Guidewire Ireland

Established in 2011, Guidewire’s Irish centre helps meet a growing global customer demand for expertise in implementing Guidewire’s products. The Dublin-based European Development Centre, Guidewire’s third global development team, was established to extend our core applications to accelerate the delivery of critical new product functionality to our customers. The team builds both global capabilities and content for specific countries and locales. We use the same rigorous, quality-focused methodology that Guidewire’s customers have come to expect from the rest of the core system suite. Our Digital team was established in 2013 to build new products from the ground up that seamlessly expand our core systems solution footprint.

Why Guidewire?


  • Every individual has the opportunity to make an impact on the business and processes.
  • In the words of Marcus Ryu, one of our original founders:

“In starting Guidewire, our primary motivation was to build a better company. We wanted Guidewire to be different from other places we had worked: more honest, more dedicated to customers, more committed to quality. We would always tell the truth, hire the most capable people we could find, and foster a collaborative, high-performing work environment. And we would meet a fundamental market need.”

  • The mission then translates into core values that we live by daily: We value integrityin everything we do; an atmosphere of collegiality – we help each other to ensure customer success and operate as a meritocracy; and rationality – making decisions based on factual evidence.
  • Work with an enterprise enterprise-class software product company with skilled teams solving complex problems in an Agile environment. Insurance core systems must be capable of supporting thousands of concurrent users, millions of transactions, and integration to complex enterprise IT environments.  Moreover, they must have the complete reliability and performance required of financial systems-of-record. 
  • We work with the latest web technologies, ensuring that our solution continues to evolve and provides the best outcome for our customers.
  • At Guidewire we invest in and grow our own talent from within. We send our developers for intense training and certification in their first month.
