Guidewire Software (NYSE: GWRE) is a leading provider of software solutions to the global property-casualty insurance industry. We have pursued one mission from our founding as a company in 2001: to be the pre-eminent provider of next-generation Insurance Platform — policy, claims, billing, digital, and data — to the global property-casualty industry. All of our employees understand that we serve only one industry and strive to solve one problem: to enable insurance carriers to migrate completely from legacy systems to a modern core platform. We are expanding our delivery capabilities in order to assist our customers in transforming their businesses and to ensure that each one is successful in this journey. Our investments range from expanding our professional consulting services to providing new instant-on cloud-based applications.
In order to achieve deliver on our goals and meet rising customer expectations to take on complete leadership and accountability of their strategic transformation programs, we are looking for experienced technology delivery program managers to join our teams.
Guidewire Program Managers are assigned to manage the overall customer program and its related projects on behalf of the customer and Guidewire. This is a full-time role that works closely with the project managers whose projects fall under the program umbrella, customer sponsors, key leadership, and the Steering Committee. They are critical for understanding the full breadth of the program and with tying their end to end components together. The Guidewire Program Manager is responsible for the overall success of the program.
The program manager provides management oversight and leadership by helping to ensure that the program’s benefits are realized and is responsible for the successful delivery of the technical and business change. The role requires effective coordination of multiple project streams within the program and management of their interdependencies including oversight of any risks and issues arising. The program manager is responsible for the overall integrity and coherence of the program. As program lead, they develop and maintain the program environment to support each individual project within it.
The role is crucial for creating and maintaining focus, enthusiasm, and momentum. They should have a solid understanding of how to apply a standard methodology for running programs (e.g. PMP, MSP, and PRINCE2).
The ideal candidate will be well versed in agile implementation methodologies and enterprise scale implementations and be able to deliver projects that combined those qualities.
Customer Success through collaboration on-site. To accomplish that we employ a flexible travel schedule of traveling to the customer on Mondays to return on Thursday which has been called the 3-4-5 in the industry: 3 nights away, 4 days on site, with the fifth day working from home. We have a Global Mobility team to ensure you have the right support.
