Guidewire (NYSE-listed) is a specialist enterprise software product company. Specialization = focus. We pursue a straightforward ambition: to be the pre-eminent provider of core systems to the global general insurance industry, estimated to be worth €2 trillion in annual premiums.

There are two components to the business.

Guidewire aims to be the best in the world at both. We hire developers, engineers, consultants and solution architects who are the best at what they do.

The Professional Services Organisation: We deploy small, highly-skilled team of functional and technical consultants/experts. We send a small team of Subject Matter Experts who work in tandem with the insurance company’s internal team, and partners, to address their needs, and become a trusted technical advisor and mentor. Our software is incredibly complex and well-tested – over 1,000 years’ of man hours has been invested in our products so far.

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 onsite, with the fifth day working from home.
