At Bloomberg, our products are fuelled by powerful information. We combine data and context to paint the whole picture for our clients, around the clock – from around the world. Our Data department is responsible for delivering reported and derived data, news, and analytics through innovative technology - quickly and accurately.
The importance of human capital, compensation structures, and diversity are critical factors global investors consider to best identify risks and opportunities. ESG data is crucial for our clients – providing deeper intelligence than conventional financial analysis. At Bloomberg, ESG data is displayed alongside fundamental data, backed by news for context, and used to power a growing suite of Sustainable Finance products.
As a team, we are responsible for reporting and enhancing ESG-related content for the Bloomberg Terminal and Enterprise products, including company-reported and normalised metrics, industry-specific metrics, proprietary ESG scores, and the Gender-Equality Index (GEI). Joining the Data department means that you are a part of one of the world's leading sources of data, providing accurate, immediate insights for financial market professionals. Business leaders rely on the real-time financial information available on the Bloomberg Professional Service, and your passion and expertise will have a tremendous impact on our growing product offering.
