Solution Consultant Java Developer - Dublin Guidewire Software
We are looking for Graduate Java Developers to join our development and services centre in Dublin, Ireland.
We are Guidewire Software, and we're perhaps the best company to work for that you've never heard of. We are market leaders in insurance software, serving the second-largest financial services industry in the world (after banking). We build the core applications that companies use to sell policies, settle claims, and bill their customers. We serve customers all over the world, helping them handle billions of dollars of business. This is a lucrative and underserved market, and we have grown rapidly through a combination of quality products, excellent service, innovative technology, and word-of-mouth reputation.
The applications we build are large and extraordinarily complex, and they have to work reliably. So we're looking for thoughtful, creative, and highly-skilled developers who enjoy thinking through deep and difficult technical problems, building software test-first, and collaborating closely with an impressive team of peers. We particularly value clear, logical thinking, good communication skills, a focus on quality, and the ability to work well in a team. For the most part, we work in Java, but we're interested in talking with smart, motivated people who can learn, no matter what your current technology skill set happens to be.
Although insurance software may sound boring, it's not. Sure, it's serious work, but we use cutting edge processes and technologies to deliver products that our customers love. We're pioneers in Agile development; few companies anywhere, in any industry, have pushed agile techniques as far as we have. To give you one example, we maintain a farm of nearly 200 servers to continuously run our suite of more than 40,000 unit tests. Our development process is sustainable, family-friendly, and fundamentally humane, and we pride ourselves on a calm, systematic, and rational approach to our business.
If this sounds interesting and different to you...come and talk with us. We'll work through some programming problems together so we can see what it's like to work with you, and you can see first-hand how we all work together. We can promise that you'll be treated with respect and that you'll leave, one way or another, having learned something from the experience.
