Do you have an idea about how your dream job looks like? A workplace, where you can be yourself and work with inspiring people on forward-looking projects? Maybe even a spinning that starts with the phrase “I know it might sound stupid, but I always wanted to try…”?
We at ThoughtWorks love dreams and ideas like that! The incompleted, the informal, the ones that maybe sometimes aren’t taken seriously. As often exactly these are the ones that conceal unexpected possibilities. We should all take the time to listen to thoughts that concern us like that. Because these will take us forward in a constantly changing economy and environment.
Everyone should have a dream
A dream that represents oneself and is something unique. Our colleague Dan McClure, Design Lead at ThoughtWorks also had one.
Our culture is hard to describe. We can’t promise that you will find your dream job here. But we can tell you more about us: We come to work as ourselves. We enjoy each other’s company. We value honesty and transparency. We abhor and reject discrimination and inequality and promote diversity in all its forms. We proudly, passionately and actively strive to make both ThoughtWorks and our industry more reflective and inclusive of the society that we serve. You will not find bureaucracy and hierarchies at ThoughtWorks. What you find is a dynamic, collaborative, transparent, non-hierarchal, and ego-free culture. It brings out the best in you and encourages you to question things, to think around the corner and to work with the newest technologies - without restrictions.
At the heart of ThoughtWorks is an ambitious mission: to be a proactive agent of progressive change in the world. Aware of our own privilege, we strive to see the world from the perspective of the oppressed, the powerless and the invisible.
