IBD Technology - Accelerate ClearFactr - Software Engineer

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.

Engineering, which is comprised of our Technology Division and global strategists groups, is at the critical center of our business, and our dynamic environment requires innovative strategic thinking and immediate, real solutions. Want to push the limit of digital possibilities? Start here.

Who We Look For:
Goldman Sachs Engineers are innovators and problem-solvers, building solutions in risk management, big data, mobile and more. We look for creative collaborators who evolve, adapt to change and thrive in a fast-paced global environment.
We deliver applications for Investment Banking that support all aspects of advisory deal origination and new issue underwriting, including client targeting, idea generation, relationship management, pitching, market analytics, deal execution, book-building and revenue reporting.

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 new business ideas for GS, while offering employees the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment.

All of the ideas and businesses in which we are investing have key technical components to investigate and develop. As such, Accelerate Engineering is focused on creating a dynamic, flexible environment that can rapidly create and deliver new products for these businesses. Many of these projects are either to deliver proofs-of-concepts or minimum viable products in 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.

For this specific Accelerate business, ClearFactr, the application is a user-empowering digital modeling solution. It is a full stack application that interacts with users via a browser, and external systems with REST APIs. Implementing and extending these APIs to fully build out the application will be central to the role.

RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS Primary Responsibilities:

  • Drive the technical execution of the engineering needs of the Accelerate business
  • Consult with GS Accelerate core team and sponsors to position the Accelerate business for success
  • Innovate with new technologies and existing strategic platforms to deliver quality products
  • Deliver tactical solutions while focusing on strategic structure and viability
Requirements:
  • Associate level
  • Full stack, hands-on programmer with 3+ years of experience
  • Experience with Java development is required
  • Experience with GWT, HTML-5, JavaScript, RDBs, and AWS is a plus
  • Excellent verbal and written communication, collaboration, and influencing skills
  • Ability to deal with ambiguity/change in a fast paced environment
  • Knowledge of existing strategic firmwide platforms is a plus
