We're big on supporting growth. If you’re new to tech, we will set you up for success with an immersive six-week training program designed to prepare entry-level hires transition from academia (or a non-technical background) to a professional tech consulting environment. 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. We recognise and celebrate the diversity of our employees, including our LGBTQIA+ community members. We offer ample resources for those seeking to transition their sex or apply for transition leave, including medical insurance for transition-related surgeries, workplace flexibility/leave, EAP support with counseling and more.

We care for the health of our Thoughtworkers and offer a number of programs and benefits to support this.

We aid our employees and their dependents with hospitalization benefits including COVID-19 home care support. We offer coverage for members belonging to the LGBTQ+ community, domestic partners-no questions asked and for differently-abled and financially-dependent siblings. We also offer flexibility to port the policy even after you leave Thoughtworks.
