There's no typical day or engagement for Delivery Infrastructure SME’s in this area of focus. Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Help executives define measures and quantify the value of a digital platform and strategy.
  • Train new technology leaders and developers on platform thinking.
  • Communicate team and organizational design approaches to decouple development efforts.
  • Collaborate with peers across multiple technology disciplines such as delivery infrastructure, data, and security.
  • Lead workshops and group activities with delivery teams and executives.

Regardless of what you do at ThoughtWorks, you’ll always have the opportunity to:

  • Think through hard problems, and work with a team to make them reality.
  • Learn something new everyday.
  • Work in a dynamic, collaborative, transparent, non-hierarchal, and ego-free culture where your talent is valued over a role title.
  • Develop your career outside of the confinements of a traditional career path by focusing on what you’re passionate about rather than a predetermined one-size-fits-all plan.
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.
