What We Do

At Goldman Sachs, our Engineers don’t just make things – we make things possible.  Change the world by connecting people and capital with ideas.  Solve the most challenging and pressing engineering problems for our clients.  Join our engineering teams that build massively scalable software and systems, architect low latency infrastructure solutions, proactively guard against cyber threats, and leverage machine learning alongside financial engineering to continuously turn data into action.  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.


Your Impact

Do you want to make a significant impact and transform GSAM’s $1 trillion business? As a GSAM Data Distribution engineer you will be responsible for building out the  platform for processing and delivering large amounts of data using technologies like Spark, Hadoop, Kafka, MemSQL, Elastic and Data Lake, alongside traditional RDMS technologies.  We are a consumer driven team, with the goal to transform how GSAM departments access data, providing a center of technical and functional excellence.

You will provide the infrastructure, frameworks and functional expertise to other engineers and will be called upon to understand the problem domain of our clients, and interface with enterprise level technology teams to evaluate best solutions for GSAM.



Responsibilities and Qualifications


How you will fulfill your potential

  • 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.
  • Work in a highly innovative technical team with plenty of opportunity to improve and grow your technical skills.
  • See your changes directly impact the business.


Skills and Experience we are looking for

  • A multi-discipline hands-on developer interested in solving real-world problems in the space of information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design and data distribution that will transform the GSAM business
  • Proficient in an object oriented language like Java/Scala. Eager to learn new ones including functional programming languages. Knowledge of Scala and reactive frameworks like Vert.x is a plus
  • Embrace test-driven development and other agile techniques focusing more on their fundamental philosophies then the techniques themselves, allowing better judgement as to when to apply each in order to produce quality software.
  • Ability to work closely with users to understand the problem space, identify solutions and implement them quickly.
  • Focused on developing scalable solutions that solve a particular problem, but are generalized to the right level such that the same solution can be applied to other problems.
  • Constantly trying to improve existing systems / architecture.
  • Keep on top of the latest news in software development from NoSQL/Distributed databases to Reactive Application design to micro-services.


Contact us if you would like to join our global team of like-minded, quality focused professionals in a fast-paced environment with high focus on product delivery and constant innovation where you will be able to make a significant impact to GSAM.
