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. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Guidewire (Sydney) in April 2016.
Initial phone interview with HR.
Technical phone interview with local resource.
Code test, 3-4 hour test of general coding skills.
3, 1 hour Face-To-Face interviews.
The process was very rigorous and I felt very thorough. Although there was a lot of time invested personally in the process I felt that it was worth it. The process gave me confidence that they were quite selective in their hiring process and that the entire team would be stronger because of it.
We're honored to be recognized as a top cloud company to work for.
