Mission: Guidewire exists to deliver the software that property and casualty insurers need to adapt and prosper in a time of rapid industrial change - and to ensure every customer is successful.
I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than 10 years)
Guidewire is a great company and especially ideal for the career-minded individual. The company is large enough to offer a variety of jobs in all kinds of interesting locations. Even if you never change roles, your job changes and evolves as the company grows, keeping things fresh. This is an exciting time to work in the P&C insurance industry as well. Our customers and our employees are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
Things move quickly these days - you either pick up the pace or risk being left behind. This may not be ideal for everyone, but is ideal for those who are up for the challenge.
Advice to Management
Stand by our founding principles - collegiality, rationality, and integrity are so powerful in their execution. They have made Guidewire the company it is today and will carry us forward.
I applied online. I interviewed at Guidewire in May 2015.
I applied on web, but at the end, I needed a Linkedin contact, after that, I could get an interview. The first step, it was a call conference with HR, it was simple, talking about your tasks, your knowledge, your skills, etc... They asked you where you are ability to make a little test about your professional skills, we agreed a day, and that day I receive a email in my inbox with the test code and the instructions. If you pass the test code, the next step is a new call conference but this time with a Technical Department. Finally, if you pass this call conference the last step is a face-2-face meeting..
We're honored to be recognized as a top cloud company to work for.
