The technical recruiting landscape is quite competitive -- we're not the only company looking for top talent. We're constantly striving to identify and engage a larger, more diverse pool of candidates to grow our world class engineering department and build and advance new solutions for the Bloomberg Terminal and our wider suite of products.

  • Screen profiles/resumes and conduct intake calls to better understand candidate background & motivations
  • Pitch sourced (screened) candidates to recruiting team to identify opportunities that are most aligned to candidate skills, interests, and career goals
  • Ensure hiring managers have access to a diverse slate of candidates
  • Always provide a high-touch candidate experience
  • Regularly track pipeline activity to share with internal stakeholders and use data to measure the success and impact of your recruitment efforts
  • Know what is happening in the external market and proactively share this information with the wider recruiting team and internal stakeholders
  • Make at least two hires / month

You’ll need to have:

  • A minimum of 2 years of technical sourcing experience (agency or internal) using Boolean, LinkedIn and other search techniques
  • Deep understanding of technical roles in software engineering (C++, Java, Python, Javascript)
  • A track record of filling engineering roles quickly with highly qualified candidates
  • Proven organizational skills, attention to detail and able to prioritize in an environment with many competing demands
