Posted May 31, 2022 - Requisition No. 74987

Do you ever wonder how a hedge fund makes money? Or what tools a portfolio manager uses to rebalance their portfolios against complex mathematical models and benchmarks? Are you curious about the ins and outs of a fund manager's workflow? If so, keep reading. Our team needs people like you.

The AIM (Asset & Investment Manager) Engineering team builds software for all Bloomberg-supported asset classes (equity, fixed income, swaps, commodities, options) for hundreds of institutional firms with more than $15 trillion in assets. When hedge fund managers are using our applications, they have mere seconds to absorb the information on the screen and make critical decisions that move the financial markets around the world. As you can imagine, scale, speed, and usability are our primary concerns while developing software.

What’s in it for you? 

As developers, we don't like to be boxed into specific roles. For example, even if you consider yourself a front-end developer, there are plenty of opportunities here to work on and learn about middleware and back-end systems. The opposite is also true: backend engineers will have the opportunity to work on the whole vertical of the tech stack as they drive the implementation of each feature. At Bloomberg, we take pride in owning the end-to-end development of our software stack. 

What makes this job great is not only the opportunity to work on tough problems with smart engineers, but also the exposure you'll get to Product Managers, clients, salespeople, and other Engineering teams. This unique combination will give you a comprehensive view of key concepts and inner workings of the financial industry.

You need to have:

 - 3+ years of experience with full-stack software development in any major programming language (JavaScript, TypeScript, C++, Java, C#, etc)
 - Working knowledge of asynchronous programming techniques
 - Solid understanding of modern application architecture and design patterns

  • BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related technology field

We'd love to see:

 - Experience with Node.js or other server-side JavaScript implementations
 - Experience programming in Python or other interpreted languages
 - Working knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems
 - Familiarity with continuous integration and continuous deployment and test automation frameworks

Bloomberg is an equal opportunities employer, and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
