Who are we?

Guidewire is the best software company that you’ve never heard of. Guidewire is a 1,300 person, publicly traded (NYSE:GWRE) software company specializing in Property & Casualty (P/C) Insurance. Guidewire is the second most successful company to go public in 2012 (the number one company had a movie made about it). Our mission statement sounds like this:

Guidewire exists to deliver the software that P/C insurers need to adapt and succeed in a time of rapid industry change, and to ensure that every customer succeeds in the journey.

Guidewire is the leader in the P/C Insurance software space (validated by two years of being #1 on Gartner’s prestigious Magic Quadrant). We are poised to continue this success, which means that you will have a place to grow your career and be rewarded for your talents.

Business Insider repeatedly ranks Guidewire as a top tech employer in Silicon Valley; and we are honoured to be voted by employees as a “Best Place to Work” on Glassdoor.

Why Guidewire?

All of us who work in Development at Guidewire feel like there’s something different here. To a person, we wish we had discovered Guidewire sooner. Much of that difference is due to the company’s core values, which the company has lived by since our founding:

• Integrity – truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other

• Rationality – communicating through clear arguments, building excellent quality products, and making decisions carefully on the basis of factual evidence

• Collegiality – working together as professional equals, with a minimum of hierarchy

Our track record is the number-one reason our customers choose Guidewire.
We serve more than 200 insurers in more than 20 countries around the world. We’ve never had a failed implementation. We invest in R&D more than any other vendor in our market: 2,000+ person-years invested so far to build a platform that evolves to meet our customers' current and future needs.

Job Requirements

We care most about your critical thinking skills and technical talent. Assuming that you are something of a polyglot programmer, we’re confident that you can become productive in any technical environment.

Our current stack includes Java, JavaScript, HTML and CSS, while within the company, we are moving to cloud-based technologies and modern frameworks, such as AngularJS . Since our data resides in relational databases, experience with large-scale RDBMS-based systems is an asset.

Strong written and verbal communication skills are a prerequisite, as we are a very team-oriented company and clear communication is central to our success. We are experienced Agile / Scrum practitioners and everyone in our office is trained as a Certified Scrum Master.

If you are an independent, self-starting and quality-minded software developer with top-notch communication and analysis skills, we would like to talk to you.
