Do you want to help business and technology executives to build modern digital businesses ?

Thoughtworks is a global software consultancy with an aim to create a positive impact on the world through technology. Our community of technologists thinks disruptively to deliver pragmatic solutions for our clients' most complex challenges. We are curious minds who come together as collaborative and inclusive teams to push boundaries, free to be ourselves and make our mark in tech.

As consultants, we work with our clients to ensure we’re evolving their technology and empowering adaptive mindsets to meet their business goals. You could influence the digital strategy of a retail giant, build a bold new mobile application for a bank or redesign platforms using event sourcing and intelligent data pipelines. You will use the latest Lean and Agile thinking, create pragmatic solutions to solve mission-critical problems and challenge yourself every day.

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will advise business and technology executives on how to build modern digital businesses - from strategy to execution - by enabling the organizational, technology and people capabilities needed to succeed in a hyper-digitized world.
  • You will proactively build relationships with technology and business executives while acting as an ambassador for Thoughtworks.
  • You will champion best practices, tools and offerings like Modern Digital Business, Digital Fluency Model, Lean Enterprise, Tech Radar, EDGE, DPS, Data Mesh, CX Design and Clean Tech.
  • You will create new offerings, points of view and workshop material based on client feedback and market trends in collaboration with North America and global colleagues.
  • You will partner with Demand, Market and Service Line teams to win client pursuits.
  • You will partner with Marketing teams to develop extraordinary material to support internal and external demand generation and education activities.
  • You will support recruiting activities while ensuring we select the best candidates in terms not only of technical skills but also their alignment with our culture.
  • You will take ownership and accountability to coach, mentor and develop other Thoughtworkers.
  • You will take ownership and accountability beyond individual deliverables, always pushing the envelope in order to deliver awesome results for our clients
  • You will take ownership and accountability on key financial metrics: revenue, margin and utilization.
  • You will learn, digest and subsequently be the ambassador of Thoughtworks latest technology thinking to solve client problems.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • You have at least 15 years of experience as a senior level consultant and/or technology executive role.
  • You’re skilled at building relationships with C-suite executives and feel confident having conversations at the intersection of technology and business.
  • You’re a team player first, second and last.
  • You’re willing and able to commit to travel to client sites in order to solve their business problems
  • You’re resilient in ambiguous situations and can approach challenges from multiple perspectives
  • You have experience with Agile and/or Lean approaches
  • Bonus points if you have experience on developing business cases to articulate the value of technology initiatives towards achieving business goals
A few important things to know:

While we’ve traditionally been a traveling consultancy, travel is not required for this role at the moment. We anticipate the need for travel to our client locations in the future when it’s deemed safe.

Candidates must possess work authorization that does not require H-1B visa sponsorship by Thoughtworks or dependent EAD.
