The Interview

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

You need to chart your own journey. The rest of the organisation will probably be there to support or guide you but you need to drive a lot of it yourself

The thing I'm most proud of from my time here is

Being able to make a significant difference in the businesses of many clients and making a difference to the lives of some people we work with

One of the most interesting stories I recall from my time at ThoughtWorks was when

Involved pranks I played on people ranging from our Chairman to some clients, most of which cannot be named for reasons of personal security

The most interesting thing I've learned on the job is

There's always someone smarter than you here

If I could fix one of the world's problems, I'd put my powers to use on behalf of

Education providers in developing countries worldwide

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

Brazil, Hong Kong, India, South Africa, Uganda, United States, United Kingdom
