What We Do
CoE, or Center of Excellence, as Gartner Group describes it, brings together people from different disciplines to “concentrate existing expertise and resources … to attain and sustain world-class performance and value”.
At Goldman Sachs, the primary goal of Automation CoE is to automate complex business processes across our trading, banking, consumer, asset management and other businesses by stitching together multiple solutions built with different tools. How is it different from typical software development?
Instead of tuning JVM GC performance or hunting down concurrency bugs, we focus on high level software components that directly drive business processes and enable ‘process-as-code’. Our success is not measured by lines of code, but through superior client experience, higher straight through processing (“STP”) rates, reduced risk, greater efficiency, and higher employee morale in moving their work from manual activities to be insights driven decision making.
Instead of spending most of time designing class hierarchies or coding in our corner, we also spend a lot of time collaborating. Close collaboration with core engineering and divisions is central to every project we work on.
We don’t indulge in our favorite programming languages. Instead we work with many vendor tools and platforms to get things done. Salesforce, Automation Anywhere, Alteryx, Instabase, and Appian are some examples. A few common patterns of automation and digitization are data extraction, multi-divisional workflows and analytics.
Who We Are
We value teamwork over individual brilliance. We care deeply about our coworkers. We work very hard to create a sense of community. Not only we share our knowledge with members of the team, but also with engineers from other teams.
We value learning over existing skills. We are continuously upskilling ourselves to meet the challenges of process automations, which often involve a wide spectrum of technologies, in-house services and vendor tools.
Who We Look For
Most of our work is project-driven instead of product-driven. Every project involves integration of multiple tools and collaboration with other teams. We are looking for candidates who:
