Connectivity & Integration Solutions - Integration Support Analyst

Careers at Bloomberg


Posted Dec 12, 2016 - Requisition No. 56116

Financial firms rely on dozens of critical systems to develop and execute strategies, evaluate risk, track P&L, manage sales and trading, and handle settlement. The constant challenge is the complexity of integrating these systems so that data moves correctly across the enterprise, at higher speeds and lower costs. Building solutions in-house can take a large team and a larger investment. Integrators and consultants may not understand a firm’s business model or data. That’s where we come in.

Here at Bloomberg Connectivity and Integration Services (CIS), we help firms manage that complexity. Providing common tools, services and expertise, we enable firms to simplify technology relationships, which ultimately drives lower total cost of ownership, faster time to market and improved transparency. With our track record in delivering hosted solutions and our understanding of our customers’ needs, we believe we are uniquely positions to help clients with this challenge.

  • Ensure a smooth client life cycle experience, from project implementation to production support
  • Achieve targets and metrics with clients (Generate leads, assist in closing add-on sales and tangibly reduce support costs)
  • Understand key competitors or alternatives and successfully protecting against displacements

Where can the role take me?
