Looking after our people

The benefits of being a Thoughtworker

At Thoughtworks you will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn from those around you, and be a part of creating disruptive technology.

We support you with a well rounded and generous benefits package to meet your health and well-being needs. 

Personal development plan

At Thoughtworks we offer several coaching and mentoring programs, as well as onboarding programs for new employees to help immerse themselves in Thoughtworks. We provide a personal development allowance which can be used for personal and professional development. With access to internship programs, seminars and conferences you can learn new skills and stay at the top of your field.

Parental leave and fertility policy

Family is important to us, which is why we offer generous parental leave. Our parental leave policy allows 6 weeks full pay for paternity, 6 months full pay (and a further 6 months leave available) for either maternity or shared parental leave. Thoughtworks understands that through IVF, fertility testing and child-loss employees need to feel supported, which is why we have a comprehensive Fertility Policy to be used at your discretion.

Health and wellness

Thoughtworks cares about your health and mental well-being; that's why we offer the private healthcare provider Vitality. Vitality Health makes it easy to get fast access to high-quality healthcare while supporting you to stay healthy with discounts and rewards across a range of health partners. Some of the rewards you are entitled to are gym, travel and spa day discounts, as well as free cinema tickets. We also offer a 24-hour helpline to support you through any of life's issues or problems.

Income protection, critical illness and life insurance

Sometimes the unexpected happens and you’re unable to work, so unable to pay your bills. At Thoughtworks we have income protection insurance and critical illness protection to cover those costs right through the recovery period, so you can just concentrate on getting better. We provide you with life insurance to help protect your family financially, if you were to pass away during your time at Thoughtworks.

Pension scheme

We want to help you save money for later life, that’s why at Thoughtworks we offer a competitive contributory pension scheme.

Annual leave

We understand the importance of annual leave and flexible working on your productivity and morale. That's why at Thoughtworks we encourage you to take your annual days off from work and relax. During your working week, we offer flexible working to accommodate your lifestyle.

Annual travel insurance

At Thoughtworks your travel requirements will differ depending on your role and region. We ensure that your professional and personal travel insurance are covered to give you peace of mind when travelling.
