Bloomberg runs on data. It's our business and it's our product. It's why thousands of companies partner with us. We've surpassed petabytes of data, with no end in sight.

The Security Infrastructure SRE Team is essential for our ability to manage and scale security systems  which support this scale at  Bloomberg.  This team is responsible for a broad set of systems that are essential for our ability to secure the enterprise and protect our client data.  The solutions managed by this team cover a broad range of use cases and are built in collaboration with various stakeholders. To operate at scale, the push is to make provisioning of security infrastructure seamless and repeatable using infrastructure-as-code patterns and using various automation techniques.  The team strives to quantify confidence in the systems they maintain and to drive additional confidence in the systems' ability to perform as expected.  Through thorough monitoring and telemetry collection, the team can use past performance to predicate and understand future reliability.  The team assumes nothing of the systems that they manage unless they are explicitly tested building further confidence in the systems they operate.

The role:
