Software Engineer - Portfolio Analytics (Lugano)
Posted Apr 23, 2021 - Requisition No. 90371
Bloomberg Portfolio Analytics (PORT) empowers the most prominent players in the financial world to manage their investment portfolios, analyzing hundreds of indicators on millions of data points, to ultimately make decisions that move the markets.
We partner with both clients and engineers across the globe (New York, London, Lugano, San Francisco, and Singapore) to refine requirements and provide suitable data models. We collaborate on challenging problems like creating a scalable framework for performing advanced mathematical calculations, dynamically fetching and transforming data-cubes with hundreds of gigabytes of data in real-time, automatically validating close to 100 billion data points every night, providing an API to over 200 different applications made available to our clients and massively delivering excel/pdf reports through a batch reporting system.
You’ll have a chance to grow your technical skills on distributed systems written in a variety of languages and technologies: C++, C#, Python and Java core components, a sophisticated orchestration framework and a mix of Bloomberg and open-source technologies such as Jupyter notebooks, Apache Spark, Arrow, Kafka and Cassandra. As owners of a critical system, we use monitoring technologies such as Splunk, Humio, Grafana as well as python based data science analytics to validate our numbers.
Our team follows Agile-methodologies, and we are working on fully implementing a continuous integration and delivery process.
Who are you?
We are starting a large redesign effort to transition one of our core systems from a monolithic architecture to a highly-scalable distributed architecture. If you are motivated to help us complete this highly creative and collaborative effort, you are the right person for this role!

- Embrace working together as a team – mentoring and learning from your existing teammates to break knowledge silos and ensure that our team is producing reliable, well documented and well-understood products for our clients.
You'll need to have:
- Programming experience in one of these languages: C, C++, C#, Java or Python
- Solid verbal and written communication skills
