Bloomberg Indices provides proprietary indices for market participants to measure, analyse and invest in global financial markets across industry sectors, asset classes and strategies. Building on the wealth of financial data in the Bloomberg dataset, clients will be able to construct new index strategies, examine and back-test index membership, performance and characteristics, and monitor index levels in real-time.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced Software Engineer to join a new team we’re building in London. You’ll stretch your technical skills and grow your business knowledge – as you create a fast and reliable index production process management system that keeps track of parallel processes, dependencies and validation points required to create and publish Bloomberg Indices.

  • Be an enthusiastic Agile practitioner, helping us to improve and refine our approach to ensure we deliver quality indices in a predictable manner

You'll need to have:

  • Significant experience with JavaScript and front-end development
  • Deep understanding of object-oriented design, data structures and algorithms
  • An aptitude for analytical and creative problem solving and an ability to quickly get down into the detail of complex issues
  • A self-starter’s attitude
  • Willingness to both collaborate and work independently as part of a highly agile team
  • First class communication and interpersonal skills for daily interaction with the business stakeholders
  • Exposure to all phases of SDLC

We'd also love to see:
