There has been press coverage of Goldman beefing up there tech stack as they’ve fallen behind Morgan Stanley in high speed equity execution. A recruiter wont stop bothering me about “Greenfield development” opportunities at Goldman. “It’s more of technology shop than a banking unit”. I’ve said a few times: “not interested at this time”. But they arent taking no for an answer.
So what’s really happening here? are they building something good? or is this another slang/secdb project? How “tech oriented” are they really? i’ve heard Goldman say a few times that they are want to be a tech shop, but I’m dubious.
