The Top-Consultant Team

This thread will provide a wealth of information about consulting careers at ThoughtWorks Inc. and ThoughtWorks consulting jobs to candidates looking for new consultancy opportunities.

In producing the recently published Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms (see: http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx), we have amassed company profiles for 189 consulting employers. As many of the discussions started on the forum revolve around what it is like to work at different firms, we thought we'd create anchor threads for the firms we have profiles for, to create a place where readers can share additional information about consulting jobs and careers at each of these firms - in this case ThoughtWorks consulting jobs.

Below is copied the profile information about ThoughtWorks Inc. If you know of other sources of information about careers at ThoughtWorks, or can provide your own insights of working or interviewing there, or can add anything else constructive for people searching the site for information about them - please reply to this thread and add your input. We'll roll this out to lots of consulting employers over the coming weeks and hopefully can create a great repository of information about consulting employers like ThoughtWorks Inc.

1. Name of consulting firm

ThoughtWorks Inc.

2. About our company

ThoughtWorks is not your typical company. Talented, driven and principled people who are passionate about software, brought together because they want to do something amazing. Amazing work for our clients is the front line, revolutionizing the way the industry works is the long term goal, and gradual effect. Improving society for everyone is behind all of our actions. ThoughtWorks was founded by Roy Singham in a Chicago basement in 1993. Roy’s formula for success from the start was ‘Attitude, Aptitude, and Integrity’ – he built ThoughtWorks upon the firm belief that communities of talented, driven, and principled people could move mountains.

Today we employ over 1600 people across the globe. We’ve experienced huge and rapid change, but we have held fast to our aspirations to attract the world’s best knowledge workers and our mission to shake up the bloated IT industry. Our values underpin our devotion to our customers’ success and everything we do. Whether we’re building a new custom system for a client, fixing a project that’s tied up in knots, or helping to make a software development organization more productive, ThoughtWorks delivers. Our customers start seeing benefits in weeks, not months or years, a radical change for some clients and partners caught up in the inertia of working as they’ve always worked. Software development with ThoughtWorks feels and looks different: it is fast, evolutionary, even fun. There are no secrets – you can walk into a ThoughtWorks project room and see exactly where we are at a single glance. We take good ideas – best practices like collaboration, feedback, transparency, and testing – and we build them into the fabric of the way we work. We’ve spent years, and many early mistakes, building up the set of ThoughtWorks’ core capabilities – reusable approaches that we believe to be world class. Of course, every problem is different, and our commitment to satisfying our clients far outstrips any affinity to a set of practices. We are based in the United States, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India and China and we work with clients from each location.

3. Types of clients we serve

For more than 15 years ThoughtWorks has been working with hundreds of clients, many of them Fortunre 100 companies, start ups and not for profit organisations. We focus on solving the technically challenging and mission critical problems for early adopters of new technologies, and work across many industries and geographies including the Financial Services, Media, Retail, Telco and Energy sectors including in the UK; Barclays, HSBC, C4, BBC, The Trainline, MoneySupermarket.com, Vodafone, Nokia, and edfenergy.

4. Types of recruitment we are most likely to be undertaking in the next 18 months

Milkround recruiting (i.e. university finalists)

Experienced hire recruiting

5. When candidates choose to join our firm it is usually because

It isn’t easy to build this kind of organization in today’s world of short-term focus driven by fast profit. We consider it part of our mission to sustain and improve ThoughtWorks as a place where exceptional people have an exceptional experience – one that becomes so much a part of them that it’s hard for them to imagine being anywhere else. We work hard and we play hard, we have created an environment where you are working amongst the best, so being ‘top of the class’ isn’t really an option, but being challenged is. We look to do work for companies who share our values and principles, and projects which we believe in. In addition to this filter, we are building out a successful and innovative social engagement model which means we can make a significant impact through our skills, even more so than by donating cash.
