Our Values

The Guidewire team is very proud of the reputation we have earned in the industry. We take great pride in the products we build and the manner in which we operate as a company and on an individual level. We live and operate by three basic principles. These are the same principles upon which Guidewire was founded and they remain at the heart of all we do today:

We value integrity in everything that we do: truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other.

We are dedicated to rationality: communicating through clear arguments, building excellent quality products, and making decisions carefully on the basis of factual evidence.

We prize collegiality: working together as professional equals, with a minimum of hierarchy.


Why Guidewire?

Our customers are insurance companies, and insurance software is surprisingly complex, mission-critical to the business, difficult to get right, and actually a lot of fun to work on. We provide a platform based on three elements: core processing, data and analytics, and digital engagement (or “core,” “data,” and “digital” for short), which work together to strengthen insurers’ ability to engage and empower their customers, agents, and employees. We serve more than 200 customers in more than 20 countries, executing more than 300 Guidewire product implementations.  It doesn’t stop there. We are investing heavily in R&D, in fact more than 2,000 person hours have been invested already in building the platform.  There is an opportunity to gain truly international experience, and work with a distributed team across the globe.
