Posted Aug 15, 2021 - Requisition No. 93237

Our team is part the Trading and Analytics department within Bloomberg Engineering, which consists of more than 150 teams with 1400+ software engineers. We build the applications and infrastructure on which our clients rely every day to manage their orders, executions and positions. New features are added continually and validating that both the new and existing features work as intended is a vital task for every application development team.

We are responsible for the automation platforms used by the application teams to create and run those validations. As well as simulating user behaviour across complex, multi-application workflows, the application teams also use our platforms to validate the performance of specific applications, both at the individual UI component level and for systems integration. These automated validations are deployed and scheduled on dev, beta and production environments both using dedicated virtual and physical machines.

The strategic goals of the team include:

  • Ensuring our primary customer, the Trading application development teams, have the best experience with the automation platforms, including:
  • Fast onboarding for application developers to validate new systems with our platforms
  • Providing transparency and reporting tools for Product Owners within those teams
  • Appropriate tools and guidance for QA within those teams
  • Ensuring the platforms are able to talk to the latest Bloomberg proprietary and standards-based UI (predominantly JavaScript) and middleware technologies.
  • Redesign and replace legacy aspects of the platforms with modular, reusable components to allow rapid new configurations for different user groups
  • Support teams with bootstrapping and maintaining their own staging environments (typically managed VMs)
  • Promoting the adoption of BDD practice and tools across Trading & Analytics

You'll need to have:

  • Professional experience of .Net desktop development and SQL
  • Ability to learn Python and Javascript/Typescript. We provide extensive technical training from both external and internal self-paced courses, so you will have everything you need to get ramped up!
  • Good communication skills, to be able to work with different stakeholders such as other developers, QA teams, product owners

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with any of Javascript/Typescript or Python and working with Linux
  • Success in full-lifecycle development of tools or APIs for use by other engineers or internal customers
  • Experience of UI automation frameworks
  • Experience in a team using BDD methodologies to capture acceptance criteria in Gherkin (or equivalent)
