Solution Engineer (US Remote Option)

  • Department Go To Market
  • Location Columbia, SC
Do you enjoy rapid prototyping and creating proofs of concept to share with prospective clients? Does the challenge of working on and supporting diverse and unique sales opportunities interest you? If so, we would love to see your background! The Solution Engineering team at Guidewire is just as much of a software development team as it is an extension of Solution Consulting. You would be a part of a team that delivers complex software requirements to meet emerging and evolving market demands.

Our team is responsible for delivering creative, solution-focused demonstration implementations to the Sales organization for presentation to prospective customers. We are currently growing our team to dedicate more time and effort to support our sales efforts.
This position involves working directly with members of the Solution Consulting and development teams to configure our sophisticated solution demonstrations.

We place high value on being able to contribute in a fast-paced environment in a multitude of development and operational related tasks.

The successful candidate will have 3+ years of software development experience or configuring packaged application software, with an ability to grow into a product lead position. You must be a self-starter and able to perform with minimal direction while working in a diverse team environment following Agile processes for software development. You must have strong technical skills, such as the ability to code in a front-end or back-end programming language or full-stack; debug complex issues; or troubleshoot environment configuration issues.
Although this is not a customer-facing role, it may include direct participation in sales opportunities and proofs of concept: designing, developing, and configuring creative and innovative solutions to prospects’ requirements. 

Responsibilities:

  • Implement new features requirements gathering through implementation, testing, and delivery from beginning to end
  • Operate environment requests, troubleshooting the operational and functional issues during demo preparation
  • Own, troubleshoot, and resolve defects
