At Goldman Sachs, SRE is responsible for the availability and reliability of our firm's most critical platform services, and ensures they meet the requirements of our internal and external users.

As a Technical Project Manager (TPM) within SRE, you will need to be intimate with the execution plan for your projects, anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management and balance the business needs versus technical constraints.
