After I had 4 interviews with our COO, Head of Technology, Head of Architect, BA/QA Manager, Program Manager, Architect and Talent Acquisition Manager, I knew that this would be the place I would like to work for and I am very happy to be able to have the chance to work with Guild people.

Excellent. Guild’s Purpose Vision and Values is simple, clear, aspirational and motivating. As a Development Practice Manager, one of my main accountabilities is to set clear mission, strategies and goals for the practice based on Guild’s PVV, and more importantly ensure our people align with those goals and empower them to own and execute.
