Our core value is building strong relationships with our institutional clients, which include corporations, financial service providers, and fund managers. We help them buy and sell financial products on exchanges around the world, raise funding, and manage risk. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial team with a passion for the markets, with individuals who thrive in fast-paced, changing environments and are energized by a bustling trading floor.

RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS

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 technologies we use are broad, with our technology stack consisting of at least Java, React, Redux, MongoDB, SQL, Apache Spark, Scala and Slang (an in-house language similar to Python). We are building large scale distributed ecosystem that can process tens of millions of trades in near real time and deliver to services such as confirmation, payments and settlements, clearing, global regulators and distribute information  to various firm functions in near real time and over OLAP/Big Data platforms. 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.

  • Participate in the design, development, testing, roll out and documentation of our systems.
  • Work closely with business users and other developers globally.
  • Understand the business domain and requirements.
  • Design and implement scalable APIs for trade processing and data distribution across asset classes.
