Great first intern experience working at a modern software company.

Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

ProsVery intelligent group of people working at Guidewire, strong adherence to agile development practices, everyone is willing to help out in any way possible.

As this was my first intern experience working at a software company, I did not know what to expect. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised at how modern software companies run today. The atmosphere and environment at Guidewire are what make working there truly an enjoyable experience.

ConsThe insurance realm is not particularly interesting (but working on the software can be somewhat more removed, making it more interesting)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Professional, open culture and Customer focussed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Mateo, CA

    I have been working at Guidewire


    Pros: Test driven development. Many very talented individuals. Excellent Work and Life balance.
