Guidewire Expands Software Center in Ireland

Staff Writer | January 14, 2015

Guidewire Software, Inc., announces the expansion of its operations in Ireland with the leasing of additional office space to handle its growing team.  To build on its success in the country, Guidewire anticipates hiring 60 to 80 new staff in 2015 and 2016.

Already employing more than 150 people at its Global Services and Development Centre in Dublin, this expansion will position Guidewire Software Ireland as the company’s largest office outside of the U.S., where it is headquartered.  The additional staff will provide consultancy support and product development resources to some of Guidewire’s 180 customers around the world.  

The jobs announcement by Guidewire Software is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland, the Government agency responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland.

There are two components to the Development Centre and Global Services in Dublin: the European Development Centre (EDC) and the Guidewire Services Centre (GSC). Product development has been a significant factor in the growth of the EDC this year, where its technical team is developing product extensions, accelerators, mobile applications and web portals. The Dublin site is Guidewire’s fifth development center, joining the Guidewire teams in the San Francisco Bay Area; Exton, Pa.; Tokyo; and Toronto as a product development operation.

“We have been very pleased with the quality of talent and output from our Dublin office, and I regard our decision to start operations in Ireland as one of the best we have made in the last several years,” says Marcus Ryu, CEO of Guidewire. “We intend to build on that success with a significant increase in our hiring plans and a deeper integration of our Dublin-based personnel into the career progression opportunities of the company, especially in Europe.”

Dan Lonborg, engineering director and head of the European Development Centre, added, “It's a great vote of confidence in the team and the outstanding work they have done that we’ve decided to increase our investment in the European Development Centre. This expansion will allow us to take on bigger, more complex and new types of projects in Dublin.”  

Recruitment activity is underway to fill the newly created positions. Current available roles include:

  • Software Engineers/Developers
  • Web and Mobile Developers
  • Automation QA Engineers
  • Dev Ops Engineers
  • Product Managers
  • Technical Consultants
  • Graduate Developers.
