    Senior Curriculum Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Guidewire in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter, by phone, while I was unemployed. This gave me hope. The recruiter gauged my interest and skills then referred my resume to the hiring manager. The hiring manager was pessimistic but evaluated my skills and invited me in for a face to face interview.

    The f2f was grueling: I spoke with six people over four hours, was asked to take a software test, and generally put through the wringer. The people were interesting and friendly though.

    I didn't hear from them for several weeks. Then suddenly the recruiter called me with an offer, which I accepted without attempting to negotiate.

    Curriculum Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Guidewire in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The actual interview was very professional. However there was an unnecessary wait after interview. I knew through a friend that the decision had been taken not to make me an offer a full week before the HR rep contacted me with the news.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guidewire in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Excellent process. Polite and expedient HR, and hiring manager.

    Interview Questions
    • More coding questions in interviews than I anticipated. They are not hard questions, but one ought to review basic code tracing and OO terminology. Again, not extremely difficult, but fair.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I recommend that if you have any "issues" that seem related to negotiations, you voice them during the interview process, not during negotiations. This will reflect well on your integrity, a core value of the company.
