Our team: 

We are a team of engineers helping engineers: using our tools, everyone should deliver their best work. We are not afraid to invest deeply in our own infrastructure covering all stages of development, testing, and deployment. We also work with Jenkins, Debian Package, GitHub Enterprise, SonarQube, Phabricator, and build anything we need to fill gaps and join them together. Beyond helping thousands of Bloomberg developers, you’ll join a global community of engineers innovating with open source technologies. In London, our SRE team’s primary focus is to provide source control, review and collaboration platforms to allow the rest of Engineering to work as effectively as possible.
