Want to Work for a Different Type of Software Company? Join the Guidewire team!

At Guidewire, we pride ourselves on our inclusive and collaborative company culture. As part of our intern program, our experienced engineers will train and mentor you as you engage in meaningful work on our industry leading software products.

We live by our core values every day - COLLEGIALITY, INTEGRITY, RATIONALITY.

Collegiality - We value strong teams. We work together as professional equals. We strive to continuously improve our processes and make realistic assumptions to maintain a reasonable work-life balance. We are trusted to manage our own time. We value ideas, not titles. We happily welcome and consider contrary opinions.

Integrity - We insist on candid relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other in everything that we do.

Rationality - We communicate through clear arguments. We decide carefully based on factual evidence. We like calm, systematic, thoughtful solutions. We believe in testing. We never take the assumption that we are building software the "best" way, and continuously seek to improve our processes.
