Can you spot poorly written code?

Would you like the chance to work with multiple Fortune 500 clients in a given year? 

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, consider becoming a ThoughtWorker.

As software consultants, our teams work on a wide variety of projects alongside and for our clients. You could influence the digital strategy of a retail giant, build a new mobile application for a bank or redesign platforms using event sourcing and intelligent data pipelines.

  • Utilizing DevOps tools and practices to build and deploy software in the most efficient ways.

Responsibilities:

  • Able to write code that is easy to evolve and read; able to spot bad code.
  • You should also be familiar with practices like TDD, SOLID principals, OO design, domain modeling, and pair programming.
  • Using continuous delivery practices to improve software delivery speed.
  • Experience working in collaborative, product-focused teams to build innovative customer experiences.
  • Applying the latest technology thinking from our tech radar to client problems.
  • Resilience in dealing with tough, sometimes ambiguous, situations.
  • Take ownership and accountability beyond individual deliverables.
  • A hunger to improve and drive your own learning is a must!

Base Qualifications:

  • Minimum 3 years of professional experience using two or more development languages (Candidates with Ruby experience is high priority at the moment)
  • Ability to write high-quality, well-tested code. We don’t limit ourselves to one language, but experience in the latest Object-Oriented technology is required.
  • Experience working with Agile, Lean and/or Continuous Delivery approaches such as Continuous Integration, TDD, Infrastructure as Code, etc. is necessary.
  • Knowledge and appreciation of cloud technology such as AWS, Docker or Kubernetes is a plus.
  • Ability to travel.

Perks:

  • Exposure to a huge variety of client engagements. You could be influencing the digital strategy of a retail giant, building a new mobile application for a bank or redesigning platforms using event sourcing & intelligent data pipelines. You’ll use the latest Lean & Agile thinking, solve critical problems and challenge yourself every day.
  • Allowances for books, conferences & training, cell phone, local transit, and high-speed internet
  • Personal development programs and training tailored to the career path that you choose
  • Opportunities for global assignments/travel
