  • Department: Product Development
  • Location: Dublin, Ireland
  • Country: Ireland

Guidewire's development team is seeking a proactive and results-oriented Senior Engineer to build sophisticated 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, Analytics, accessibility, and themability, but also visual tools and testing framework, which altogether is a Guidewire Front-End platform

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. Private AWS environments are being used for making the efforts transparent to others, using Storybook as a library tool.

We're using state-of-the-art front-end technologies by continuously adopting the latest technologies and features. 

The 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 tackle
  • 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
  • Provide technical design and leadership of features from inception to release
  • Mentor and support less experienced engineers

What you would need to succeed

  • Strong experience with modern web technologies: JavaScript (ES Next), HTML5, CSS / Sass and market-leading frameworks (React is a preference)
  • 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 and E2E tests and testable components.
  • Experience building automation scripts and tools to support the CI &CD pipeline.
  • Knowledge of the best coding practices and documentation

Bonus points:

  • Academic background in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Experience with AWS and Cloud technologies
  • Contribution to open-source development projects
  • A self-starter and able to perform with minimal direction

We celebrate what makes us different while sharing the belief in our core values of integrity, rationality, and collegiality. We strive to build an environment where every voice counts and everyone can make an impact, both on our company and the industry we serve.
