ThoughtWorks isn’t your average company, so we don’t hire average people.
From a technology perspective, ThoughtWorks is synonymous with innovation. We’ve been at the forefront of innovation on the Java platform, and have pioneered the use of techniques such as Inversion of Control and Domain Specific Languages. We’ve made significant contributions to the Java Open Source community via projects such as CruiseControl, XStream and Selenium.
ThoughtWorks is also a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and our people provide thought leadership to key Microsoft initiatives such as the Patterns and Practices effort. Most recently we’re becoming famous for the work we’re doing with alternative .net languages like IronRuby, Iron Python, F# and Ioke. We champion Ruby on Rails and ThoughtWorks is already the natural home for some of the world’s leading Ruby developers.
By joining ThoughtWorks, you become part of a community. ThoughtWorkers are a passionate, diverse bunch. Typical ThoughtWorker traits include enjoying arguing about tiny details of language implementation, complaining about Maven and discussing how close to 1K they are. People join because they get to talk to the people who wrote the books that influenced them (and often get invited to help review or contribute to the author’s next one) and work with the people who wrote the tools they couldn’t get their previous company to use.
We hire only the most talented, passionate people. We're seeking a creative approach to problem-solving and a track record of technical innovation. We work almost exclusively on customer site providing a mix of delivery and consulting services, so you’ll be flexible about travel, and willing to travel extensively as part of your role. You want to go the extra mile, and relish the idea of being part of a community that extends beyond the work we do for our customers.
We’re looking for developers who have broad technology experience in Java, C#/.Net, or Ruby; polyglot programmers are especially welcome.
To be considered, you'll have experience of the following:
Being a consultancy means all of our consultants should be open to travel. Most of our consultants travel 80% of the week and home for weekends. We do everything we can to make life here as easy as possible and do our best to take people’s personal situations into account. We think it’s a small price to pay to work with us.
Our North America offices are in Atlanta, Calgary, Chicago, Dallas, Manhattan, San Francisco, and Toronto. Relocation isn't necessary if you live in one of these cities. If you live elsewhere, please let us know to which one you are willing to relocate to.
