2 months ago by Connor Ibbetson in Facts, Trends

Founded in 1869 by Marcus Goldman and later joined his son in law Samuel Sachs, Goldman Sachs ($NYSE:GS) is one of the best known multinational investment bank and financial services companies in the world. In 2017, the company pulled in a total revenue of about $32.07 billion and holds assets valued at around $917 billion, making it the fifth largest bank in the United States.

As the company approaches its 150th birthday in 2019, it is looking for an additional 1,400 new staff members. Using Thinknum data, it's possible to see who, where, and what the company is hiring. 

The number of job openings has been fairly stable during the first half of September, with anywhere from 1,410 to 1,370 roles on offer. Goldman Sachs already employs roughly 37,000 people, and according to Glassdoor, those past and present employees are relatively satisfied with the firm.

Two thirds of the workforce reported a positive outlook on Goldman's future, up from just over half this time last year. This does not come as a surprise, as the company is regularly listed on Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For regularly.

Looking at the job titles on offer, it seems Goldman Sachs is mostly after developers, with a strong leaning towards developers with experience in Java. Out of all the current listings for developers at the firm, 80 of them explicitly contained the phrase "Java." Here are the top-24 developer job titles the firm is looking to hire for:
