In Finance & Risk Engineering, you'll find an exciting confluence of computer science, finance and mathematics being used to solve for what our shareholders would like from us - a high return for the right risk taken.
ROI engineers work with multiple finance businesses to drive consistency, efficiency and reuse in the operational workflows towards procurement, expense management and reporting of the firm's expenses.
SMART Engineering team provides front-to-back engineering solutions to identify and solve common problems across procurement, contracting, sourcing, travel expenses, vendor payments and vendor risk management. These solutions are used by the entire firm to manage non-compensation expenses and onboard vendors across GS businesses.

The current focus is on building platforms that include self-service tools, secure API components, data transport and reporting infrastructure to integrate with Software as a Service (SAAS) solutions offered on the Cloud. We are a dynamic team of talented developers and architects that collaborate with business and other engineering teams to deliver high profile projects using technologies such as Spark / Hadoop, HTML5/JavaScript and Java.

We are now embarking on a multi-year Firmwide initiative to build a new Procure-To-Payment and Travel-Expense solution using SAP Cloud products such as Concur, Ariba, Fieldglass and S4 HANA. This will involve integrating the cloud solution with the GS systems through a brand new Data Lake store.
