New York, NY
Posted Jun 30, 2021 - Requisition No. 91127
Teams in Enterprise Content group build products that enable clients to comply with market Regulations, offer them various analytics associated with Investments & Liquidity Risk and also provide them variety of Reference Datasets to satisfy their security and entity data needs. Across our teams, we deal with tremendous amounts of data pertaining to a variety of asset classes. We acquire and cache hundreds of millions of data points that feed our proprietary algorithms and/or quant models to eventually produce output for over 30+ million instruments. To achieve this, we utilize our robust infrastructure that utilizes a distributed set of machines, a wide range of open source tools and our proprietary Rules Evaluation Framework.
The Rules Evaluation Framework allows users to codify business logic into ‘rules’ that can then be ‘evaluated’. This framework gets used in a variety of ways and some of these use cases are as follows:
- Categorizing millions of financial instruments into ‘cohorts’ based on similarities in their respective characteristics
- Validating and/or filtering out bad data before being fed into processes further in the data processing pipelines
- Generating reports and/or triggering alarms after evaluating Quality Check (QC) rules
- Helping identify parameters to quantitative models that could differ based on financial instruments being processed
Due to the versatility and benefits of the framework, it is utilized by many teams across Bloomberg and is a very critical component within their workflows. We continue to enhance this framework and build new feature sets to cater to ever evolving complexities of our products.
