The world is accelerating every day, and Bloomberg strives to stay a step ahead of it. We are searching for engineers to help us design and implement tools that allow us to be the first to put market-moving news in front of financial players.

Three teams work together towards our shared mission under the Breaking News Applications umbrella: News Gathering, Cyborg, and Breaking News Tools.

The Cyborg team creates applications that merge the power of machine learning and the intuition of our expert journalists, enabling them to cover thousands of companies. The Breaking News Tools team develops real-time monitoring applications. These tools allow the Newsroom to find accurate and relevant data in the ocean of news today and create market-moving content. The breadth of the challenges we face sets us apart from other Bloomberg teams and keeps us engaged and passionate about our work. These challenges drive us to stay open to new ideas and innovations, ensuring that we build the best solutions.

On any team in Breaking News Applications, you'll have the opportunity to use many different technologies and work on a wide array of engaging projects and complex problems. Our backends are written in C++, Python, and Java, and our front-ends are in Javascript, Typescript, and C#. We leverage popular open-source tools such as Redis, Apache Kafka, Apache Flink, and many more. We’re proud of our collaborative team environment where your views, opinions, and contributions will help shape our products from day one and have a long-standing impact. A unique aspect of our team is that we work alongside our users, the Newsroom. This direct line of communication enables us to stay nimble and immediately see the impact of our work. If you're passionate about software design, excited to learn new things, and determined to do the right thing the first time, then Breaking News Applications is the place to be.
