Guidewire Software Creates New Positions

Guidewire Software, a global provider of software solutions to the general insurance industry, is creating 75 new positions in 2013 to add to the existing 50 employees already employed at its Global Services' and Regional Development Centre in Blanchardstown, Dublin.

Guidewire Software was founded in 2001 in Silicon Valley and has grown to become a market leader in the provision of core system software for the global general insurance industry.

Guidewire established its Dublin location in July 2011. The significant expansion plan is a direct result of the outstanding contribution that the Irish team has made to Guidewire's growth globally. This expansion in Ireland will make Guidewire Ireland the largest office outside of the US and will bring to 125 the number of people the company expects to employ in Ireland. The extra staff will provide consultancy support and additional product development resources to support some of Guidewire’s customers which now span 16 countries and four continents.

Niall Lalor, who leads the Guidewire Services Centre in Dublin and was the company’s first Irish employee, attributes this growth to the outstanding results delivered by the Dublin-based team. "Our team has quickly gained the confidence of Guidewire customers globally, to such an extent that in our 18 months of operation we have significantly expanded the scope of projects we work on. We now expect to add 75 new team members to meet additional expected demand. This is a really exciting time to be at Guidewire."
