  • Solid knowledge of object-oriented design principles and algorithms
  • Programming skills in Java and / or JavaScript
  • Understanding of web-based applications and technologies

 Our Values

At Guidewire, we value people at every stage of their career and try to minimize those barriers for collaboration. It is reflected in how we communicate with each other company-wide and on projects.  Every engineer and consultant brings something to the table whether in the earlier years of their career or after a long and successful progression.   We strive for integrity in all that we do:  truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other.  As we grow, our commitment to integrity has only increased.

Why Guidewire?

Established in 2015, Guidewire’s Krakow development centre was established to build core applications used by our enterprise customers. Our customers are insurance companies, and insurance software is surprisingly complex, difficult to get right, and a lot of fun to work on. Demand for our software is on the rise, and we are growing to meet the needs of the market.

We serve more than 200 customers in more than 20 countries, executing more than 300 Guidewire product implementations. We invest heavily in R&D to build a technology platform that combines three elements—core processing, data and analytics, and digital engagement—to enhance insurers’ ability to engage and empower their customers and employees. There is an opportunity to gain truly international experience, and work with a distributed team across the globe. 

How do I apply?
We are taking applications from interested students, and will begin the formal hiring process in April 2020. This is a paid internship and you will be expected to do real work, learn great skills, present your own project work, and bring all that you’ve learned with you on your career path.
