MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

Our clients increasingly require high throughput straight through processing systems handling large amounts of data, which is driving a re-architecture of our current platforms. The Derivative Trade Processing team is looking for software developers who can deliver technology solutions to enable new business activities, allow businesses to scale up, and satisfy the needs of a wide range of functions.

We are a highly innovative team building an architecture from scratch, and we take full ownership of our systems. The projects that you work on will contribute to creating a set of platforms, services and APIs that can be used for multiple business needs, and which you will help design, build and deliver.

This role will enable you to grow technical depth and expertise, and you will be working closely with senior technical experts. You will also have the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of derivative products life cycle.

The technologies we use are broad, with our technology stack consisting of at least Java, React, Redux, MongoDB, SQL, Apache Spark, and Slang (an in-house language similar to Python). A willingness to learn new languages, technologies and the business, and apply best software development practices will be key to your success in this role.

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.
