Matt Simons

Director of Social and Economic Justice

I am helping ThoughtWorks make the struggle for social and economic justice an integral part of our business and social model.

The Interview

The thing I love most about my work is

being pushed to and sometimes beyond my limits of learning - with the chance to apply most of what I learn immediately.

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

innovators and change leaders across fifteen countries - from entrepreneurs in Bangalore to activists in Berlin.

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

to seek out opportunities that scare you just a little bit.

My geeky passion is

exploring the boundaries of urban farming in Chicago - this year we grew figs, lemongrass and a curry tree!
