Share this job with a friend

Life at ThoughtWorks changed due to COVID-19, but we still wanted to continue with the awesome elements of the LevelUp experience. We received a really good response from attendees and our volunteers from our first season and returning with even more awesome speakers and contents.

For season 2, we’ll follow a ‘typical’ agile software development project lifecycle from early discovery phases, to delivery of a software product, from the perspective of multiple roles.  You’ll understand the role of a Developer, Business Analyst, Experience Designer, Quality Analyst, and Information Security, what each role does and how they work together.

You’ll hear war stories, insights and career tips and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Register for the episodes now!
