Our diverse leadership is comprised of courageous boundary breakers who bring a future-focused approach to our vision.

Thoughtworks is a global software consultancy. Over our 25+ year history, we have partnered with our clients to solve ambitious business problems where technology is the differentiator. With our roots in custom systems and agile software delivery, we’re at the forefront of defining the tech principles used by some of the world’s most successful organizations.

Leadership pathways

In our Leadership Pathways series, Thoughtworks leaders from around the world reflect on their career journeys, experiences in leadership and advice for technologists. 

At Thoughtworks, you are free to lead in whatever way resonates with you. We asked some of our inspiring leaders how they view leadership, especially in the context of our unique culture where everyone can participate, share opinions and speak out.

Our CEO, Guo Xiao, shares his views on continual learning, how those with traditional backgrounds can thrive in tech, and why curiosity is so important for growth.

What's it like to co-lead a region? Marta Saft and Carol Cintra partner to lead Thoughtworks Brazil and they find their personalities, strengths and backgrounds complement each other to bring a unique dynamic to their roles.

Timely business and industry insights for digital leaders.
