MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

YOUR IMPACT

As the Head of our Product Strategy and Operations on our PFMG Product team, a new high priority focus area, you will envision the future of the high-net worth product for Goldman Sachs clients.  A new business line for the firm that has historically targeted only ultra-high net worth individuals, we are now expanding to serve a much broader clientele. 

 

You will be supporting the Head of Product of PFMG, and hold a range of responsibilities that lay the foundation for success of the team and the business.  Specific duties include but are not limited to: creating forums and governance for effective executive updates (and the corresponding materials), managing the overall budget of the business, onboarding new team members, ensuring we have scalable, repeatable processes across our product development process.

 

You are strong at execution, and able to collaborate across business partners to not only help create our vision and strategy, but also execute on it.  You are a jack of all trades, and can dig-in wherever is most needed.

 

We are aiming to deliver a product that is best-in-class.
