At ThoughtWorks, we truly believe in the power diversity. We actively encourage heterogeneity of thoughts, perspectives, ideas, solutions and cultures. Diversity enhances our innovation & ability to adapt to the fast-changing environments and needs of our customers and helps power our collective impact.

Nurturing Inclusivity at ThoughtWorks

ThoughtWorks believes that consistent effort is what can create an inclusive work environment. Over the years, we have recognized certain aspects of the work environment that go a long way in encouraging women to continue being a part of the IT community. These include everything from giving women unbiased opportunities to learn and grow, to crafting adequate support systems at work, to helping women integrate their work and personal life seamlessly, and then some. When women feel a genuine sense of belonging and purpose at the workplace, they excel at what they do.

We, at ThoughtWorks India, have been experimenting with, and bettering initiatives crafted for women in the tech community. We have designed award-winning campaigns such as #TalkTechToHer, to create better careers paths and opportunities for senior women technologists and encourage them to take up long-term technology roles that align with their career goals. We also have back-to-work programs like Vapasi, that provide a platform for women developers on their career breaks to restart their careers through hands-on training sessions. We have made great strides in increasing diversity at all levels. And today, 40% of our employees in India are women and 33% of technology-facing roles are fulfilled by women. We strive towards and stand with those committed to driving real change to make technology reflective of the world around us.
