Sr Software Engineer, Platform Guidewire Software
We are looking for skilled, critical thinking, creative, talented Software Engineers to join our platform development team. Our platform includes an MVC Web presentation layer, a cluster-safe persistent data layer, advanced performance tools, an inter-application messaging architecture, and a lot more. The Platform team writes most code in Java, though we use the Gosu language, too. The Platform team built the Gosu language at Guidewire to make us more productive, and it's now freely available at http://gosu-lang.org.
Guidewire sells three enterprise web-based software products to insurance companies that offer Property and Casualty insurance. Our products share a core technology platform that the Guidewire Platform team develops. Our customers around the globe require a highly configurable and reliable software platform for their core systems. Because of the scale and flexibility, insurance software is surprisingly complex, difficult to get right, and provides many interesting and challenging software problems to solve.
Our development process is sustainable (no death marches), work/life balance friendly, and we pride ourselves on a calm, systematic, and rational approach to our business. See and hear from our employees athttp://www.guidewire.com/about_guidewire/careers.
