Software Engineer - Dublin, Ireland

Guidewire delivers the industry platform that Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers rely upon. We provide the software, services, and partner ecosystem to enable our customers to run, differentiate, and grow their business.

We are looking for a proactive and result-oriented Software Engineer to join our product development team and work on building high-quality software and improving the customer experience for millions of people who use our products every day. You will have the opportunity to make an impact and contribute to a complex application suite of products as we are serving more than 350 companies in 32 countries.

Our software supports significant data volumes and heavy server load. Our platform includes a cluster-safe persistence layer, inter-application messaging architecture, an MVC Web layer, and a lot more.

You'll work alongside intelligent colleagues who've checked their egos at the door. Teamwork is very important to us so we are looking for engineers who are open to share their knowledge, listen to their peers, paying also attention to details and quality and work together to solve complex problems.

You will attend training from day one, learning about our solutions and the business side, as every day can be different, from development to deployment, quarterly planning, and daily standups.

As an engineer with Guidewire, you should have:

  • A desire to work collaboratively in an empowered, small, cross-functional team
  • Experience working in an agile development environment (e.g. TDD, Agile, pair programming, etc.)
  • A passion for code quality demonstrated by thorough testing
  • A desire to be hands-on in designing and writing code
  • Curiosity and internal motivation to constantly improve
  • Excellent communication skills, comfort level to speak their mind and defend ideas based on merit, yet humility and hunger to learn from others

Skills we look for:

  • Core Java
  • Familiarity with Continuous Delivery, Continuous Integration, Unit Testing, etc
  • Object-Oriented Design
  • Agile development practices
  • Web services (e.g. REST, etc)
  • Cloud Services (e.g. AWS)

A typical candidate has a Computer Science background or equivalent. The ideal candidate will share our core values: Collegiality, Integrity, and 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 welcome and consider contrary opinions.

Integrity - We insist on truthful 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 assume that we're building software the "best" way, and constantly seek to improve our processes.
