One of the best, and hardest, questions candidates ask our recruiters is: ‘What will I actually be doing as a consultant at Thoughtworks?’
As a consultant at Thoughtworks, you are free to create bold, future-focused solutions for clients from a variety of industries. You could influence the digital strategy of a retail giant, launch a brand new mobile application for a bank or redesign platforms using event sourcing and intelligent data pipelines.
The best part? You will do all of the above on collaborative, inclusive and autonomous teams who are empowered to make an extraordinary impact.
How we work
We believe we grow best when we learn collectively in a safe and supportive environment. Sharing knowledge and feedback while teaching each other helps us become more impactful as teams and individuals.
When people are free to be themselves regardless of their age, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability, background or identity, great things happen for individuals, teams, clients and Thoughtworks overall.
It’s not enough for us to simply build great technologies for our clients. We also aim to transform how they work and shift their mindsets to deliver long-lasting value to their business and help them achieve their goals.
As one of the original pioneers of agile, our practices are always evolving. We’re constantly expanding and refining how we think about engineering excellence, ensuring fast, frequent and high-quality value delivery.
Depending on the scope of a client’s needs, teams may vary in size and composition. While teams can and will have a wide variety of technologists, you’ll typically find these four key Thoughtworkers: Developer, Business Analyst, Quality Analyst and Designer.
The team magicians who transform user stories into high-quality software. They combine creativity and empathy with analysis and usability to fulfill a client’s needs while advocating best practices.
The facilitators of change and understanding. BAs define a business problem and put a plan into action. They bring trust, a knack for storytelling and a focus on value to team and client alike.
The shield that guards quality and value. They infuse a testing mindset into the team and always advocate for quality throughout the development process as well as building in automated testing.
The user advocate and enabler; aesthetically-minded technologists who ensure amazing, accessible digital experiences. Experience designers combine research, stakeholder input and best practice to craft functional and beautiful experiences.
These data experts think disruptively to provide pragmatic, scalable and robust solutions to complex challenges and processes related to pipelines, platforms, organization, governance and data quality.
The enablers of innovation, Infrastructure Consultants encourage teams and clients to adopt a DevOps culture, breaking out of traditional ways of working, evolving to more customer-focused and agile approaches.
