Your Impact

We are looking for a product designer for the Goldman Sachs Financial Cloud.  You will be responsible for playing a key role in designing complex data-rich experiences across web, desktop & mobile for the Goldman Sachs Developer community for a variety of client segments across Consumer, Institutional, Small Business and Corporates. Throughout the design process—from creating user flows and wireframes to building user interface mockups and prototypes—you’ll envision how people will experience our products, and bring that vision to life across developer.gs.com

As a Product Designer, you’ll rely on user-centered design methods to craft user experiences from paper prototypes to production. The Product Designer is a key member of the GS Product Development organization and you’ll collaborate with your design partners to leverage and evolve the GS Design System to build innovative and inspired products that developers will embrace.

Product Design is how we create intuitive, innovative, and elegant products that our customers love. We strive to learn and understand our client developers’ needs, behaviors, and emotions to gather insights that inform product strategy and design. Our teams include designers, researchers, and engineers who are passionate about quality, usability, and simplicity. We work on cross functional teams to solve complex challenges and craft experiences that highlight our developers’ unique capabilities and personalities.

Our #1 business principle is "Our clients' interests always come first. Our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow". Every customer is given maximum attention to understand their needs. We adopt the most appropriate approach to drive the business of the customer or institution towards the desired growth. 

Our team is diverse and global - you will be joining a nimble, cross-disciplinary team of designers, researchers and product managers in offices in the US, Europe, and Asia. We enjoy taking deep dives into complex problems, surrounded by a network of passionate people who help each other grow.  Our team's range of skills and diversity of approaches allows us to partner with business and technology teams firmwide to create digital products that are easy to use, engaging, powerful, and competitive. 

As we build the platform for the developer ecosystem of the future, success will be defined by both the developer and product publisher experience.
