MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

The SecDb SDLC engineering team provides education, tooling and support to the firm’s Engineering community that leverage the SecDb platform for development and delivery of their products. We also provide services for the firm’s control functions to ensure change management adheres to our quality standards and regulatory obligations.

 

The SecDb platform is principally used for risk management but is also employed widely outside of that domain. The platform supports development in C++, Java, Scala, Slang (the firm’s proprietary scripting language), JavaScript and Python.

We are in the process of modernizing our tooling and processes with the aim to converge on a set of vendor and open source solutions used by the broader Engineering community. Key to our success is to maintain a shared and rapid development environment while ensuring the effectiveness of the controls required for safeguarding the change activities.

 

At Goldman Sachs, our culture is one of teamwork, innovation and meritocracy. We often say our people are our greatest asset and we take pride in supporting each colleague both professionally and personally. From collaborative work spaces and mindfulness classes to working from home and flexible work options, we offer our people the support they need to reach their goals in and outside the office.
