Hi Fellow Ranchers,
Could you tell me how is the company Thoughtworks bangalore?
I heard that they are full of Agile Processes.

How is the pay package there?
How is the work culture over there?
Can it be counted as a Paymaster?

regards,
Abhishek

Post your resume on their website and they will get back to you. There will be telephonic interview first and then face-face interview. This is in US, I guess it should be same in india as well. You can find info on their website though.
Its a very good company to work for.

They must be good pay master as in USA they are offering job with 100% travelling. Which normally many candidate doesn't like but India this may not be scenario.

If you heard of Martin Flower, he is working for the same company.

Actually I got a chance to work with them while on an UK assignment last August 05. Our Clients had all thoughtworks contractors. There I was introduced to agile processes and the system of the clients had a very big architecture. But my project managers were very skeptic about Agile processes. They alway tell even now that Agile is Fragile. But in my own experience that I got from working with them I saw the whole bunch was a full dedicated team.

Once again I believe some day (may be next job) will be in thoughtworks.

Hurrah for ThoughtWorks.

regards,
Abhishek

Infact we are all unique and great. Just we require a bit of self realization. Then everything is achievable.

Its a very good company to work for.


In India the process invovles: they will give you a case where you need to develop code(either in C, C++ or Java) and send them for evaluation. If your code is shortlisted they will call you for interview.

100% travelling would mean 1 week in Italy, next 2 weeks in China and then 3 weeks in Japan etc. Very few will be interested.

Martin *Fowler* is the Chief Scientist for ThoughtWorks and an excellent author. Referring to him as Martin Flower won't win you any points...
