Enterprise Technology - Implementation Team Leader EMEA
Posted Jun 28, 2022 - Requisition No. 104875
Who We Are:
In capital markets, buy-side and sell-side professionals strive to achieve automation across multiple asset classes by building strong and secure connections to Bloomberg. Our Enterprise Technology Solutions (ETS) team is responsible for ensuring the implementation, stability, and reliability of the connection network which supports virtually all Bloomberg Enterprise products.
For clients who self-implement, we provide strong technical expertise to ensure they build appropriately. Clients who choose to code against our published specifications to automate their workflows require a strong technology representative at Bloomberg to guide and advise them. System to System automation is becoming increasingly important in the capital markets and our technical implementation teams ensure customers do it correctly. Our implementation teams work with clients, vendors, exchanges, brokers, ATS venues and more. We also ensure optimal performance through internal interaction with Bloomberg Product areas, Network Operations, and Engineering.
We are results-oriented and set ourselves ambitious business goals. We cultivate a culture where you will work with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with and this is regarded as more important than titles or position.
