Bloomberg runs on data.

The team is comprised of several groups focused on: Pricing, Research, Exchanges, Product Development, Contracts, and Market Structure.

The Role:

We are on the hunt for a unique professional who will lead a team to develop and implement new and innovative data acquisition strategies. Over the years our company has created a vast library of data sources for our customers to access. But we’re not satisfied. We believe there are still untapped resources in the market when it comes to data sets that could help investors make more informed decisions. In this role you will help define and roll out new strategies to identify potential content sources, validate their data, and help create a scalable onboarding approach.

You will have an opportunity to use your in-depth understanding of financial markets and investment life cycles to design new strategies for Bloomberg's data acquisition. You'll know how the buy-side sources content and be able to apply your knowledge of the big data landscape and technology to really move the needle for us across both structured and unstructured data. In addition, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with other product designers and business areas within the company to create these new solutions.

You'll need to have:

  • 8+ years of professional industry experience and knowledge of data sourcing and distribution products and solutions
  • Demonstrated ability to use data analysis to identify financial market opportunities
  • A visionary approach with experience developing and implementing new strategies
  • Experience delivering data driven solutions with an ability to extract insights from them
  • Ability to build partnerships with cross-functional teams and facilitate interactions with engineering, sales, product and support
  • Ability to execute a business plan while remaining responsive to changing conditions
  • Ability to lead multiple projects at the same time and shift priorities quickly
  • Effective written and verbal communication skills

We’d love to see:

  • Prior experience working with R&D/engineering teams to develop, test and release new products
  • Previous collaboration with data scientists
  • Experience formulating investment strategies
  • Experience selling in some capacity
