Because you asked
One of the best, and hardest, questions candidates ask our recruiters is:
‘What will I actually be doing at ThoughtWorks?’
While we have roles and job descriptions, the conversation doesn’t begin and end there. Being consultants, we (annoyingly) like to answer questions with questions.
We start with ‘What would you like to be doing?’
If you’re looking for strictly defined roles with linear paths of progression, this might make you a bit uncomfortable (we think that’s a good thing.) Your path here is mostly self directed, with support and guidance. So, for example, if you want to try your hand in a specific industry, you can. We’d advise you to do some reading, shadow someone on a current project, and let us know about your plan. We’ll do our best to find a project to grow you in the right direction.
If you want experience working in a different tech stack, or if you want to shift gears completely,
the same applies. It starts with you, some investigation and learning, and goes from there.
