Software Engineer - Front End, Platform

Guidewire's development team is seeking a proactive and results-oriented Software Engineer to build elegant solutions for the property & casualty insurance industry's complex business domain and make our industry-leading products even better. 

Our solution not only includes carefully polished React components, with full support for capabilities like internationalization, granular Web Analytics, accessibility, and themability, but also visual tools (WYSIWYG UI editor) for building and testing modern web apps using these. One of the most exciting challenges is making it possible to build the apps on top of the platform's components in a codeless manner.
We also do ship our efforts to other teams using private npm registries and work closely with them to make the adoption smooth. AWS environments are being used for making the efforts visible to others, using Storybook as a library tool. We're staying on top of the bleeding edge front-end technologies by continuously adopting the latest technologies and features.

Your day-to-day:

  • Design, develop and run Front-End platform, components & tools
  • Work with your Scrum team to understand the requirements and the problems you need to solve
  • Find the right tools, get involved in the design sessions and build a reliable solution
  • Focus on code quality and do code reviews and provide feedback
  • Be able to prioritize and organize your day according to different project needs
  • You will have a variety of responsibilities and a chance to influence the way the team works
  • Interact with the UX team to achieve a great user and developer experience

What we are looking for:

  • Strong experience with modern web technologies: JavaScript (ES6+), HTML5, CSS / Sass and market-leading frameworks (React is a preference)
  • 3+ years of production front-end development experience is required
  • Experience working in an Agile work environment and knowledge of Agile methodologies.
  • Experience in developing responsive applications with good architecture and UI.
  • Experience in contributing to architecture, design, and implementation of products
  • Skilled at writing unit tests and testable components.
  • Experience building automation scripts and tools to support the CI &CD pipeline.
  • Knowledge of best coding practices and documentation

Bonus points:

  • Academic background in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Experience with AWS and Cloud technologies
  • An aptitude for continuous learning, taking initiative, and exploration of new technologies.
