Graduate Java Developers

At Guidewire we aim to grow our own talent from within and we actively encourage promotion form within and internal mobility. Due to our increasing client list we have recently expanded our Dublin office and have announced further 60-80 openings across our Product Development & Professional Services. In 2016 we plan to seek out top Computer Science/Software Engineering graduates who are budding Java developers and train them to become Consultants in our Global Professional Services Centre, or Developers in our product development teams in Dublin. As a successful candidate you will join a highly skilled development team configuring and integrating Guidewire applications in complex technology environments; or working on building accelerators or digital products that link seamlessly to our core suite.

Guidewire applications are built in Java and conform to the J2EE standard, the preferred technology of the insurance industry. As a Solutions Consultant you will be able to flex broad technical skills such as Object Oriented programming (JAVA), relational databases (data modeling/SQL), web UI (design and development), XML, and application architecture. Before you write a line of code, we will give you top-class training & you will become a certified Subject Matter Expert on Guidewire products in your first months as part of the Graduate Programme. How you progress in 2/5/10 years - is in your hands. We have a very progressive environment and give you the resources you need to challenge yourself and build on your capabilities – whether you see yourself moving into an architect, team lead or senior consultant position – we will help you get there!

If you have the combination of technical aptitude and business acumen with a logical, problem-solving capability, we would like to hear from you.
