Intern Engineering Expo Highlights Latest Technology at Goldman Sachs
Over 300 summer interns participated in the fifth annual Goldman Sachs Engineering Expo recently, where more than 150 of the firm’s engineers showcased various technologies used across the firm and offered hands-on demonstrations and information. The exposition was held at Goldman Sachs’ Jersey City office on June 28th.
“The Expo is helpful for ensuring that interns have insight across the entire Engineering organization and giving them an understanding for how expansive it is,” said Yuki, a vice president in Technology Campus Recruiting. “It’s a networking platform for students and an opportunity to learn first-hand how different groups are making an impact in driving our business.”
There were demonstrations of virtual reality and machine learning, along with platforms developed in-house including Deal Link, an application for investment bankers which automates part of the IPO process. Interns also learned more about Marquee, a Goldman Sachs’ web, mobile and API-based platform that provides execution workflows, risk and analytics, and relevant content directly to institutional clients. The Marquee Engineering team supplies consumer-grade responsive interfaces and enterprise-grade APIs using leading open source technologies and agile principles, and partners with sales and traders in the Securities Division on the product.
“It is really cool to meet the teams that develop and maintain the tools I am using for my project, and to be able to make meaningful connections with them,” said Jhonmattew, an intern on the Cloud Platforms team.
Throughout the summer, interns at the firm are given the chance to make meaningful impact on the firm by working on different projects. The Expo allowed interns to see how their individual projects fit into broader initiatives at the firm.
