Describe your experience so far at Thoughtworks in one or two words: Diversity,T-shape
What does your job involve?
Depending on the project assignment but basically I will focus on making the end to end experience complete from start to finish. This includes users research, solutioning as UI and also collaboration with others team members i.e. Developers, BAs on the iteration.
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
It’s not only to create a nice visualization but also to understand many aspects of business, design, technology and context of use then you can come up with a good enough solution. As an XD designer, I have a chance to be involved in the process to create an experience from understanding context until deliverable to the end customer. It’s easy to see how your products impact the end users and I commit to improve until it works.
We’d love to hear about your career journey. Can you talk about what led you to Thoughtworks and your decision to join Thoughtworks?
My background is as a visual designer from a digital agency. At that time I would like to change my career path from visualize designer to UX designer then I have decided to join the UX community in Thailand. There I had a chance to get to know other Thoughtworkers which made me feel that Thoughtworkers are people who are full of energy. They ask the right questions and dare to challenge. I believe that if I join this company, I would have a chance to work with great people who could uplift my questioning skills. .
What has been your favorite part of your Thoughtworks career to date?
I was born and raised in Thailand, it’s not super easy for everybody to give feedback and receive feedback which can help you to truly improve. It’s necessary to be not too aggressive and too complimentary. But here, I found a lot of people have this skill set. This is what we usually encourage everyone to do as part of our culture. For me, giving or receiving feedback in Thoughtworks happens easily and frequently as we just go grabbing a cup of coffee.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking of joining Thoughtworks?
If you are a person who is open to possibility and seeks a challenge, this place is for you.
Anything else that you wanted to add about your Thoughtworks journey?
There are so many opportunities for you to explore. I have seen some of my friends switch from one role to another. The company gives us opportunities to take control of our own career paths but you need to prove that you are worth it!
