ThoughtWorks is a global software consultancy. Our developers have been contributing code to major organisations and open source projects for over 25 years. They’ve also been writing books, speaking at conferences and helping push software development forward, changing companies and even industries along the way.
As consultants, we work with our clients to ensure we’re evolving their technology and empowering adaptive mindsets to meet their business goals. You could influence the digital strategy of a retail giant (timely!), build a bold new mobile application for a bank or redesign platforms using event sourcing and intelligent data pipelines.
We connect 1.5 billion active shoppers with the things they need and love. Our client’s technology takes an algorithmic approach to predict what user we show an ad to, when, and for what products. The dataset is about 50 petabytes in Hadoop (more than 120 TB extra per day) and we take less than 10ms to respond to an ad request. This is truly big data and machine learning without the buzzwords. If scale and complexity excite you, join us!
