Describe your experience so far at Thoughtworks in one or two words: Fun, challenging
What does your job involve?
Work together with clients to identify improvements, deliver high quality software with agile methodology and good engineering practices.
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
I love problem solving, coding, and that satisfying moment when the code for my current task works. These are why I chose to be a software developer, and what I am doing allows me to experience this everyday. I'm also passionate about how making adjustments, sometimes very small, can have a big impact and make people's life easier. Here I got a chance to do that for both our clients and their end customers.
We’d love to hear about your career journey. Can you talk about what led you to Thoughtworks and your decision to join Thoughtworks?
I had been an SAP developer for over 10 years. When I left SAP to become a backend developer, I joined a team where we adopted all the Thoughtworks practices and I was so impressed. When I learned that Thoughtworks has an office in Thailand, I started doing some research. The more I read, the more I was drawn to the company. The main reason I decided to apply when I only had 6 months of backend developer experience was that the company is open to career changers.
What has been your favorite part of your Thoughtworks career to date?
To be working with passionate, talented people where I can learn from and always ready to help.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking of joining Thoughtworks?
