Posted Oct 7, 2022 - Requisition No. 102458

Bloomberg’s Data Science Platform was established to support development efforts around data-driven science, machine learning, and business analytics. The platform aims to provide scalable compute, specialized hardware and first-class support for a variety of workloads such as Pytorch, Spark, Tensorflow and Jupyter. The platform was developed to provide a standard set of tooling for addressing the Model Development Life Cycle from experimentation and training to inference. It provides advanced features such as Hyperparameter Tuning as a Service and is beginning to invest in Model Management and Governance. The platform is built leveraging containerization, container orchestration and cloud architecture and built on top of 100% open source foundations.

As the needs of distributed model training, continual learning, data exploration and analysis advance, so do the needs of the compute platform that underscore it. Our platform is poised for continued growth to accommodate the endless number of products across Bloomberg that rely on a robust compute environment. Highlights from our upcoming roadmap focus on creating a highly scaled and performant compute platform that abstract away common requirements that appear across many use cases, including creating a highly available federation layer for batch jobs such as training and spark, increasing compute resource (CPU, Memory, GPU) usage efficiency and visibility, enhancing the training experience and integrating with public cloud.

That’s where you come in. As a member of the multi-disciplinary Data Science Platform team, you’ll have the opportunity to make key technical decisions to keep this platform moving forward. Our team makes extensive use of open source (e.g. Kubernetes, Buildpack, Kubeflow, Pytorch Tensorflow, Jupyter etc.) and is deeply involved in a number of communities. We collaborate widely with the industry, contribute back to the open source projects, and even present at conferences. While working on the platform, the backbone for many of Bloomberg's up and coming products, you will have the opportunity to meet engineers across the company and learn about the technology that delivers products from the news to financial instruments. If you are a software engineer who is passionate about building resilient, highly available infrastructure and seamless, usable full stack solutions, we'd like to talk to you about an opening on our team.
