Guidewire Configuration Developer
Today's architectures are not simply about individual applications. It's about how apps fit into the business environment and work in concert with each other. When the business person or end customer hits that right-click on the mouse, it's not just the GUI or the app behind it capturing the info and sending it on. It's more like launching a set of applications that talk to each other to complete the request.
And you're the person that ties it all together. You understand how these applications need to work together and how data flows and how processes are launched. You work with analysts and business people to define data and flows and build solutions that make it happen. With the platforms today - cloud, server, web, mainframe, desktop - and the variety of architectures, each touch point and flow is unique. You are creative, inquisitive, and leverage tools like MuleSoft and others to make the ties that deliver the business solution.
Our client is looking for you. They have a collaborative and creative work environment based on a continuous delivery model using the Agile framework. The group of developers you will work with are smart yet have a sense of humility and their nature is very team oriented, working together creatively, always ready to help the other person.

You will be in a position to create solution design recommendations and estimates and effectively present solution options for implementation, working within a collaborative team environment.
