ThoughtWorks recently opened a new office in Whitefield, Bengaluru, to leverage the city’s diverse talent pool, and to accommodate the year on year growth of more than 20% for the next five years.
The new ThoughtWorks office in the subcontinent, will spearhead the company’s future-focused technology and digital products. The space will adopt a shared service model which aims to create a common pool of people who collaborate across capabilities, around data and product development. The new office with a 300-people seating capacity will also leverage tech-community events, for wider networking that caters to data and digital interests.
ThoughtWorks India’s new office has already mapped its growth to developing digital innovations specifically for its Global In-house Center (GIC) customers. Some of these commitments span APAC, UK and global players, across the hyperlocal transport, energy management and retail sectors.
Additionally, the space will follow through on a mandate to advance technology and economic growth on a global scale. This will happen through programmes designed to help start-ups, enterprises and governments navigate global megatrends from theory to strategic implementation, using a Tech@Core approach. ThoughtWorks has identified five ‘Seismic Shifts’ that are key technology bets on what will transform organizations across the world. These five shifts are listed as; evolving interactions, humanity augmented, rise of the platforms, security-privacy-transparency and rise of the robots.
“This expansion is only a step in our comprehensive business expansion strategy for the country, aimed at the year on year growth of more than 20% for the next 5 years. The new space will exponentially boost our local supply market with specific focus on digital, product and data capabilities. The new office will also nurture digitally-led innovation to capitalize on technology driven opportunities for our current and future customers,” said Sameer Soman and Sudhir Tiwari, Directors, ThoughtWorks India.
