We often say our people are our greatest asset and we take pride in supporting each colleague both professionally and personally.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Goldman Sachs Engineers are innovators and problem-solvers, building solutions in trade processing, big data, cloud computing and more. We look for creative collaborators who evolve, adapt to change and thrive in a fast-paced global environment.

The Listed Derivatives and Clearing business within Prime Services is a technology intensive business that provides our clients with global trading and clearing services for listed derivatives (e.g. futures & options).

Listed Clearing Engineering partners closely as a front-to-back unit with Trading, Sales, and Operations to generate a direct impact on business revenue. We are committed to leading and building the best in class middle and back office platforms to meet dynamic client needs and high trading volumes.

The functional complexity of listed derivatives markets, products and their lifecycle means that you will always feel challenged and inspired to innovate.

The Listed Clearing industry is currently going through a transformation in how Clearing Houses, Clearing Brokers (GS) and clients interact and do business and this directly impacts how our platforms are being designed, architected and distributed. It is an exciting time for you to make your impact on this transformation.
