Posted Dec 15, 2022 - Requisition No. 112435

Bloomberg runs on data. It's our business and our product. Using the power of technology, we connect the world’s decision makers to accurate information on the financial markets – and help them make faster, intelligent decisions.

Finance is changing, and fast; Jupyter and Python are becoming the de-facto toolset for financial professionals. We're building a new product from scratch to open up our data, core products and visualizations to data scientists, ML researchers, and quantitative modelers. Customers will be able to deploy BQuant pre-configured on their own premises, or buy it as a service from Bloomberg which is hosted on cloud. Our mission for BQuant is to “democratize the industry by providing every participant with sophisticated quantitative tools that are currently only available to large banks and hedge funds”.

As a Cloud Solution Architect, you’ll work hand in hand with customers to guide them through each phase of the implementation. Beginning during presales, you’ll explain the benefits of the solution and develop a collaborative vision for how BQuant can empower customers. During implementation, you’ll ensure customers successfully implement the solution and help them troubleshoot along the way. Finally, post handoff, you’ll be there to help clients grow their engagement with BQuant and plan ahead for future opportunities.

We’ll trust you to

  • Engage with customers - assess their needs and map out requirements for their BQuant Enterprise integration
  • Design solutions with BQuant Enterprise at the center - develop a plan to incorporate BQuant’s rich functionality for data analysis and machine learning into customer’s existing cloud environments
  • Implement BQuant Enterprise - work with account managers to successfully handle deliverables and communicate status to relevant partners
  • Address implementation issues head on - applying a wide range of resources and a network of peers to ensure customer satisfaction
  • Identify new opportunities - work with sales and product teams to develop new use cases that build on BQuant Enterprise
  • Provide post-sales support - be an advocate for your customers and ensure they are consistently impressed by the level of support and engagement around BQuant Enterprise

You’ll need to have

  • Experience with an object-oriented programming language (C/C++, Python, Java, etc.)
  • A Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, similar field of study or equivalent work experience
  • Demonstrated experience in a software delivery role, with a customer approach.
  • Excellent knowledge and experience with AWS, Azure and other public cloud vendors
  • Experience with command-line scripting and ability to work in a Linux environment
  • Understanding of VMs, containers, and networking
  • Experience in a Kubernetes-based deployment environment
  • With this being an engineering role with a strong customer facing component, you’ll have a balance of customer-savvy and technical skills, as well as a collaborative, get-it-done spirit

We’d love to see

  • Prior experience working in financial services
  • Consulting experience or experience in another customer-facing role
