What is Enterprise Data?

What is the Role?

Motivated by increasingly sophisticated competition or cost savings, data science and machine learning have become a critical aspect of our customers’ business strategies. Bloomberg wants to be the leader in analysis ready data that allows clients to focus on the business of creating advanced analytics solutions rather than data ingestion and normalization.
You will play a meaningful role in helping customers and Bloomberg, together, achieve success.

We'll Trust you to:
- Lead deep technical discussions with customers, vendor partners, and Bloomberg colleagues from Product, Sales, Quant -Research & Development, Engineering, and Client Services.
- Serve as subject matter experts in demonstrating advanced data science workflows and technologies for capital markets use cases.
- Engage with customers as part of their solution creation team.
- Confidently make recommendations (based on standard methodologies) to customers and partners.
- Develop collateral including tutorials, sample code, reference implementations, and presentations that will be used by data science practitioners as well as executive decision makers.
- Provide feedback to Product, Quant, and Engineering teams to help shape product strategy and execution roadmap.
- Balance hands on work with a desire to keep up with trends.
What do I need to apply?

- Understanding of capital markets, banking, asset management, and/or the trade lifecycle.
- Extensive knowledge of leading open source data analysis tools and machine learning libraries.

- End-to-end knowledge of the data science problem, including large scale data and data pipeline management.
- Proficiency with crafting technical documentation and presentations (white-board, small team, broad audience).
- Entrepreneurial mindset and comfortable to work in a non-hierarchical, large global organization where interaction with senior management is required.
- Passion for consistent learning.
- Ability to travel
- Advanced knowledge of AWS, GCP, and/or Azure data science and machine learning services
