Mission: Guidewire exists to deliver the software that property and casualty insurers need to adapt and prosper in a time of rapid industrial change - and to ensure every customer is successful.
I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than 10 years)
Guidewire is a great company and especially ideal for the career-minded individual. The company is large enough to offer a variety of jobs in all kinds of interesting locations. Even if you never change roles, your job changes and evolves as the company grows, keeping things fresh. This is an exciting time to work in the P&C insurance industry as well. Our customers and our employees are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
Things move quickly these days - you either pick up the pace or risk being left behind. This may not be ideal for everyone, but is ideal for those who are up for the challenge.
Advice to Management
Stand by our founding principles - collegiality, rationality, and integrity are so powerful in their execution. They have made Guidewire the company it is today and will carry us forward.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Guidewire in March 2018.
4-6 week process. Recruiter call to understand your motivations and fit, 2-3 rounds of discussion with other UX Researchers and UX Designers, 2 rounds of discussion with hiring managers, 1 final round with whole team - do a presentation and a light weight research activity. they are interested to see how you fit in, how you present your methods, your reasoning and adaptability.
