For instance, applications developers may help create high volume, web-based trade processing architecture or develop software applications for the firm's various advisory and e-commerce initiatives. Responsibilities span all phases of the project life-cycle.

Some of the technologies we work with include Java™ technology, C, C++, UNIX®, Microsoft® technology, Perl, XML, HTML, Visual Basic, VBScript and N-tier architecture.


Application Developers start by attending an extensive training program. Although technical skills will serve as the foundation for their careers, their individual success and, in turn, the success of the firm also depends on their analytical, communication and problem-solving skills. They will be offered ongoing training and support to prepare them for the tremendous career opportunities available at Goldman Sachs.
