From Startup to Tech Titan
From Startup to Tech Titan



We help audacious, fast growing startups build evolutionary technology platforms that power the tech titans of tomorrow. 

The growth dilemma

According to the 2016 ScaleUp Survey, 82% of scaleup leaders say that finding the right tech talent remains one of the top three issues that prevent them from achieving their growth targets. As startups often need to make rapid changes and directional shifts to their technology platform, it is much harder to source technologists that would have the right skills to support future changes.

Scale with flexibility

Your product is gaining traction, your investors are pushing hard for the next milestone. What's holding you back? A common theme in high growth startup is a monolithic platform built for speed, not scale. The technology doesn't support aggressive expansion.

At ThoughtWorks, we bring 25+ years of no nonsense technology, for some of the world’s fastest growing companies. We take care of anything technology:


Need to Refactor your existing code base, build microservices, or deliver a new tech platform? We help you define the best way to address your technology and business challenges. 


Need to simplify the user flows to improve customer experience and demonstrate improvement in operational efficiency, or don’t have the capacity to launch a strategic product? We help you build the right products in weeks, not months.


We help you build a platform with technology that top tech talent wants to use. We pair with your people using modern software delivery approaches. We can share our 25+ years of experience hiring top tech talent with HR, or provide an interim CTO to help with burning tech needs.

Our clients dream big. We help them achieve their vision faster, delivering results in weeks, not months and years.

Distributed agile:

The trainline was struggling to meet customer and regulatory demand with high costs and a legacy platform that it was unable to scale effectively.

With ThoughtWorks distributed agile approach The Trainline was able to scale its platform and embrace continuous delivery and automation throughout their technology organisation.

As a result of our distributed partnership:

  • Accelerate development to an average of 10 releases per day
  • Reduce average time to market for applications from 5 months to 6-12 weeks
  • Implement automated testing technologies that have reduced testing times to half overall development time

The shift in the organisation was palpable. If you look at our performance from 2009 onwards, we significantly improved earnings in a recession which is just extraordinary.
