MORE ABOUT THIS JOB 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. Create new businesses, transform finance, and explore a world of opportunity at the speed of markets.

Who We Look For

As a member of the Workplace Engineering Data and Tools Development team, the candidate will create platforms and solutions for interacting with core workplace infrastructure including e-mail, voice, multimedia, mobile and many other domains. Our software is the backbone of many foundational infrastructure technologies that power work across all divisions of the firm. The candidate will work with engineering groups to identify opportunities for automation, risk reduction, and enablement of new productivity-enhancing products. The candidate will join a highly collaborative and dynamic team practicing agile software development.

RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS HOW YOU WILL FULFILL YOUR POTENTIAL

In addition, as the team consists of employees of all experience levels, a candidate must be able to work efficiently with a diverse set of individuals.
• Further, being able to mentor more junior employees and being able to receive direction from team members at all levels are key skills that will enable success in both the short and long term.
