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.
