When government is at its best, diverse ideas are at work. The same is true of Bloomberg Government (BGov). Our ability to innovate and serve our clients means diversity and inclusion are essential. If you’re eager to join a multi-faceted team that celebrates and leverages difference, if you have the vision to see how information can transform “business as usual” and if you are hungry to put your builder skills to good use, then stop reading this and join our team.

Our web-based application provides performance analytics, access to more than 35,000 aggregated news sources, in-depth legislative tracking, regulation monitoring and research tools to find actionable information in federal spending.
