Create new businesses, transform finance, and explore a world of opportunity at the speed of markets.

THE TEAM

The Digital Transformation Office partners with Engineering and cross-divisional leadership across the firm to drive our Firmwide Digital Strategy. Digital Strategy is one of the key pillars of the firm's One Goldman Sachs (OneGS) strategy, which aims to deliver the entire firm to meet the holistic needs of clients looking for a greater array of products and services from all parts of the firm. It will deliver differentiated and innovative technology and data solutions through robust and consistent digital experiences on desktop, mobile and application programming interfaces (APIs).
