At Goldman Sachs, our Engineers don’t just make things – we make things possible. Solve the most challenging and pressing engineering problems for our clients. Create new businesses, transform finance, and explore a world of opportunity at the speed of markets. Engineering is the front and center of everything we do at Goldman Sachs.

The SecDb Architecture team is responsible for the engineering and management of a business critical pricing andrisk calculation platform called SecDB. The platform is used by all the revenue generating and federation divisions. We are in the process of re-engineering SecDB to become a data-driven and cloud ready platform using modern technologies. A key component of the platform is the firm’s proprietary key-value store that needs to be re-designed. The essential properties of the platform include – real-time global replication, distributed and reliable deployment, transactional guarantees, support for millions of client connections, server-side authorization, etc.

You will have the opportunity to join a rapidly expanding team at an early stage and to make decisions that would affect the shape of the platform for the next 10-15 years, creating innovative technology solutions to support the evolving needs of the global business. As a product specialist in the team, you’ll be responsible for overall product roadmap and participate in day-today decision making on the platform working closely with the Engineering leads. You should be able to speak the language of an Engineering Manager, a Product Manager and a Business Sponsor, so that you can keep all of them in the same page, playing one of the most pivotal roles in the team by being a conduit between developers, management and business and by influencing all the important stakeholders to keep product evolution on track. Although Engineering degree is not mandatory and you are not required to code day-to-day, however having Engineering mindset to solve complex problems by divide-and-conquer method will be a key aspect.
