We come to work as ourselves. We encourage and support each other. We value honesty and transparency. Ideas and doing the right thing are more important than appearances and backgrounds. We abhor and reject discrimination and inequality and promote diversity in all its forms. We proudly, passionately and actively strive to make both ThoughtWorks and our industry more reflective and inclusive of the society that we serve.

As technologists, we understand that our impact on society is ever-growing. Our mission is to better humanity through software and help build a more socially and economically just world. We are committed to building excellent software that helps shape this future. But tech excellence goes beyond writing great code or building effective architecture - it means deeply embodying the values of privacy, empathy, equity, and inclusion in the technology we create.
