Software Engineer – Krakow, Poland

Do you understand the power of persistence? Are you ready to get better every day? We're looking for a Software Engineer to join our development team in Krakow. You’ll play a key role in building products that improve the experience of millions of Guidewire customers worldwide. Working in a team of experts who have a shared commitment to push further and achieve more.

Driven by integrity and motivated by the collective challenge.  

At Guidewire, we're changing the face of insurance. Developing and delivering technology that's shaping the future of the property and casualty industry. We're a global team of more than 2,400 working at scale and speed across a 500-million-dollar platform that gives insurers the tools they need to take care of their customers. Individually mastering our craft, to collectively empower millions.

Key Projects:

Guidewire Cloud Console

We’re the team responsible for building the Guidewire Cloud Console. This means providing a toolset for our customers to create and deploy Guidewire InsurancePlatform solutions to Guidewire Cloud –much like deploying applications on AWS. In fact, under the hood, the console is built on AWS with the support of Kubernetes and Terraform. We write components for the Cloud Console as autonomous services using primarily Java stack (Java 11 and Spring Boot backed by AWS-native services). Teams own all aspects of the software development lifecycle for their services: architecture, code, quality assurance, and deployment/upgrade strategies.


Our team builds microservices on a Java stack running on Kubernetes in AWS. The services will manage and store mission-critical configuration and reference data for our customers, providing consumer-quality interfaces so that customers can rapidly configure Guidewire applications. The team works on all aspects of providing a complete, reliable, and high-quality service, which includes creating tests, configuring infrastructure (e.g., CICD), creating UIs, documenting APIs, and building client integrations.

Push for perfection

We want a Software Engineer who doesn’t believe in good enough. You’ll join a cross-functional team who creatively find solutions to make our complex suite of products even better.

  • For this role, you'll need an obsessive focus on code quality and the tenacity to constantly improve our Agile process.
  • You’ll need to experience of building exceptional n-tier web applications using technologies such as Java EE, Servlets, Spring and Hibernate.
  • And you’ll need to have worked with enterprise software systems development, including relational database systems (JDBC, ORM, data modeling and design), software architecture, system integration (messaging, web services, SOA), and web UI.
  • Knowledge of Cloud Services is a bonus, the skills to write unit tests and testable components are a must.

Most of our team have a Computer Science degree or equivalent, but you’ll need more than qualifications to thrive here. You’ll face new complex challenges every day and will need a real appetite to learn – from ongoing training and the team around you. Collaboration is important at Guidewire, so you’ll need to be ready to share knowledge and open to feedback.

Let’s make an impact.

At a time of rapid industry change, we're evolving to make sure we deliver the best systems and services for every customer. It's an exciting time to join us as we push ourselves, our business and the sector forward. There's lots to learn and you'll be given opportunities to grow with us and have a genuine impact, inspired by those around you.

Become the best you can be. Join us, apply now.
