Posted Sep 21, 2020 - Requisition No. 85757

The Market and Order Data Analytics (MODA) group provides a domain-specific infrastructure for trading systems. We design high-availability services that process tens of millions of trade per day in real-time, and create client-facing applications that improve the trading workflow of our customers. We collaborate closely with our colleagues across Engineering and Product to understand their needs and develop solid, reusable and efficient solutions. Our ecosystem includes critical applications such as the new Cross-Asset blotter, Trading Automation engine and Order Alerting system.
The MOCA team builds APIs in different layers of the system to consume the MODA data points and designs its data model. Our key goals are flexibility and stability. Our API allows access to multi-asset data in a consistent manner in client and server environments.
The MODA Application Framework team is responsible for services that deliver enriched trading and market data to clients, with a focus on high-performance, reliability and ease of troubleshooting. We also build client-facing components to facilitate collaboration between traders.

What's in it for you?

As an engineer in our team, you will have the possibility to work in the financial trading domain using a diverse software stack, ranging from C++17 back-end services to JavaScript ES6/TypeScript components running server-side or client-side. You will be trusted to take ownership of projects and represent the team in discussions with our stakeholders. You will have the opportunity to contribute to architectural decisions that span across multiple teams to scale up our system and evolve our data model to support more asset classes. You will get a chance to exercise your collaboration skills and develop your understanding of the business we operate in. All of this whilst participating in a small Agile Scrum team that works closely together to complete projects.

You'll need to

 - Have experience writing modern, well-tested and robust code (we mostly use C++17 and JavaScript/TypeScript but expertise in a different language is welcome)
 - Be able to solve complex problems independently
 - Be comfortable collaborating across multiple teams to make technical decisions and get things done
 - Demonstrate good design principles and a mindset oriented to creating and developing stable APIs
 - Show a willingness to take full ownership of projects, from the requirements’ definition with our stakeholders to the coordination across teams, to delivery

We would love to see

 - Experience with C++ or JavaScript/TypeScript
 - Experience in developing distributed systems
 - Experience with cross-team project management
 - A desire to learn about how our clients use the data we provide and improve our product offerings

You have the opportunity to join some of the most creative and exciting teams in Bloomberg, making a lasting impact on our product and clients! You will be working on pioneering projects such as building a truly multi-asset Execution Management System, and defining a mechanism to execute calculations on orders coherently both on the client-side and server-side.
