Experienced, Dublin
"My role involves working on customer implementation projects as a software developer. Each customer needs to customise our software to suit their business, and this requires a team of business subject matter experts (customers) and consultant software developers who are expert in Guidewire products and knowledgeable about insurance (my role). A customer project may take several years but I will work on a given project for approx. nine months to deliver a specific goal."
Entry level, Dublin
"My responsibilities can vary from day-to-day, I can be either implementing a proof of concept, conducting demos, fixing defects, investigating different type of solutions, planning ahead, providing knowledge transfers or simply consulting our customers."
Entry level, Dublin
"There's a lot of training which is very beneficial once you're on the project. The projects can be challenging technically, as well as trying to lock down the requirements with the customer (scope creep). But it's very interesting and getting to the end of a sprint feels rewarding. Transitioning between projects doesn't always go smoothly as plans and set dates tend to change."
