Job Summary & Responsibilities
Interested in a job now? Have a global impact with Goldman Sachs without moving!

? Goldman Sachs occupies a state of the art office at the top of the Warsaw Spire. We are hiring people who want to work on interesting challenges with a global impact in the financial sector.
? We are building a full service office which is a peer of our other global GS offices. You will benefit from working alongside Operations, Finance and HCM divisions all with full ownership for their functions or products.
? We are hiring for teams using dozens of technologies; Java 8, C++, Hadoop, Scala, Elastic, Kafka, Docker, Linux, both SQL & non SQL DB's?to mention a few.
? We build a lot; in fact we have 1.5BN lines of code running across a huge infrastructure with 38PB of storage and 550k compute cores. We also give back to the Open Source community (e.g. Eclipse collections) and stay close to the start-up scene.
? Our people have complete product ownership; identifying requirements, design, coding, testing and deployment. We run a low friction SDLC where you learn from peer code review. You will help us progress toward our goal of continuous build and cloud deployment everywhere.
? We care about our work environment and have a casual dress code. We like to run a lean & flat structure where everyone is happy to help out.
? We love to learn and offer robust training resources, including free access to Pluralsight, Safari books, Harvard Business Review and Egghead training platforms. We run internal MOOC-like curated learning, soft skills education, a women's mentoring program and more.
? We have a culture of giving back; last year over 25,000 of our people volunteered on 1,600 community projects across the world. Locally we supported the Warszawa Business Run and IT for SHE Women's Program.

Challenging work ? what will you do?

? The Finance & Risk Platform Engineering team works across the Finance business unit to drive consistency, efficiency and re-use across Finance & Risk Engineering via the delivery of common services, tools, frameworks and practices.
? You will build software to solve common problems across our teams, such as implementing scalable distribution of calculations or providing common web-components to enable consistent, integrated, user applications.
? You?ll have opportunities to work across the full technology stack, from backend development in Java to frontend implementations in JavaScript using React & Angular. We use modern open source technologies such as Spark for distributed calculation and MongoDB for data storage.
? Be part of a large community of like-minded technologists in a very flat organisation with a culture that promotes collaboration and teamwork. You?ll find an exciting confluence of computer science, finance and mathematics being used to solve our shareholder?s requirements ? a high return for the right risk taken.

We are looking for candidates who have:

? Self-motivation to learn about new technologies and take ownership of support issues and development projects.
? Great communication skills ? as daily coordination with our global team is essential.
