Posted Mar 11, 2019 - Requisition No. 74067

The Bloomberg Structured Products team is responsible for all data, cash flows and analytics of the two million plus bonds that make up the structured products universe. Because of how large and complex these securities are, we own some of the largest databases, run the highest hit services that return billions of points of data, and maintain the best libraries of cash flow models at Bloomberg.

Who we are:

We are a team of over 120 engineers who work side by side with modelers, product, and other engineering groups. We are problem-solvers who think outside the box. Our tech stack is built using Python, C++ and JavaScript, which allows us to easily add more esoteric asset-backed security sectors like airplane leases, student loans, and credit card deals. Currently, we are working on migrating to a new service-oriented architecture, serving billions of requests per day. A cluster of hundreds of very powerful Linux machines help us to serve data, run simulations and provide a plethora of analytics to both internal and external clients. We are overhauling our user interface and client APIs to be service based.

Who you are:

You are hard-working, innovative and want to solve interesting and challenging problems. You enjoy collaborating and working closely with other people. You’re eager to learn, a quick thinker and have an interest in the Structured Products domain.

We'll trust you to:

  • Work directly with product owners to build products that our clients use to solve complex problems
  • Take ownership of technical solutions, development and delivery to production
  • Develop in all levels of a web application stack, from the client to server side

You need to have:

  • BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technology field
  • 2+ years’ industry work experience
  • Working knowledge in a scripting (Python, JavaScript, Ruby, etc.) or compiled language (Java, C++)
  • Strong knowledge and understanding of data structures, object oriented design and systems/applications programming
  • Strong communication skills
  • Strong problem solving skills especially those involving numbers and math

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with automated testing tools
  • Strong code review skills
  • Experience in Python/Linux
