Our product:

Instant Bloomberg (IB) is Bloomberg's instant messaging system, which is used by the Bloomberg community for real-time communication including exchanging quotes, trade ideas, news and other financial information. Our users rely on IB because of its stability, real-time performance and tight integration with many applications on the Bloomberg Terminal, which makes IB a vital part of their day-to-day financial workflows.

Our team:

The main focus of our team is developing features that address the unique needs of our customers and differentiate IB from other chat applications. In addition, we put a lot of effort into improving our tools and practices around testing, continuous integration and performance profiling.

We use data to drive our decision-making, whether it be to decide between feature implementations, to motivate engineering-led product proposals, or to plan sprints. You will be a great fit for the team if you prefer an empirical approach to software development, formulating and validating hypotheses using data such as performance statistics, end-user usage metrics or capacity limits.

– Develop and maintain new client facing features using TypeScript, Javascript and Python
– Work closely with our clients, business representatives and UX partners to seek requirements and implement creative solutions
– Collaborate with other teams and departments to develop new full-stack workflows

You'll need to have:

– Strong knowledge of Asynchronous Javascript 
– Strong knowledge of application architecture and design patterns
– Interest in mentoring others and sharing knowledge
– A passion for testing, rapid iteration and collaborative problem solving

We'd love to see:

– Experience with TypeScript or similar compile-to-JS typed languages
– Experience with Python or C++ programming 
– Experience in working with large codebases 
– Interest in improving tools and processes 
– Interest in building chat products and / or your ideas for improving them

You will use:

  • Javascript, TypeScript
  • Python, C++
  • Jenkins, Github, JIRA
  • Agile/Scrum

If this sounds like you, apply!
