Why your company?


"I met them at a TargetJobs Event in my first year of university and fell in love with the company. I kept in contact with the graduate recruiter for two years and then applied as I was getting ready to complete university."
Graduate, Manchester is my home office but I am currently working in Germany!
"I was impressed by ThoughtWorks' attitude towards social responsibility. It didn't feel like the simple PR exercise that others did."

"The investment my company makes in encouraging and bringing women into the tech industry."

"The culture and people from the company that I met during the many events that ThoughtWorks runs."
Graduate, London
"I felt like my values and the values of ThoughtWorks were very well aligned. I liked their three-pillar principals of economic viability, code craftsmanship and promoting social and economic justice through technology. The company's reputation and the reputation of many prominent ThoughtWorkers was also an enormous draw and I felt immediately at home from my first visit to the offices. I wanted to get as much practical experience as possible and felt that a consultancy with TW's attitude towards learning and growth would be the best place for me to gain this. I also just really liked all the people I met that work here and I still do."

"The company is private and answers to no one. This enables us to spend our money on trying to make as much difference in the world as possible instead of paying it out to stock-holders who are just interested in us because we earn money. This means we can try and do a lot of cool things like revolutionising healthcare in India/Bangladesh and decentralising the power on the internet."
