Thoughtworks Interview Experience (Off-Campus) 2022
Hi there, hope you are doing great. I joined Thoughtworks as an Application Developer consultant in June 2022. When I was preparing for my interviews I have always found Interview experiences quite useful, so I thought maybe I could share my experience as well. I have applied for the role of Application developer via the HackerEarth platform.
So talking about the recruitment process, Thoughtworks hiring for graduate consultants usually has about 4 rounds.
Round 1: Online Assessments: It was conducted on the HackerEarth platform. It has 2 coding questions and 10 MCQs. I have solved 5 test cases in each program. Topics covered for MCQ are Linux, networking, and guessing the outputs of code snippets. A few days later I got a mail from Thoughtworks for another online test that was conducted on the HackerRank platform which consists of 2 medium-level coding questions. I have solved both of them completely.
Round 2: Code pairing: In this round, I was given a problem statement that has to be solved using OOPs concepts. This round went around 1hr 45mins. Two Thoughtworkers came and they were very friendly. Once I had the working solution and all test cases were passing, they told me to code with a few ideas suggested by them. Once I have coded that they seemed satisfied and ended the round. It might be a little scary to think of coding for 1hr 45mins but trust me it doesn’t feel that long and Thoughtworkers will always navigate you throughout. The reason behind this round is that Thoughtworks as an organization strongly believes in the concept of code-pairing (https://www.thoughtworks.com/insights/blog/what-expect-pair-programming-interview)
Round 3: Technical Interview: After round 2 was completed I got a mail after a few hours confirming that I was selected for the next round. In this round again two Thoughtworkers came and lasted for a little over 1hr. They started with the Intro and later landed on the Internship experiences and what technology stack that I have worked on. Later they started with the SQL-queries, database system, and oops concepts. They gave me a library management system as a topic and asked how would I design it and told me to relate it to real-world scenarios. They were keener on conceptual understanding than the syntaxes and language of choice. Once it was done they gave me a coding question related to maps and asked me to explain the algorithm. They were friendly all the time.
Round 4: Social Change and Leadership: This round basically about what’s your take on all the social events and how you being a social being would respond. It did not feel like an interview at all, it was more of talking to someone about society as a whole and there are no correct or wrong answers. In this round as well there were two Thoughtworkers for conducting the interview. It lasted up to 1hr.
Finally, after 2-3 days I got the call from the recruiter that I got in. It’s the best Interview experience I had so far.
All the Best !!
