Senior Software Engineer - Ticker Plant SamayDB Team
New York, NY
Posted Nov 3, 2021 - Requisition No. 97137
The Ticker Plant system is the core of Bloomberg’s market data infrastructure and is responsible for the storage and distribution of Market Data. Market Data is information -- trades, quotes, and other pricing data -- gathered from around the world on every possible kind of financial instrument, from stocks and bonds to currencies and commodities. In the aggregate, this amounts to over 100 billion events per day and growing all the time.
The SamayDB team in TickerPlant develops a high performance time-series database that is used to store all the Market Data at Bloomberg. This database is uniquely designed and built to be flexible and fast, while still being able to support massive datasets. We provide low latency data storage and retrieval options for high-frequency/high-volume applications. The storage engine hosts several petabytes of data, across hundreds of millions of instruments. The query engine handles ~80 billion queries each day at very high throughputs. Our clients are other engineering teams within TickerPlant and Bloomberg.
To meet the ever increasing market data needs of the future, we are re-architecting core parts of the system. On the storage front, we are building real-time data replication. We are also changing how historical data is archived and delivered. For queries, we are adding client access control, load management, dynamic cluster and data discovery intelligent query routing, and a bulk data query system, with the vision of making the realtime and historical market data available in a cloud compute platform. We are looking for a motivated engineer who can help build TickerPlant’s data storage platform of the future.

- Join a group in the early stages of a major multi-year system re-architecture
