Our team:

Bloomberg AIM (Asset and Investment Manager) is our buy-side trading platform used by the biggest players in finance. Our platform is a one-stop shop that enables everything from idea generation to trade execution and post-trade operations. It is a market leading platform used to manage trillions of dollars every single day.

Our London team develops the Decision Support function. Our application allows fund managers to review market information in seconds and helps them make critical decisions. We are taking on the challenge of moving vast amounts of real time data to the client and creating workflows for instant analysis and action. Our focus is on performance, latency, scaling, intuitive user experience, and financial workflows.

Technologies and the environment:

Our application is written TypeScript, but you will get exposure to the full stack - including C++ and Python back end services. We put a special emphasis on performance testing, automation, and unit/integration testing. Bloomberg embraces Agile and InnerSource. We collaborate with many Engineering teams at Bloomberg, and contribute to their codebases. We contribute back to the OSS community whenever possible, actively working with TC39, contributing to TypeScript and other OSS projects.

You'll need to have:

  • Strong JavaScript or TypeScript knowledge
  • Experience designing and building client workflows and UIs
  • A passion for testing, rapid delivery, and continuous integration
  • A working knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems

We'd love to see:

  • Contributions to OSS (particularly TypeScript or vs.code)
  • Experience with Node.js
  • Familiarity with Haskell or other FP languages
  • Experience with C#, C++ or other OOP languages
  • Exposure to financial instruments and workflows

You will use:

  • TypeScript
  • GTK Toolkit
  • Node.js
  • Jenkins, Github, JIRA
  • Agile/Scrum

We believe interviewing is a two way street. It's a way for us to get to know you and your skills, and also a way for you to learn more about the team, our technical challenges, and what you'd be working on. The content of each interview round will be tailored to the role and your background, but the general framework can be found here:

We want to ensure you can put your best foot forward throughout the process, so if you have any questions or need any accommodations to be successful, please let us know!

We have a lot of opportunities to choose from in Engineering, and it is important to us that your skills and experience align best with the team you are interviewing with.
