Be a lifelong learner

We're big on supporting growth. If you’re new to tech, your journey will begin with Thoughtworks University (TWU): an immersive five-week program designed by and for Thoughtworkers to ensure a smooth transition into consulting and our way of working. And all new joiners benefit from our First Year Experience which provides resources, mentorship and networking from day one to 365. In addition, we offer all employees unlimited access to online learning via Udemy and an annual personal development budget for training programs, conferences, books and more to keep you up to date with the latest tech trends and industry knowledge.

Supporting inclusion, equity and diversity

Diversity and inclusion have the power to create transformative social change. As we continue to grow and evolve, the pursuit of this remains at the heart of our purpose, culture and work. Our commitment to positive social change is one of the reasons why people join Thoughtworks and it often becomes one of the main reasons why they stay with us. Our employee resource groups include Gender Justice, New Masculinities communities and more. We also collaborate with external partners including PUCE (Universidad Católica del Ecuador), KISTH (Kichwa Institute of Science, Technology and Humanities) and Grupo LILA.

Putting purpose-led into action

Our commitment to positive social change is one of the reasons why people join Thoughtworks and it often becomes one of the main reasons why they stay with us. Through our social change projects and thought leadership like our Responsible Tech Playbook we aim to inspire our people and all technologists to create better tech for all. Our annual Social Impact Report also provides a deeper view of our work in this space.
