An overview of Thoughtworks hiring strategy in India

Thoughtworks works with clients with a future minded focus to build better solutions and tech stacks. They hire across tech roles - right from principal developers, QAs, product managers, Business Analysts, to Project Managers. They deliver expertise across retail, infra, finance, healthcare, automotive, media, e-commerce and so on.

Recruitment process at Thoughtworks

As a first step, the team curates relevant profiles. This is followed by the recruiter screening which is then followed by a role specific assessment. The assessment can be hands-on, based on case studies or through interview discussions.

Once a candidate is proven to be technically proficient, they are led through the leadership interviews and a cultural fitment round.

How Thoughtworks used Cutshort to expand their tech team with reduced effort and cost

Following challenges were faced by the team in their recruitment process:

  1. Difficulty in sourcing high quality and relevant talent pool.
  2. Duplicate profiles in most hiring platforms.
  3. Screening the huge number of applications received.
  4. Engaging with candidates.

How Cutshort solved these challenges for Thoughtworks?

The Thoughtworks team has been using Cutshort for more than a year now to close multiple roles. The Cutshort offerings that helped solve their above problems are:

  • Genuine, quality profiles

The team often found it difficult to source profiles on other platforms due to unreliability of candidate information, and duplicate profiles. They find that the candidate pool on Cutshort is of better quality and often unavailable on other platforms. The team doesn't have to worry about fake or duplicate profiles either.

  • Role matcher showing relevant profiles, faster

The match-making on Cutshort helps them find sets of curated candidates matching their requirements for each role. This connects them with relevant candidates faster.

  • Screener

On other platforms, Thoughtworks recruiting noticed that although a lot of candidates apply for their roles on multiple platforms, many were irrelevant applications. Candidates apply without reading the job description properly. It is difficult and far more time consuming to look for the right applications from that huge pool. Here, Cutshort's Screening automation simplifies the initial screening process. They can find the relevant professionals easily based on candidates' answers to their set questions in MCQ, text or audio format.

  • Voila support and other automations

Automations have reduced the team's effort of individually sending messages to their candidates. Voila, the AI assistant, not only sends the set messages for them but also follows up reminding the candidates to respond. They also automatically export the candidates to their relevant jobs in their ATS system without any manual effort.

At ThoughtWorks, we started using Cutshort in 2021 and have found the platform to be extremely helpful to connect with great talent. We have made around 20 offers this year so far. What makes the platform stand out from the crowd is its ability to show relevant candidates who have been carefully curated based on the job requirements. We are truly appreciative of the quality of talent we have been able to connect with via Cutshort. The team is happy that it has helped reduce the TAT and added other cost benefits to the business.

Though there was a learning curve involved in understanding the platform, the candidate quality here has been quite good. We get a lot of candidates here that we don't find in other platforms.

Genuine and relevant profiles - it's a winner for me. There is a higher possibility to close the role if it has been sourced through Cutshort!
