Are you passionate about developing mission-critical, high quality software solutions, using cutting-edge technology, in a dynamic environment? 

We are looking for talented and enthusiastic professionals to join our engineering team and help build out a broad set of user facing and data processing platforms.


The Goldman Sachs Compliance Division prevents, detects and mitigates regulatory and reputational risk across the firm, and helps to strengthen the firm's culture of compliance. As an independent control function and part of the firm's second line of defense, Compliance:

  • assesses the firm's compliance, regulatory and reputational risk;
  • monitors for compliance with new or amended laws, rules and regulations;
  • designs and implements controls, policies, procedures and training;
  • conducts independent testing;
  • investigates, surveils and monitors for compliance risks and breaches;
  • and leads the firm's responses to regulatory examinations, audits and inquiries. 

Compliance Engineering empowers these activities by building and operating a suite of software platforms and applications. We are a team of more than 300 engineers and scientists who work on the most complex, mission-critical problems. We have access to the latest technology and to massive amounts of structured and unstructured data. We leverage modern frameworks to build responsive and intuitive UX/UI and Big Data applications, incorporating cutting-edge AI and efficient processes to drive them.

Compliance Engineering does not build tools in a silo. Our user base spans thousands of users globally. We partner with Compliance Officers across divisions, to fully understand the financial products, business strategies, and regulatory regimes. This knowledge enables us to build long-lasting software solutions, and to innovate with a purpose. 

Compliance Engi​​neering is looking to fill multiple full stack software engineering roles at the Analyst, Associate, and VP level at our Salt Lake City office.




As a member of our team, you will partner globally across multiple divisions and engineering teams to create end-to-end solutions. You will be able to innovate and incubate new ideas, and you will learn and share knowledge across the organization. You will have an opportunity to work on a broad range of projects, including monitoring of suspicious transactions; developing large-scale graph and search platforms; visualizing patterns of customer or employee behavior in an investigative UI; and automating workflows with new platforms and virtual assistants.

​You will be responsible for designing, implementing, testing, deploying, and maintaining software systems across the full stack of our products. All our engineers are expected to be well versed in Java/Javascript. Our tech stack includes Hadoop/HBase; React/Angular; and platform engineering frameworks such as MongoDB, ORM frameworks, DropWizard, and others. An additional key part of engineering life at Goldman Sachs is the migration of legacy applications into these new stacks.



A successful candidate will possess:

  • A Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a similar field of study.
  • 5+ years of expertise in Java, C++, Scala, Python, or a similar programming language.
  • Proficiency in SQL and data manipulation.
  • Experience in at least one of the following: distributed systems, platform engineering, large-scale system design, data mining, information retrieval, natural language processing, NoSQL databases, UI development with AngularJS or React.
  • A very strong work ethic, and a willingness to learn and partner with others.
  • The ability (and tenacity) to clearly express ideas and arguments in meetings and on paper.
  • Demonstrable experience in end-to-end solutions
  • A track record of influence with senior stakeholders 
  • Prior roles with management oversight duties, for candidates aspiring to be team leads

Knowledge of the financial industry and compliance or risk functions in particular would be welcome, but are not expectations.
