Our Principal Technologists play an important role in the consulting organisation, helping shape the client portfolio while influencing and transforming large enterprise organisations into digital businesses. Principals also mentor and guide our development community to drive the growth of Thoughtworks’ internal capabilities.

As a Principal Technologist at Thoughtworks you may fit into one of three roles. Perhaps you are a Coding Architect and enjoy bringing hands-on best coding practices knowledge to the team, while helping get a delivery project up and running. Maybe you are a Tech Lead or a Tech Manager educating large enterprises on evolutionary architecture and forward-thinking software delivery practices to create the change we want to see in the industry. Thoughtworks Principals have gone on to become CTOs, CIOs and leaders within the tech industry.

There's no typical day or engagement for our Principal Consultants. You might spend a few weeks with a new client or be full-time on a delivery project for 12 months. It's varied and you thrive on these different challenges.
