Software Engineer Guidewire Software
Do you view software engineering as a craft? Are you happiest when writing code?
Guidewire is expanding and has openings for software engineers. Our customers are insurance companies, and insurance software is surprisingly complex, difficult to get right, and actually a lot of fun to work on. Demand for our software is strong and increasing, and we are growing to meet the needs of the market.
What's most important to us is the quality of the people we work with and the opportunity to be productive. We strive to constantly improve our development process, apply agile development practices, and collaborate to create and maintain the greatest enterprise software suite in the Property and Casualty Insurance industry. We're a team passionately focused on customer success and our long term goals. Talk to people here and you'll immediately sense their enthusiasm. We write software the way we've always wanted to write it. We want smart, motivated people to help build the future for ourselves and our customers. We are proud of what we build and how we work together.
At the heart of Guidewire culture are three principles:
Collegiality - We work together as professional equals, with a minimum of hierarchy. We strive for good processes and realistic assumptions to keep workload sustainable. We trust people to manage their own time. We seek input without regard for title. We welcome and consider contrary opinions. We value work/life balance.
Integrity - We insist on truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other in everything that we do.
Rationality - We communicate through clear arguments. We decide carefully based on factual evidence. We like calm, systematic, thoughtful solutions. More than 100K unit tests per branch prove our code succeeds and fails where expected. We never assume that we're building software the 'right' way, and constantly seek to improve our processes.

- A desire to work collaboratively in a small, cross-functional team.
- An interest in practicing modern development techniques (TDD, scrum, pair programming, stories, Kanban, etc.).
- A passion for code quality that inspires writing and maintaining loads of unit tests
- A desire to be hands-on in designing and writing code.
- Curiosity and internal motivation to constantly improve their own skills and how we develop software
