Posted May 31, 2017 - Requisition No. 58776
You’re the type of person who not only enjoys the challenge of being a leader for driven software engineers of high ability, but also delving in to the lower-level technical world yourself. You will have a passion for both of these areas, and in doing so provide support to developers in each of them.
The Ticker Plant is part of the Bloomberg core infra-structure, so the position requires a high level of responsibility and technical aptitude. The Ticker Plant product itself is a propriety intra-day tick database. It processes and stores market data, with exchange feed and data-source specific business rules, for the entire company; this encompasses the main Bloomberg terminal and also enterprise products such as Bpipe(RDP) and Data Licence. This data is made available via both static server requests and real-time publish/subscribe streams. The software itself is highly scalable and distributed amongst hundreds of large servers, having one of the largest hardware budgets in Bloomberg for a single product.
The London team is specifically responsible for the critical path that a tick takes through Ticker Plant and its associated infra-structure, along with the little-endian Linux port and a dedicated special ops sub-team (using Agile) for delivering high-priority projects.
For the right candidate, this is a rare opportunity to be a leader in one of the most core and essential components of the company. Therefore, as well as motivating and developing the team members, it also provides exposure to technical challenges and opportunities to still remain hands-on, if the candidate so desires.
