Established in 2011, Guidewire’s Irish base provides Professional Services consultancy and software Product Development support to enterprise customers around the world; global customer numbers stand at 330. Guidewire’s largest Professional Services team is based in the Dublin office, and provides consulting expertise, services enablement, and education resources to customers in their transformation programmes.
The Dublin base is also one of Guidewire’s eleven global Product Development Centres, including Kraków, Tokyo, Toronto, and seven in the US. This unit builds Guidewire Core products and is the global centre for building Digital products.
In addition, Guidewire has announced recently two senior promotions at the Dublin office.

This is the first VP appointment for Guidewire in Ireland. Niall Lalor was promoted to Country Manager Ireland, in addition to his role of Practice Director for the Global Services Centre.
“Continued recruitment to both Professional Services and Product Development is vital for us,” said Sandia Ren, Vice President, Professional Services. “We have seen growth of 20% in our Dublin Professional Services team since September 2017 alone, and plan to continue on this trajectory through to the summer. This allows us to extend expertise in a range of practices, including Digital and Cloud.”
