Our customers around the world rely on us to deliver accurate, real-time business and market information that helps them make important financial decisions. At Bloomberg, we are guided by four core values that are the foundation of our continued success: innovation, collaboration, customer service and doing the right thing.
We harness the power of data and analytics to organize, understand and improve our world. It's our purpose. Come find yours.

The Team:

The Desktop Build Group is a team which works very closely with Bloomberg's Sales and Product departments to help in increasing our clients' dependency on our product by creating desktop solutions revolving primarily around our Python/Excel APIs. Projects the team work on include assisting our clients in transitioning their worksheets from competitor-linked products to Bloomberg data, building sophisticated financial models that allow our clients to gain an edge in the markets as well as collaborating with Product Development to drive product enhancements.

The Role:

In this role you will have the opportunity to be involved in various aspects of the team, mainly working on developing new internal automation and collaboration tools to improve the efficiency of the team and have a direct impact on the way we can support Bloomberg clients. Candidates will get first-hand experience in working in a supportive, dynamic, global team and experience how widely used Excel/ Python financial models are created and deployed.
If successful, you may be eligible for a full time position either in this team or on one of our other full time programmes e.g. Engineering, Global Data, Analytics & Sales.
