Posted Dec 30, 2022 - Requisition No. 112821

The Developer Experience group (DevX) provides tools, services, infrastructure, workflows and systems to put the 5,000+ engineers at Bloomberg in flow and enable them to write high quality, high performance code. We work with and explore a wide variety of technologies, toolchains and frameworks to ensure our developers are using the best tool for the job. Whether it be development, build, deployment, scanning, linting or continuous integration: the Developer Experience group aims to help improve efficiency, productivity and accuracy across the different engineering groups at Bloomberg.

DevX also plays a crucial role in developer relations and in fostering and supporting an engaged and inclusive community at Bloomberg. Numerous initiatives and groups have formed and grown within engineering to support development and collaboration as well as diversity and inclusion (D&I) across the department. These include BBIT (Bloomberg Black in Technology) and BWIT (Bloomberg Women in Technology). Many members of DevX organise, lead, contribute to and participate in these groups and are always looking for new ways to bring people together around the company and work with our users.

We leverage more tools and open source technologies every year, and our team is expanding to ensure engineers here are well-equipped to take advantage of those tools. That’s where you come in. We regularly contribute to Open Source and maintain a number of projects that you may have seen. Most recently for example, we published Memray, a new open source memory profiler for Python code. We always try and share our learnings, lessons and ideas with the community by Open Sourcing or presenting as much as possible. We also actively participate in Open Source communities to share and learn from others, including the OpenSSF, CNCF and Bazel Remote Execution Working group. 

You’ll need to have:

  • Demonstrated commercial programming experience with Python, C++ or other Object-Oriented languages
  • An undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field  (or equivalent experience)
  • Prior experience building and maintaining tools that are used by developers internally
  • A passion for developer workflows, reliability engineering, and tools that complement a large-scale, multi-language codebase
  • A keen interest in building features that can find and prevent complex bugs and keep our code clean

We’d love to see: 

  • Experience wearing multiple hats from software engineer, reliability engineer to developer advocate and evangelist.
  • A genuine passion for improving the developer experience
