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 3600 passionate people spread across 40 offices in 14 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. 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 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.

On Bridging the Gender Gap

We believe that women are critical to the future of technology and we are looking to dramatically increase the representation of women in the technical workforce. We are creating a culture where both men and women can thrive - and in effect, positively influence the industry norm. Today, 39% of our employees in India are women and 33% of technology-facing roles are fulfilled by women .

Over the years, ThoughtWorks India has been experimenting with, and bettering initiatives crafted for women in the tech community. While programs like Vapasi and Women in Technology meetups, coach and mentor women returning to work from a career break, we also run initiatives like #TalkTechToHer that wants to elevate the conversation around inclusivity and drive an important message that women can achieve as much as men, or more, when they are presented with opportunities, without biases.
