Job Description

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.

The Controllers division is responsible for financial control and regulatory obligations of the firm. They safeguard the assets of the firm through an independent scrutiny of the financial information and ensure accurate reporting to internal and external consumers. They provide critical metrics and related analysis to the firm’s and divisions’ leadership to navigate the evolving business strategy, including incumbent and strategic initiatives. Controllers play an important role in the changing landscape of the firm, including its new business ventures and acquisitions, and ensure that these new initiatives are in line with the regulatory expectations as well as controlled in terms of their incorporation into the firm.

Finance engineers help ensure the firm meets all of its financial control and reporting obligations. Working in small and nimble teams, we build critical and complex software to calculate profit and loss (P&L), measure and monitor the firm’s capital, balance sheet and liquidity metrics, and regulatory filings across the globe.
