Front End Developer - Latency Monitoring

Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Apr 8, 2016 - Requisition No. 49392

You are an engineer who enjoys finding ways to extract and display meaningful information from large data sets. You enjoy working with low-latency, high throughput systems and are comfortable thinking about the distance between two cities in both miles and milliseconds. You are interested in using open-source technologies, but if it doesn't exist, you're happy to build it.

If that sounds like you, then consider working on the Latency Monitoring System. We're building a system from scratch to explore the latency of market data delivery on Bloomberg's global network. You'll be involved from the beginning, designing visualizations that help both developers and business departments understand how data flows through our system and where we can improve. We're looking for someone who can own the display portion of the system from web reports to interactive analytics. You'll work with a small, flexible team on identifying how applications behave under load, which applications can be improved and where the bottlenecks are.

We'll trust you to:

  • Own the frontend architecture of the new latency monitoring system
  • Quickly deliver high quality ReactJS code
  • Effectively roll out new features using an Agile methodology
  • Work with a small team on all parts of the system from data capture to display
  • Participate with the team in analyzing the latency data, finding bottlenecks and proposing solutions

You need to have:

  • 4+ years of professional experience with JavaScript development
  • 2+ years of development with a web frontend framework such as Angular
  • Experience with GitHub and a solid understanding of core concepts with Git
  • Familiarity with Linux
  • A solid understanding of basic statistics and core computer science concepts

We'd love to see:

  • Prior experience working with trading or market data
  • Knowledge of R, Pandas or NumPy
  • Python or C++ development experience
