It's continuously being developed and improved by about 6,000 engineers that are experts in their field. Our team is part of a group of engineers who create the software toolbox for application teams at Bloomberg.

The Bloomberg Terminal is a modern JavaScript based application. Implemented using a combination of open-source software such as Chromium, V8 and NodeJS as well as our own software implemented in TypeScript and C++.

As we evolve the technology behind the Bloomberg Terminal we face the issue of how to automate the user interface to imitate human users. We want to do this to provide for creating tutorials, assure the quality of our software and adequately test for errors and regressions, as well as permit error reproduction. We're looking for an engineer with a passion for creating the tools to make engineering life easier and improving the workflow of their peers and themselves.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Develop the fundamental tools to automate the Terminal
  • Work with TypeScript, C++, C#, Gherkin and more
  • Work with Chromium/Webkit via the Chrome Devtools Protocol
  • Implement a Chrome Devtools Protocol service
  • Open the Terminal to be automated via existing OSS solutions
  • Be on the cutting edge of shaping the developer experience

You’ll need to have:

  • Demonstrated experience working with an object-oriented programming language (C/C++, Python, Java, etc.)
  • JavaScript/TypeScript development experience at scale (preferably Electron or Node.js)
  • A Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, similar field of study or equivalent work experience
