ROLES 
You probably know Goldman Sachs as a leading financial services firm. What might surprise you is that over one quarter of our employees, more than 8,000 professionals, make up our Technology Division, the largest in the firm. At Goldman Sachs Technology, we build solutions to some of the most complex problems. From application development to managing data, risk analysis to safeguarding information and promoting environmental responsibility, our commitment to best-in-class technology provides Goldman Sachs with a competitive advantage. 

At Goldman Sachs we deal with real-world technology challenges of a size, scale and complexity that very few companies face. Success in our industry hinges on constant innovation and on the technology that backs it up. It’s the ability to create and utilize something that wasn’t there before, and to do it first. Our technology is our competitive edge. That is why we build it ourselves and why, more than ever, we’re investing in people who can make innovation happen. 

We’re looking for people who are ambitious and innovative, who want to be empowered early in their careers and like to work in a collaborative, team-driven environment. As a global, multi-disciplinary technology organization, we not only support workplace diversity and internal mobility but are committed to leading the way. We require technical proficiency, of course, along with exceptional academic achievement. But the qualities and talents we especially prize are rarer: professionalism, initiative, creativity, and most of all integrity. We want candidates who are willing to learn and put their learning to work. We can teach you the rest. 

As a Business Software Engineer, you will be aligned to one of the firm’s major lines of business, responsible for developing technical solutions for our financial professionals and external clients; for instance, creating high volume, web-based trade processing architecture or developing software applications for the firm's various advisory and e-commerce initiatives. Candidates for this role will have the desire and ability to write high-quality, thoughtful code; creativity coupled with excellent analytical and problem-solving abilities; strong communication skills; and an interest in financial markets. 

As a Platform Engineer, you will develop and maintain the technology infrastructure and core frameworks that drive our businesses. Whether as an application developer or system engineer, you will apply your technical skills and problem-solving abilities to a range of complex problems in such critical areas as cloud computing; machine learning and big data; application platforms; data center products; end user and workplace solutions; developer tools and practices; and enterprise architectures. Candidates for this role will have strong technical, collaborative and problem-solving abilities. 

As a DevOps Engineer, you will be responsible for detecting, managing and mitigating a range of risks in the firm's operating environment, developing analytical models to identify risks; remediating at-risk applications and components; implementing standard software-development practices and test frameworks; managing the operational risk of production environments; and implementing controls to reduce risks associ-ated with information security, system capacity and vendor products. 

RESPONSIBILITIES 

Summer Internship Program 
The Technology Summer Internship program is a 10-week program, starting the first week of June and ending the second week of August. The first couple of days will consist of general orientation to the division and the firm, after which you will be placed with your team for the summer. You will work on daily activities and projects with your team and attend divisional and technology-specific learning series presentations as well as networking events to help you form relationships with your fellow interns and managers within the division.
