At Guidewire, we understand the benefit of having people invested in the long term success of the company and we are committed to creating an environment where every person is given the opportunity to succeed through their contributions. Of course we have structure, and an outstanding leadership team, but also every Guidewire person has a voice on the best way to do things. Nobody recognizes this more than our CEO, Marcus Ryu. The embodiment of our culture, he leads us with an unwavering commitment to our values. He is open to new ideas, actively encourages feedback and has a continuous drive to simply 'be better'. This drive is contagious, empowering each and every one in Guidewire to make a difference ‐ in our products, for our customers and as a business. And with new ideas come new opportunities, new challenges to work on and new ways to grow.

Our values

We have lived by three principles since our founding


Truthful relationships with customers, prospective customers, partners, investors, and each other.


Communicating through clear arguments, building excellent quality products, and making decisions carefully on the basis of factual evidence.


Working together as professional equals, with a minimum of hierarchy.

We stand by these values and they inform everything we do, everything we say.
