We are looking for a passionate and experienced Senior Software Developer to design and develop high-quality, modern software solutions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
