EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Our business is growing rapidly, with revenues now approaching $ 80m. We tackle complex, mission-critical applications like many software companies. But thatÆs where the similarity ends. We relish the kind of software challenges other so-called specialists dread. Ridiculously tight deadlines, disparate technologies, ill-defined requirements - all the things that keep other consultancies awake at night are the reason we leap out of bed in the morning. And no, itÆs not that weÆre simply a bunch of technical masochists. We just approach things differently.
So as you can imagine, from a company that prides itself on challenging the conventional, our graduate scheme is different too. You have 2 choices when you want to join us; straight away (July/Aug 05) or you may choose to defer entry till Feb 06. WeÆre looking for potential developers, business analysts and testers looking to build a career in technology consultancy. WeÆre going to fly our successful applicants to our office in Bangalore for up to 4 months for a Boot Camp in Agile, object oriented analysis & design and programming. WeÆll work with you to prepare you for the delivery role in our organisation that is right for you, get you started on building your global network while also giving you the chance to see some of our distributed projects first hand. Then itÆs onto a project to put what youÆve learned into action.
We understand that our approach will come across as a bit unusual, but then, weÆre looking for people who do things differently. WeÆre looking for exceptional graduates who can prove they have the drive, passion and hard-work ethic thatÆs required for a career in technology consultancy. You can prove this in a number of ways; maybe you took on positions of responsibility at university, maybe youÆve had some relevant work experience, maybe some really cool charity work, maybe youÆve trekked around the Andes on a goat making you the perfect employee. WeÆre open-minded and prepared to be impressed. WeÆre happy to look at people who graduated in 2004 provided you have less than 12 months commercial post-graduate experience in technology. Interested? Please send your CV along with a cover letter to ukjobs@thoughtworks.com. Applications without a cover letter, no matter how great, will be rejected.
Requirements: You need a 2.1 in a scientific/numerate/IT related degree subject or a 2.1 in any subject followed by an MSc in an IT related discipline. And 26 points at A-level.
