Careers at Bloomberg


Posted Aug 16, 2016 - Requisition No. 53510

The Bloomberg Professional Service is Bloomberg's flagship product. The part that clients see comprises a suite of sophisticated software that runs on the desktop, allowing financial professionals to access real-time data, news and analytics.

This software is updated and enhanced regularly, requiring an efficient build, test and deployment system. We are looking to enhance our existing solution for this to unify multiple processes into a single, fully-automated, flexible solution.

To help us do this, we are looking for a build engineer who can help design and create a solution from the ground up. As we use Git and Jenkins for our existing CI system, we’re looking to use these technologies for this project. Upon completion of this project, you will continue to work as an SRE or software engineer. You can influence your own career.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Collaborate with multiple teams to understand and improve the release process for different types of software
  • Build the infrastructure to automate the build / sign / packaging / distribution processes
  • Maintain and extend our Continuous Integration system, adding new features for comprehensive automated testing
  • Influence strategic decisions concerning future build environments and release processes

You’ll need to have:

  • A thorough understanding of building large software packages
  • Knowledge of Windows installers and packaging software
  • Hands-on knowledge of C++
  • Experience of scripting languages, e.g. Python
  • Background in Automated Testing tools and methodologies
  • Experience of an agile development environment

We’d love to see:

  • You know your way around Jenkins and GIT
  • You know how complex systems environments work
  • Knowledge of Windows and UNIX at the command line
