  • MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

    OUR IMPACT

     

    The Securities Division enables our clients to buy and sell financial products, raise funding and manage risk. We make markets and facilitate client transactions in fixed income, equity, currency and commodity products.  In addition, we make markets in and clear client transactions on major stock, options and futures exchanges worldwide.

     

    Prime Services provides hedge fund clients with access to margin financing and securities lending as well as a range of custody related services including securities clearing, settlement and asset servicing.

     

    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 ergonomic services to wellbeing and resilience offerings, we offer our people the flexibility and support they need to reach their goals in and outside the office.

    RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS

    Prime Services Product Development is a client-facing function responsible for the governance and management of the GS platform used daily by the Firm’s hedge fund clients.  Through a constant feedback process with clients, third party service providers, vendors and internal client-facing teams, we are responsible for defining strategy and setting direction for the continued development of the Prime Services platform.  The ‘platform’ comprises a rich web portal that serves up tools and information that help clients administer their daily operations and services for providing clients with systematic access to Firm resources.  Product Development goes right down into the detail too: writing specifications, mapping existing data flows and designing new ones, contributing to UATs, rolling out new developments to clients and providing training.  As subject matter experts there is an element of day-to-day platform support.

     

    We are looking for someone who is deeply inquisitive and who likes to have a thorough understanding of how things work.  The applicant should be highly analytical and be prepared to tackle problems from first principles.  Since the role is client facing, being presentable and personable is a must.  We often face competing demands for the same Firm resources so commercial thinking and an appreciation of cost / benefit assessment will be essential.
