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.

Transaction Banking
We aim to build a modern and digital-first transaction banking solution to serve our clients. Our business combines the strength, heritage, and expertise of a 150-year-old firm with the agility and entrepreneurial spirit of a tech start-up. Our goal is to provide a best-in-class digital product that helps clients to succeed by giving them a holistic view of their business. Through the use of modern technology built on the cloud, we are the alternative to legacy platforms. We’re a team of diverse experts helping our clients to build the future of their Treasury.

 

This is a leadership role working closely with our engineering and product teams and interacting directly with clients. We are looking for a solution architect with deep subject matter expertise in the transaction banking business and strong technical skills. The work starts with developing an end to end solution that addresses our clients’ needs by leveraging our capabilities. The role requires a good understanding of the transaction banking business, our platform and clients’ systems. It also requires excellent oral and written communication and the ability to convey complex solutions to clients and internal stakeholders. We expect the successful candidate to become a trusted advisor to clients and establish strong partnerships with engineering and product peers. A Solution Architect also leads the post-sale activities by becoming the main client contact for all integration matters. That requires strong technical skills to advice clients on security, connectivity, data exchange protocols as well as help them troubleshoot integration issues. It requires liaising with internal engineering teams and providing the right level of information to effectively address client queries. Solution Architects work closely with our Client Implementation team to ensure the smooth execution of client onboarding.
