THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED
Are you an expert in Ajax development? Do you enjoy building UI frameworks with cutting edge Web 2.0 technologies? Would you appreciate a ground floor opportunity where you get to define the roadmap for our client-side performance test strategy? If so, we would like to talk to you.
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. The software we build must be able to work reliably with significant data volumes and under heavy load. Our applications are highly configurable, and we need to test out-of-the-box configurations as well as common or risky customizations. We are looking for thoughtful, creative and highly-skilled engineers who can help us identify and fix potential performance bottlenecks in our client UI layer. We're particularly interested in engineers who would enjoy developing tools to improve and expedite our performance tuning work.
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 at http://www.guidewire.com/about_guidewire/careers.
If you are happiest when coding, we would love to hear from you.

- A desire to work collaboratively in a small, cross-functional team
- Interest in modern development techniques, such as TDD, Scrum, pair programming, Kanban
- Passion for code quality that inspires writing and maintaining unit tests
- Curiosity and motivation to pick up new technologies and programming techniques
- Hands-on designing features and writing code
We care most about your critical thinking skills and technical talent. Prior experience with one or more of the following is desired.
- Experience with Ajax libraries such as Ext JS (Sencha), Dojo, GWT, or JQuery
- Overall understanding of web architecture and UI frameworks
- Knowledge of Java and other languages such as Gosu
- Experience with Web performance tools such as dynaTrace, Speed Tracer, Benchmark.js or jsPerf
