On our team, you will learn about state-of-the-art large-scale development infrastructure, work with field experts, and get insight into the heart of Bloomberg's financial engine.

We’re currently in the process of optimizing, scaling, and automating our build system and processes surrounding it. The project will involve development of automation tools for our build system, migration of a large codebase to CMake, adding build cache support, and generally executing ideas on shrinking the feedback loop developers currently face in our development system.

  • You’ll develop expertise in Jenkins, CMake, git, C++ build troubleshooting, and Python.
  • You'll have the opportunity to extend our existing infrastructure. This will include modifying or developing code using CMake, Python, and frameworks of the Jenkins ecosystems.

We'll trust you to:

  • Complete projects that required significant engineering skills and the ability to work with a team
  • Work with engineering teams across Ticker Plant and understand their development requirements and usage patterns
  • Be willing to tackle new challenges, learn new technologies quickly

You’ll need to have:

  • Ability to work with CMake, Jenkins, and Python is essential.
  • Ability to communicate/interact with internal engineers to learn systems is essential.
  • Basic familiarity with C++ and its compilation process on UNIX/Linux platforms.
  • Aptitude for writing scripts to automate repetitive tasks.

We'd love to see:

  • Full-Time work experience with C or C++
  • Familiarity with SCons
  • System admin experience
  • Experience with Git

We are extremely proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a real passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world.
