MORE ABOUT THIS JOB
What We Do
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 Engineering professionals the flexibility and support they need to reach their goals in and outside of the office.

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals. Founded in 1869, the firm is headquartered in New York and maintains offices in all major financial centers around the world. We commit people, capital and ideas to help our clients, shareholders and the communities we serve to grow.

We are Goldman Sachs Engineering and the driving force behind the firm's technology innovation which has led the industry for many decades. Attracting and investing in the very best engineering talent is how we maintain this position. We are continuously looking for engineers who share our values of collaboration, creativity, motivation, commercial awareness and an obsession for quality.

Accelerate
Accelerate is a firmwide initiative to foster innovation and collaboration across divisions, with a focus on the firm's future growth. The projects we fund will focus on building brand new business ideas for GS, while offering employees the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, start-up like environment.

All of the ideas and businesses in which we are investing have key technical components to explore and develop. As such, Accelerate Engineering is focused on creating a dynamic, flexible environment that can rapidly create and deliver new products for our businesses. Many of these projects are either to deliver proofs-of-concepts or minimum viable products in exciting greenfield environments, while others are expanding current strategic platforms to integrate with one another in new, client-focused ways.

Engineers will play an integral role in helping define both the scope and direction of the businesses as they launch and grow, and they will become core owners of the platforms as they evolve. In short, we're evolving, and we're looking for some of the most talented engineers in the world to help us go further than ever before.

The CostQ team is building a digital platform for modelling and analysing strategic decisions around the firm's entity compositions and strategies. We are looking for a talented and passionate engineer who thrives in an extremely entrepreneurial, fast paced environment.
