"Senior Software Engineer - DevOps"

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO


Nice work life balance, really good co workers, fantastic tech stack - EKS, Datadog, Istio, pay is good when compared to salaries to other companies in general.


Growing pains of moving to cloud stack, pay can be better for what we do

Advice to Management

IMO stock prices does not reflect Guidewire's value, need to make others aware of the company and progress.
