We are building a new digital business that is a ground up on-cloud engineering project. As such, we are focused on creating a dynamic, flexible environment that can rapidly create and deliver. Engineers will play an integral role in delivering the proofs-of-concepts or minimum viable product in an exciting greenfield environment. They will also help define both the scope and direction of the businesses as it grows.

 

We are looking for a talented and passionate engineer who thrives in an extremely entrepreneurial, fast paced environment. This is a high visibility role, backed by some of the senior-most leaders of the firm, and as such, will require creativity and drive to deliver on an ambitious roadmap.

 

Joining GS Accelerate offers:

  • unparalleled responsibility and the opportunity to make a highly visible global impact;
  • the chance to join a large community of like-minded technologists in a flat organization with a culture that promotes collaboration, “can do” mindsets and teamwork;
  • the freedom to develop solutions that directly impact the bottom line by enabling new growth opportunities for our business, and
  • the opportunity to work on unprecedented greenfield projects that impact Goldman Sachs and the financial services industry broadly

 

What you will be doing:

  • Be responsible for building and maintaining high quality production code including public facing sites
  • You will be working as part of a highly experienced engineering team and jump in at the beginning of a high growth product
  • Design, build and optimize the frontend UIs.
  • Be part of the product roadmap discussions as we grow and evolve the product
  • Stay informed with industry best practices and provide guidance, inspiration and mentorship in engineering excellence

  • 3+ years of web development experience.
  • In-depth knowledge of Javascript and React. Typescript skills will be advantageous, but not mandatory.
  • Hands-on development experience building responsive and performant web applications using React (including hooks and react-router), CSS-in-JS (or SASS).
  • Experience of using and developing RESTful web Services, with proficiency in at least 1 additional language (e.g. Python) is highly desirable.
  • Experience of Javascript and web testing frameworks (JEST, enzyme, Cypress, etc).
