Action highlights


Retention and people policies

The fantastic diversity of Thoughtworkers has created our ‘secret sauce’ culture, the main reason people join, and stay. Our policies are not set in stone, and have been created with equity for marginalized and under-represented groups in mind.

Good suggestions often become policy, for example supporting gender transitioning and adoption leave or increasing our maternity, paternity, and fertility treatment leave. We do regular compensation analysis and pay parity checks.  

Examples of our work in this space:

Word from the top

At Thoughtworks, we are committed to driving real change to make tech reflective of the world around us and building a more equitable and inclusive future. Gender diversity is something we are particularly passionate about and we're proud of the work we've done as an organization to champion equality for women in the tech industry.

Rebecca Parsons, our Chief Technology Officer sums it up nicely, “Our continued growth has shown that idealism can harmonize with great technical work. Social good and profit, yes it's possible. Now is not the time for us to rest on our laurels, let's redouble our efforts as one community. We are not done, not by a long shot.”

Career and jobs

Application tips

Our philosophy

When it comes to interviewing, we focus on outcomes instead of processes. We believe your experience should be collaborative and enjoyable. Your attributes, attitude and credibility mean more to us than your pedigree.

Our thought process

We aim to have no more than three interview stages, which could entail multiple steps per stage. While each role has its own set of attributes, our overall goal is for you to get to know us and vice versa. The bottom line? We simply want to hire the right people for our projects by assessing your potential to learn and grow. That’s it.

Some tips from us

Whether you’re about to click the ‘apply’ button or head into your first interview, we want you to feel confident (and excited!) to meet with us. To help you feel more prepared, members of our recruiting team have shared some of their top tips and insight into what to expect from the interview process.

Our great workplace

Be yourself

Your initial chat with a recruiter will be casual and candid. Don’t worry about being anything but yourself. We’re getting to know each other, so authenticity is key. (And ask a lot of questions!)

Think outside the tech

We’re an opinionated bunch here at Thoughtworks. We’re passionate about topics like social change, inclusivity and the unintended consequences of technology. We’ll talk about some of these things with you so we can get to know each other better.

No trick questions, no one-upping

Each person you meet will be working with you, getting to know your attributes and observing how you work. We’ve worked hard to cultivate an inclusive, vibrant community of Thoughtworkers and we hope that resonates with you when you meet us.
