  • MORE ABOUT THIS JOB


    For the Investing and Lending businesses, 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 andSTP 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.

    Investing and Lending encompasses three main businesses at Goldman Sachs:
    - A multi-asset principal investing desk focused primarily on distressed situations in both the public and private markets including investments in real estate and non-performing loan portfolios
    - Mortgages Loans trading desk, who both originate and trade mortgage loans on the secondary market
    - Structured Finance Investing & Lending, who provide funding solutions to clients
    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.

    Your time will be split between contributing to the long-term engineering vision for the business, executing on that strategy by building well-designed and tested software, and day-to-day deal support to ensure our risk is appropriately captured in our systems. The team sits directly with the desk, so you will be working closely with the research analysts, Traders, Strats and Operations on both strategic initiatives and tactical enhancements. As such strong, two-way communication skills are critical to success in this seat.

    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.

    • Ensure business continuity and improve production stability
    • Demonstrate effective stakeholder management whilst prioritising competing requirements or projects

    SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE WE ARE LOOKING FOR
    • Bachelor degree in a technical (computer science, mathematics, science, engineering) discipline
    • 2+ years experience of commercial software development
    • Pro-active, sense of ownership and responsibility
