Saumil Executive Director/Vice President, Network and Voice Services Technology division, Bangalore

The most rewarding part of our job is that you work with the very latest technology platforms. You have the chance to build a wide range of expertise. You get real responsibility as soon as you can handle it.

My Work

I work in the Technology division of Goldman Sachs, currently managing the network, telecom and multimedia functions for the office in Bangalore, India. My responsibilities include designing, engineering, and implementing tactical and strategic technology solutions for the firm.

The most interesting aspect of my job is meeting and dealing with extremely talented people in the industry, including sales representatives, product managers, account managers, technical specialists and executive officers. This provides me with the opportunity to stay on top of new technology and adoption trends in the marketplace.

Excellent communication and coordination skills are a must as our work is dynamic and fast-paced. Team work is stressed in everything we do. It’s one of the firm’s 14 business principles: ”We have no room for those who put their personal interests ahead of the interests of the firm and its clients.” We put that into practice every day.

My Day

Recently my team has been involved with creating and building several global functions. This has required us to collaborate extensively with our global counterparts. It has also provided us the opportunity to improve processes, systems and workflows.

The most rewarding part of our job is that you work with the very latest technology platforms. You have the chance to build a wide range of expertise. You get real responsibility as soon as you can handle it.

At Goldman Sachs, you’re recognized and rewarded for your hard work and efforts. In a relatively short period of time we’ve delivered and performed remarkably well. As a result, our fairly new, capable and confident team has been getting involved with key initiatives and new projects.

My Path

I first met people from Goldman Sachs at a career fair at Penn State University. I applied for a summer internship here and at a number of other firms as well. But by the time the offer arrived from Goldman Sachs, I had learned enough about the firm to realize that this was a great opportunity. I accepted and shortly thereafter learned exactly why it is a leading investment bank and one of the most admired firms in the world.

I was awestruck by the culture, team work and professional attitude of the people I met. Everyone here is motivated and dedicated to their work, and every effort is made to complete projects in a timely and effective manner.

Myself

I graduated in Electrical Engineering with a specific interest in networking and telecom and always envisioned myself to be working in this field. Honestly, eight years ago, I did not expect to be working at an investment bank, however the experience here has been very enriching and exciting. You work closely with various businesses to understand their requirements and to appropriately customize and recommend technology solutions.

Goldman Sachs is unique as it emphasizes the investments made in technology to keep us ahead of our competitors. This is a great place if you want to be involved with the latest technologies and want to work with smart, energetic and passionate people.
