Find a job you like the look of and apply for it. One of our talent scouts will take a look and get back to you. As soon as we can.
Some of our regions run bootcamps so you might be able to sign up and show us what you're made of (and do most of the stuff below in one weekend).
Most times you'll have a telephone interview with one of our recruiting team. We know the temptation isn't to take this very seriously but our recruiters really can help you work out if ThoughtWorks is going to be right for you. They are also the guardians of our culture, and they will end your process here if they don't feel there's a good match. ThoughtWorks isn't for everybody, and our recruiters will help you work this out.
Our hiring process is based on the philosophy of show us, don't tell us what you can do. If you're a developer, we will want to see your code. If you're a BA, we'll get you to do a facilitation plan. If you're an accountant we might ask you to do our tax return.
We finish lots of people's process at this stage. Many of them come back again later and go on to be fabulous ThoughtWorkers.
After we've seen what you can do, we'll bring you into the office. You'll take some assessments – which are designed to make your brain hurt. You'll have a number of interviews with all sorts of people. We think hard about who you'll get to meet, and there is method in our madness. We deliberately show you the things that other organizations wouldn't, to see if you're ready for ThoughtWorks, and if we're ready for you.
Our process doesn't always go as fast or as smoothly as you, or we, might like. That's because we're a consultancy, doing amazing work for our clients, and we don't want to slow that down.
If you don't see the benefit in a process that digs beneath the CV, or don't have the patience to read this explanation of our consensus-based style, then ThoughtWorks probably isn't for you.
