Wanted: Managers for Goldman Sachs digital asset project

Are you a person with a great deal of experience in project management and digital asset management? If this sounds like something you would be great at, then maybe you want to contact Goldman Sachs as the company is looking for new project managers to lead its digital asset projects program, The Block reported.

Quoting a release from the company, the report noted that the executive level positions will be responsible for developing “comprehensive road maps for distributed ledger technology.” These persons will “play an integral role in helping define both the scope and direction of the business.”

These new positions come on the heels of Goldman Sachs launching a new crypto business. The company has described a desire to go “further than ever before” when it comes to digital assets. The new project will not be a part of the company’s current cryptocurrency derivative trading project. Instead, it will explore new digital asset opportunities for the financial institution.

In the job posting, the company explained that, “Project managers on the Digital Asset team will play an integral role in helping define both the scope and direction of the business. In short, we’re evolving, and looking for some of the most talented individuals in the world to help us go further than ever before.”

Very few details were supplied within the job listing, but it was significant to note that the position will be classified under the financial institution’s securities division. What is clearly known is that they are looking for individuals who can help to create and integrate a fast-paced unit that will develop solutions and products that can transform traditional financial services.

There also seems to be a sense of urgency in getting this project up and running as quickly as possible. They describe the ideal applicants as people who can “work to demanding timescales in a fast-paced team environment,” which is a business speak for long hours and high pressure. Exact qualifications and salary were not provided in the listing.

This is not the first time that Goldman Sachs has developed a subsidiary working on cryptocurrency or blockchain technology. In 2018, the company looked at creating a crypto fund and secure storage service that would greatly reduce the risk of hacking or fraud. At about the same time, Goldman Sachs partnered with Morgan Stanley to become the first banks to use blockchain based payment services. These services were created by IBM and CLS.
