New York, NY
Posted Feb 18, 2021 - Requisition No. 88929
What is our culture?
Bloomberg is the world's primary distributor of financial data and a top news provider. Our customers around the world rely on us to deliver accurate, real-time business and market information that helps them make important financial decisions. At Bloomberg, we are guided by four core values that are the foundation of our continued success: innovation, collaboration, customer service and doing the right thing.
At Bloomberg, you'll have the opportunity to go above and beyond and to take risks. You'll be a part of an organization that is entering new markets, launching new ventures, and pushing boundaries. Our ever-expanding array of technology, data, news, and media services fosters innovation and empowers clients -- and offers limitless opportunities for career growth.
What is Desktop Build?
The Desktop Build Group works closely with Bloomberg's Sales and Product departments to increase clients' dependency on our terminal by creating desktop and enterprise level solutions. Historically, our offerings revolved around our Excel APIs, but now the team is leaning towards a more powerful product: a Python interactive application sharing platform combining a programmatic language with Bloomberg data. On top of building customized solutions for our clients, DBG influences the course of the product suite and meets with major market players in finance to gather insights on ways to enhance our offering. Projects the team works on are varied, and are designed to capture market share from our competitors. This is accomplished by migrating client workflows to Bloomberg and by building bespoke solutions to fill specific product gaps in the Terminal.
