Posted Mar 13, 2017 - Requisition No. 57497
You're a software engineer who has develops and integrates large systems with many parts, and can distribute data between those parts. You're interested in Big Data sets, performance analysis, and statistics. You enjoy working with low latency, high throughput systems, and are comfortable thinking about the distance between two cities in both miles and milliseconds. You're interested in using open-source technologies, but if it doesn't exist you're happy to build it.
If this sounds like you, then consider working on the Latency Monitoring System. We're building a system from scratch to explore the latency of market data delivery on Bloomberg's global network. You'll be involved nearly from the beginning, designing a system that helps both developers and business departments understand how data flows through our system and where we can improve. We're looking for someone who can contribute to all aspects of the system, from parsing to data storage to data analysis. You'll work with a small, flexible team on identifying how applications behave under load, which applications can be improved, and where the bottlenecks are.
