If you see something that fits, send us your application — we'd love to hear from you!

Come see us at the many events we host in our offices around the world.

Well, some of them are ours, however a lot of them are run by tech or community groups that love hanging out in our spaces. Joining us for one of these events, whether or not it's specifically a recruiting event, is a great way to learn more about what it's like to work with us, and you'll get to meet us in person. Curious? Check out all of our events here. Don't forget to look out for any registration requirements, you'll be needing that info.

You may have heard that our interview process is tough.

We've heard that too. Though, we like to think of the process as thoughtful. Our application process has been carefully designed so you can get to know us and vice versa. We wouldn't describe ourselves as tough people though, so you can expect to meet a friendly, welcoming bunch throughout your application process. We have an ambitious mission to help drive the creation of a socially and economically just world - we're looking for likeminded people. We don't intimidate. We do make the effort to get to know you, and we welcome you to apply.

Here's what to expect

The phone screen: talk to a human

Think of the phone screen as the start of our relationship. We're eager to get to know you and we'll want to know about your background and interests. It's your time to get to know us and it's a great opportunity for you to ask everything you're dying to know about: what it's like to be a ThoughtWorker, the work we do for our clients, how often you'll be travelling, the many perks of the job and more. We're also happy to answer any questions you may have about the rest of the interview process. The more prepared you are for this conversation, the more productive it will be for everyone.

Submit a technical assignment: do your thing

Our hiring process is based on the philosophy of show us, not tell us. If you're a developer, we'll want to see your code. If you're a business analyst, we'll ask you to do a facilitation plan. We have a neat little assignment for each role here, they should be fun and it's your chance to really shine. This step in the process is designed for the many of us who get a little sweaty-palmed in an interview scenario (we've all been there, right?!). Word to the wise: this step matters, so put some heart into it. Pressed for time? Let your friendly recruiter know - they can help shuffle things around to give you the time you need. We want to revolutionize IT - that's a big mission, and this is your chance to show us how you can help us with that.

On-site interviews: come meet us

After we've seen what you can do, we'll bring you into the office to meet with us in person. You'll participate in a series of interviews that have been crafted to suit your role and experience. You'll be talking with lots of different ThoughtWorkers and all that fun can be rather tiring - make sure you get a good night's rest before the big day. Our culture is really important to us, and because consulting means that you'll be constantly exposed to different teams and people, meeting a broad cross-section of ThoughtWorkers helps us both to be sure that we're right for each other.

You'll also take some assessments, which are admittedly challenging - but keep in mind that we've all done them! Some people even like them. Weirdos.

The decision: get excited

We'll come to a decision as quickly as we can. During this time, your recruiter will stay in touch with you. If you're feeling lost or just impatient - pick up the phone! Or shoot an email. Whatever works. They can give you updates on the decision making process or answer any questions you may have.
