Software Engineering:

Transform our business and work across all areas of the firm to design and implement high-quality, scalable and smart solutions. Leveraging both internal and open source services, we design and develop applications capable of building, maintaining, and processing large & complex data sets.

Ensuring we have the most up-to-date and actionable information, we constantly strive to boost performance and exceed industry standards in order to meet our clients’ evolving needs. We look for ways to improve our operations and enhance our client offerings through internal and external platforms as we build and expand the capacity for data mining, anomaly detection, and business intelligence.

Financial Modelling:

We look beyond the numbers and find the trends. As a member of our team, you will extract meaningful information to engineer advice and solutions that have real-world implications for our clients and the firm.

This level of expert analysis involves large, at times global, data sets – both structured and unstructured – to build predictive models that are relevant to specific business centres and account for market variables.

These quantitative techniques then inform effective and accurate cross-asset trade and portfolio ideas for our clients.

In collaboration with your team and others across the firm, you will build and enhance advanced quantitative and analytical methods, utilizing software to design risk modelling systems and develop machine learning algorithms.

Specifically, your role will focus on providing APIs to clients helping them generate alpha, risk calculations and business metrics. This valuable information will allow them to build and challenge risk models that identify and quantify market and liquidity risk and modelling vulnerabilities.

Infrastructure Engineering:

Infrastructure Engineering is a multi-faceted role that allows you to explore data centre design, networks, storage, cloud computing, big data, application messaging, databases, communications, market data and software languages.

Make things possible for our clients and the firm as you design and build our compute and data infrastructure. You will put your expertise to work in a variety of challenges, from identifying internal hardware needs, to implementing public and private cloud-based solutions to providing seamless, on-demand scaling of our applications.

We provide a robust testing platform that involves the best standards, solutions and tools to ensure uninterrupted operation of all of our lines of business. You will have the opportunity to use data mining techniques to identify and react to problems in the firm’s infrastructure and platforms. A role on this team allows you to use your experience to help us transform the future at Goldman Sachs.

Cyber Security:

Protect our clients and the integrity of our firm around the world in both an advisory and engineering capacity as you develop and propagate our security control strategy. Be on the front line of our operations every day, helping the firm to protect itself & its clients and manage risk. Information security is a top priority and in this role, you will focus on analysis, penetration testing, cryptography and authentication.

This defence involves performing security operations to detect, analyse and respond to threat intelligence and incidents – quickly. We do this by leveraging data mining and machine learning techniques to identify malicious activity and cyber risks.

Working as a part of a larger team, you will help developers create secure applications, and advise the firm’s network and systems engineers as they build infrastructure. Together, we are helping to secure the future of the firm and our clients – every day.
