About Enterprise Solutions:

Bloomberg Enterprise Solutions (ES) is experiencing a prolonged period of unprecedented growth. Our Data and Technology solutions focus upon the acquisition, organisation and distribution of data around financial firms.

Product Management Team:

In this role you will be working with the Bloomberg Enterprise Solutions Product Management Team. We are constantly improving our products, to make them more feature rich and application ready, whilst reducing the total cost of ownership.

Product Managers have a high level of business, communication, and technology skills, so that they can create working prototypes, specify Engineering tasks, and work effectively with Sales and Clients.

The Role:

We wish to enhance our Data and Technology solutions by hiring an experienced Financial Data Architect, who is familiar with specifying and using large structured data models and data sets to solve complex business demands and meet regulatory requirements.

In this exciting role you will design, specify, and create prototypes of large and varied data models and data sets, both financial and non-financial, using a wide range of tools, methods and platforms.

We expect you to evaluate areas of interest, understand what is possible and commercially viable, recognise which models and concepts should be applied, and how the data resources should be acquired. An open, creative approach is critical to your success.

You will design data for diverse addressable markets, explore and work with a wide range of data, and apply existing methods or develop new methods. You will also engage in data analysis in a practical way, convince business leaders that your results are worth investing in and educate other analysts and business team members.

Most critically, you will deliver the output of your data design to business users (both non-technical and technical). You will be a key person in shaping the product offering and the customer experience.

What’s in it for you:

  • An influential business role within a fast growing area
  • Broad scope to design and specify commercially attractive products
  • The opportunity to grow your business and technology skills

We’ll trust you to:

  • Understand addressable markets
  • Evaluate what is possible and viable
  • Take responsibility for the Data Architecture of multiple data sets
  • Work with Engineering, Sales, and Clients

You need to have:

  • Bachelor or Masters Degree in Mathematics, Computer Science or related discipline
  • Experience with large, diverse data sets, and the tools to handle them
  • Knowledge of large structured data models, such as FIX and ISDA FpML
  • Experience in working with Global Teams, across Sales, Technology, and Operations
  • The ability to address multiple priorities in an extremely fast-paced environment

We’d love to see:

  • Knowledge of Market Data and Reference Data
  • Progamming skills in languages such as “R”, Python and Scala
  • Proficiency in Data Science tools and methods
  • Track record of using Agile and Kanban methodologies
  • A working knowledge of financial markets, securities and derivatives, in all major liquid asset classes
