Every day, the biggest players in the financial industry depend on Bloomberg applications to manage their portfolios, execute their trades and analyse the markets. As engineers, we’re building the applications our clients rely on to not just stay informed, but stay ahead of the market. The applications and infrastructure we build embody the speed, agility and financial data that make Bloomberg the go-to solution for financial professionals across the globe.
To make sure we satisfy our clients’ need for speed as well as stability, we have very high standards for reliability and scalability. And that’s where our SREs come in!
We are a new SRE team who believes that solving the technology challenges is just one piece of the puzzle, and that having stable and reliable systems is critical to our success. Our platform distributes and analyses trading data for some of our most critical clients who rely on our systems to trade in an environment where down-time can have significant financial consequences. As a new team, we are also focused on partnering with stakeholders across engineering and product to ensure that performance and reliability are always part of the conversation. This year, our projects span from instrumenting our distribution infrastructure to monitor the key service level indicators that reflect user expectations, analysing such metrics with a big-data approach to identify the next bottleneck, to the utilisation of such tracing data for producing tooling to navigate complex debugging workflows within our distributed systems.
We’ll expect you to be passionate about using the right tool for the job and setting best practices for SRE methodologies and tools, and excited by the idea of helping us build this new team from the ground up as well as a desire to drive change by promoting a reliability focused approach. This is a great opportunity for us to not just improve the current system, but also create a solid foundation for our engineers to continue building new and innovative products.
