Job Description

Every day, trillions of dollars pass through the Bloomberg Terminal. As a result, hundreds of thousands of financial professionals rely on our 500+ enterprise applications to manage their portfolios, execute their trades and analyze the markets.

As engineers, we're the ones who build the applications our clients rely on to not just stay informed, but stay ahead of the market. We connect supply and demand across all asset classes on worldwide exchanges. The applications and infrastructure we build embody the speed, agility and financial data that make Bloomberg the go-to for financial professionals across the globe. Bloomberg Enterprise Content data products drive the financial industry.

Enterprise Content is used worldwide by thousands of our clients, and is a rapidly growing business that provides rich programmatic access to the best financial data and services in the industry. Our products span a wide variety of asset classes and data products including Pricing, Corporate Actions, Regulatory and Reference data content sets ( https://www.bloomberg.com/professional/product/reference-data/ ). We build high-performance systems that feed billions of data points per day to our customers that include key financial players.

We are in the process of implementing REST API access ( https://api.bloomberg.com/eap ) for our delivery platform and a web interface https://eap.bloomberg.com . This new access paradigm will help our clients further automate their workflows in accessing Enterprise Content and improve their product experience, while cutting technology costs. We expect this feature-packed API to be very heavily used and will need to scale it horizontally for our users' needs. This platform is expected to be one of the major drivers for our product's growth moving forward.

The website is being built using React ( https://facebook.github.io/react/ ) and Node.js ( https://nodejs.org/ ). REST APIs are being built using Flask ( http://flask.pocoo.org/ ) for the http interface, Ceph ( http://ceph.com/ ) and PostgreSQL ( https://www.postgresql.org/ ) to store data and Solr ( https://lucene.apache.org/solr/ ) for search operations. Your primary responsibility will be as a full stack developer to contribute to both the website functionality and REST APIs.

We interact very closely with our business and sales teams using agile development. We have many opportunities to design and develop innovative solutions to accomplish ever-growing customer requirements.

What's in it for you:

As an engineer on our team, you'll have the opportunity to work with a huge array of technologies developed in Python and Javascript. Additionally, you'll gain experience with React, Node.js, Jest, Testcafe, Flask, Gunicorn, RabbitMQ, Celery, Git, Jenkins, Pytest, dpkg, Docker - whatever technology it takes to get the job done. Our work atmosphere is fast paced, high-energy and friendly.

You'll need to have:

  • Extensive (3+ years) in either Python development experience or Web front-end development experience using JavaScript, including writing idiomatic code, large scale project organization and unit testing
  • Experience developing software in a UNIX environment
  • Stellar problem solving & communication skills and the ability to thrive in a highly collaborative and dynamic work environment


We'd love to see:

  • Interest in REST APIs
  • Experience with front-end web frameworks such as React or Angular
  • Experience with Python web frameworks such as Flask or Django
  • Relational database experience (SQL and table design)
  • Working knowledge of development tools such as debuggers, memory profilers, and performance measurement
  • Experience with low-latency, high-volume, and highly-availability distributed systems

We are extremely proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a real passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world.
