ENGINEERING

What We Do

At Goldman Sachs, our Engineers don't just make things - we make things possible. Change the world by connecting people and capital with ideas. Solve the most challenging and pressing engineering problems for our clients. Join our engineering teams that build massively scalable software and systems, architect low latency infrastructure solutions, proactively guard against cyber threats, and leverage machine learning alongside financial engineering to continuously turn data into action. Create new businesses, transform finance, and explore a world of opportunity at the speed of markets .

Engineering, which is comprised of our Technology Division and global strategists groups, is at the critical center of our business, and our dynamic environment requires innovative strategic thinking and immediate, real solutions. Want to push the limit of digital possibilities? Start here.

Who We Look For

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

Your Impact

The Merchant Banking Division is a multi-asset principal investing desk participating in both the public and private markets including investments in equities, credit, corporate loans, real estate and non-performing mortgage loan portfolios. There is huge focus in growing the business, including providing access to our successful investment strategies to external clients.

For the Merchant Bank, technology is transforming all stages of our deal lifecycle. We need engineers to build cutting edge platforms to help drive opportunity discovery, pricing, execution, deal management and STP risk representation, to name a few. Automation and efficiency tooling are no longer a luxuries, they are essential to stay competitive in the markets we operate in. The team uses a mix of both open source industry standard (Java, Javascript, React, Angular, SQL, MongoDB), and internal proprietary (SecDB/Slang) technologies for product deliveries to our users.

Our unique seat means we are exposed to complex financial products and a diverse range of deals. Given the exotic nature of the businesses, we solve new problems not only for our own business unit, but sometimes for the whole firm.

We are looking for a senior engineer. You will be working closely with the global engineering team as well as the investment analysts, execution team, trading, Strats and operations functions to build platforms that will provide the business with an edge over competitors and enable the business to scale to its full potential. Your time will be split between developing and driving long-term engineering vision for the business, executing on that strategy by building well-designed and tested software, and provide day-to-day deal support to ensure our risk is appropriately captured in our systems.

This is an excellent leadership opportunity for someone with an entrepreneurial mindset. If you enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, producing highly impactful engineering solutions, collaborating with other smart and driven colleagues, then this is the role for you.
