Bloomberg Ticker Plant builds software that manages the storage and distribution of Market Data in Bloomberg. Market Data is information - trades, quotes, and other pricing data - gathered from around the world on every possible kind of financial instrument, from stocks and bonds to currencies and commodities. This amounts to more than 60 billion unique events per day (and growing all the time) applied to millions of different instruments.
In London, the Ticker Plant Pipeline team is responsible for the critical path that a market data message takes through the Ticker Plant host and its associated infrastructure. The system we develop and maintain is highly performant with emphasis on low and predictable latency, as well as effective utilization of the parallel processing power available on our servers. All of that, while keeping it flexible and simple enough to be deployed and managed across the hundreds of Ticker Plant machines. As a team, we come from diverse backgrounds and experiences that have enabled us to take on cross-functional projects, such Linux porting.
We are looking for a Team Leader who will lead a small team of developers within the larger team and contribute to the technical vision of the Pipeline team and the Ticker Plant as a whole.That’s where you come in!
As a Team Leader of a small software engineering team (about 4 to 7 developers), you will be a contributing software engineer in the team you lead. You’ll be expected to guide and coach your team members on software engineering best practices and industry standards. You'll be encouraged to take risks, meet with stakeholders, and collaborate with other Engineering teams beyond your organization.You will be actively developing and growing individuals through 1-1s discussions, training, mentoring and coaching. You’ll provide the leadership and guidance your team members need to help Bloomberg succeed and support them in their career aspirations. Your unique mix of technical expertise, product management, and people skills will be instrumental in driving the team forward.
This is a great opportunity to be a hands-on technical leader who will develop one of the most core and critical infrastructure components of the Ticker Plant. You’ll gain valuable experience leading a small team of talented engineers, while remaining hands-on, to create the future technology of the Ticker Plant in Bloomberg.
