Wondering what to expect from a virtual interview process? ThoughtWorks recruiters share their advice on how to prepare for before, during and after your interview process.


It's clear that 2021 will [hopefully] bring about a gradual return to normalcy. However the future of work remains uncertain. When will offices fully reopen? Will more organizations adopt remote working or hybrid models? In the meantime, on a micro level, how can candidates prepare for a 100% virtual interview process?

All careers have their struggles and wins, but what's it like to experience setbacks, imposter syndrome and milestones as a leader? We sat down with some of our most senior leaders at ThoughtWorks to hear more about their journeys.

ThoughtWorks - Why Work With Us?

Our culture is very intentional. We hire for it, nurture it, check on it, and if something isn’t working, we fix it. Here’s what you’ll find in every ThoughtWorks office around the world:

  • We are intolerant of intolerance. Every day we ensure ThoughtWorks is a welcoming place for people across a spectrum of ability, age, appearance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity. It’s not lip service. We’re radically transparent about our hiring and training initiatives. For example, the Anita Borg Institute has named ThoughtWorks to their list of Top Companies for Women Technologists (in the United States), three years in a row (2016-2018), and many of our ThoughtWorkers speak and write openly about inclusivity.  
  • Building software is a social activity done by teams of brilliant and motivated people, not a mechanistic process. You’ll work on holistic, cross-functional teams focused on delivering business value early and greater business impact overall.  
  • We genuinely hire nice, honest, smart people. During the interview, you’ll find we focus more on aptitude, attitude, integrity, rather than whether or not you have the perfect CV.

Come by an office, meet us, and see it for yourself.
