We build the products that form the basis of Guidewire's business. Our philosophy is to build products that will support the long-term success of our customers, requiring care, craftsmanship and attention to detail. We take our time and produce software that's highly configurable and scalable. Our software rises to the challenges presented by an enterprise operational environment. In short, we do serious engineering for customers who demand nothing less.
Speak to any of our Developers, QA Engineers or Product Managers and you'll soon pick up on their enthusiasm for our unique culture. When we started Guidewire, we set out to create a place to write software the way we wanted to write it – by respecting the power of smart, motivated people to find the best possible way to do their jobs. That hasn't changed.
In our meritocratic culture, influence comes from the quality of ideas, not the loftiness of job titles. If there's a better way to do something, we want to hear about it. That's why our development teams get together regularly to figure out how to improve what they're doing. Everyone has a voice. In fact, that's one of the really great things about Guidewire: people are treated as individuals, not nameless resources.
We're constantly building on and improving our product offerings and we've started making inroads into newer territories with cloud-based solutions such as those built on the Guidewire Live platform. Initiatives in predictive analytics, real-time feedback, and consumer and producer portals are also in the works. As we move into new areas and platforms we look for additional talented people. This combined with the fact that we operate in an increasing number of markets around the globe means that we can now offer more opportunities than ever before.
Great engineers care about writing quality code. Great engineers pay attention to effective testing. Great engineers make Guidewire products the best they can be. Our strength comes from holding ourselves to a high level of integrity, being able to call out problems and find solutions by working together. Guidewire engineers have an infectious passion for innovation and improvement, for finding creative solutions to complex problems.
In Product Development, we tend not to take short cuts, opting instead to build products well the first time around. If we miss the mark, we try again. Our development approach is rational, based on data and fact rather than wishful thinking. We want people who continually seek to improve, who never satisfice, who are never satisfied and are relentless in their pursuit of a finding a better way. We want people who work well with others and help their teammates.
You will make life-long friends and work with colleagues who will push you and help you to be a better engineer. We offer a healthy work/life balance. We are family-oriented, open and honest, and we've been named the number one 'Best Tech Company To Work For' in 2011, 2012, and runner up in 2013. We really think that you'll enjoy coming to work with us at Guidewire.
