Posted Jul 3, 2017 - Requisition No. 59283
Every single day, over 4000 developers (and counting) rely on us to build the core foundation required for their applications. We build libraries that touch a wide range of technologies. This includes programmable real-time data-processing pipelines, crypto services and development tools. We are technologists who live and breathe high-performance, well-factored, scalable, testable code which can mould quickly to new business initiatives.
We sit right at the heart of all of our real-time software for high impact systems that are the core of the Bloomberg infrastructure. We process market data from around the world, driving the majority of downstream Bloomberg applications. We address the market demand for low-latency solutions by delivering the world's most reliable, timely and accurate financial data.
As an engineer within Software Infrastructure, you're valued as technical expert and a go-to resource throughout the company. Our users, as well as our leaders, are highly technical people. It's both interesting and stimulating to have other engineers as your customers.
As a member of the Application Frameworks team, you will be designing and enhancing the programmable high-performance data-processing pipeline that forms the backbone to all real-time market data analytic functionality in the Bloomberg Terminal - a framework used by our colleagues across the entire Engineering Department to write responsive, sophisticated applications.
We are a team of technologists, engineers, evangelists and trainers charged with helping our engineers deliver their best work. We are not afraid to make large investments to build our own tools to outpace the competition.
At the moment we work with Phabricator, Jenkins, DPKG, GitHub Enterprise, Coverity, Jira and anything that fills gaps and joins them together. Join us and you will help thousands of engineers, both inside the company and out as we love open source.
Our team is responsible for financial and news based data services. Our fast-growing event driven feed business provides real-time news and analytics to trading desks of major financial institutions. Performance and resilience is critical.
We need your skills in developing scalable and robust software to address growing demand for this data. You will be joining a team with expertise in real-time distribution and strong financial domain knowledge. You will develop software using the open Bloomberg BLPAPI and gain experience using open source projects to manage big data sets. We are looking for an engineer who embraces modern programming practices.
Come work in our agile and forward thinking team to develop interesting and effective products.
As an engineer in the Feeds SRE & Ops team, you will be responsible for driving standardization across the 1000+ global exchange data parsers developed in feeds. You will make architectural decisions that will ensure that parsers behave in a consistent manner. This will involve prototyping solutions, creating and documenting the standards required of the parsers and creation of supporting tools and automated test suites to help ensure the quick adoption of the new standards.
You will need to have the ability to get a consensus across the feeds engineers, the ability to develop high quality code and the ability to propose architectural solutions, not to mention a keen eye for detail.
We provide the framework that is used by the 1000+ feed-handler applications for the company's real-time market data. Our components need to be robust, of high quality and re-usable and we leverage solid development practices and principles to achieve this.
We need a keen attention to detail, design and quality. Join a high-calibre team of creative thinkers striving to provide a quality feed-handler infrastructure for the company.
We are responsible for Bloomberg's data distribution infrastructure, which is the largest in the world, providing low-latency market-data and value added Bloomberg data via our open API (http://www.bloomberglabs.com/api/).
We support scalable, distributed, high-performance software that provides mission-critical data delivery to all Bloomberg desktop customers and a large number of enterprise-level applications. The team in London has two big areas of responsibility within this infrastructure, Market data distribution and processing & Infrastructure services.
We build real-time systems that process market data from hundreds of exchanges around the world. This translates to our infrastructure receiving billions of ticks a day across all financial asset classes. Resilience, performance, latency & accuracy are key drivers in the development of our code, as our clients rely on our data to make decisions involving millions of dollars.
Our projects are driven by changes in technology, regulations and the market and what we do is core to the Bloomberg business. We are continuously growing and evolving our infrastructure to make it a state of the art distributed real-time data processing system capable of responding to our clients.
You will collaborate with various teams but have full responsibility for the software you build. The changes you will make to the system will reach the clients almost immediately. If you are excited by this challenge, come join us and let’s make a difference together.
We're engineers who enjoy building services and distributed systems that are crucial to the Bloomberg products, with stringent demands on scalability, availability, resiliency and security. Our work ranges from building core libraries and services in C++11, to integrating open source technologies and delivering them as scalable services to thousands of internal engineers.
Areas we care about include secret distribution, PKI, session management, distributed caching using Redis, RabbitMQ based persistent message queuing and high-volume low-latency market data distribution.
If you're a passionate and tenacious engineer with strong problem solving skills, we would love to talk to you.
We are extremely proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world.
