Bangkok--24 Apr--ThoughWorks
ThoughtWorks, a global software development and digital transformation consultancy, today announced Thao Dang has been named Head of Technology for Southeast Asia.

Ms Dang, with 11 years of tech consulting experience, will lead the Singapore office in building the technology strategy and direction, capability engine, and engaging with the technology community and clients. She has spent the past five years as a developer and team lead at ThoughtWorks, and is passionate about supporting clients in bringing technology to the core of their business, data-driven digital transformation, and software design and delivery.

Ms. Dang said, "I am excited to take on this role, and leverage my passion and skills to drive technology innovation and skills development within ThoughtWorks Singapore. As part of a company of purpose-led technologists, I will be exploring avenues for ThoughtWorks to contribute to the local tech ecosystem and pioneer more partnerships across the public and private sectors. I also hope to continue encouraging young female technologists to aspire to leadership positions in tech and grow their careers in this exciting industry."

The new appointment comes at a time of significant growth and opportunity for ThoughtWorks, having celebrated six years in Singapore. The company continues to partner with clients in Singapore across diverse sectors such as finance, government and transport, helping them to drive digital transformation.

ThoughtWorks has also been named a Gold winner in the 'Best Diversity & Inclusion Strategy' category at the Asia Recruitment Awards, the benchmark within the recruitment industry. With the intense competition for tech talent in Singapore, there has been greater industry focus on HR excellence and talent acquisition. Being respected as a forerunner for talent acquisition within Asia is an affirmation of ThoughtWorks' focus on culture that remains committed to hiring, training and growing a diverse team of talented individuals.

Jessie Xia, Managing Director, ThoughtWorks Southeast Asia, said, "We're proud to announce Thao's appointment as Head of Technology at the same time that we receive this prestigious award. We are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion throughout our organisation every day, and to supporting many more talented individuals as they grow their careers while delivering outstanding client work. We do this both through recruitment practices and through programs that support the personal and professional development of our team, ensuring they have the right opportunities and mentorship to grow their careers long term."

In Singapore, ThoughtWorks is currently running the JumpStart! programme, targeted primarily at individuals from non-ICT backgrounds with the aim to build a more diverse tech talent pipeline.
