Senior Software Engineer - Front End

Senior Front End Software Engineer – Krakow Development Center.

Do you have a restless curiosity? Are you driven by interrogating problems? We’re looking for a Senior Front End Software Engineer to join our team in Krakow. You’ll play a key role in building products that improve the experience of millions of Guidewire customers worldwide. Working with a team of specialists who will push you to dig deeper and achieve more.

Driven by integrity and motivated by the collective challenge.  

At Guidewire, we're changing the face of insurance. Developing and delivering technology that's shaping the future of the property and casualty industry. We're a global team of more than 2,400 working at scale and speed across a 500-million-dollar platform that gives insurers the tools they need to take care of their customers.

Key Project: Guidewire front end platform

Jutro is our front-end platform. In the modern world of complex front-end applications, providing a great developer and user experience is a critical need. Jutro teams build the platform, which includes the library of reusable components and the capabilities on top of them: localization, analytics, theming, and so on. There are also integrations with Cloud Services, such as authentication and API Data layer support. It’s all about using the latest React-based technologies, the latest JavaScript API and ES-2020 features, Amazon Web Services and TypeScript types (ts-check). One of the significant features of Jutro is the metadata-driven configuration: the framework is built so that nearly everything in the apps based on it can be changed after delivery to production, merely by making configuration changes in the cloud. As a result, the platform is used across Guidewire teams and products. Working with Jutro, it’s easy to add features requested by customers and see them used almost immediately in the platform.

Whatever the project you’ll be collaborating with the brightest minds, so you’ll learn with the best and keep growing.
