ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) refers to the three broad categories used in evaluating the sustainability and associated potential financial performance of a company. With a changing world and a growing generation of socially responsible investors, ESG data and research analytics are increasingly crucial for our clients -- by providing deeper intelligence than conventional financial analysis alone. By better understanding ESG factors such as climate change, regulatory pressures, importance of human capital and diversity, clients can gain insight into the potential direction of a company, industry, or market. Bloomberg Impact report https://www.bloomberg.com/impact highlights how Bloomberg is pioneering the way in ESG.

To address these challenges and to grow this initiative, Bloomberg is looking to expand the ESG quantitative engineering team to work closely with a diverse set of groups including ESG product, ESG quant research, ESG data, and ESG engineering team to build new ESG scoring and related data-intensive products. As investor interest in ESG continues to increase, with the market for ESG data expected to swell to $2.54 billion by 2031, the team has a great opportunity to innovate and build a suite of products for our clients. We are looking for candidates passionate about the opportunities to develop and deploy quantitative solutions geared towards sustainable finance on Bloomberg platforms. As Bloomberg continues to expand the breadth and complexity of ESG datasets it ingests, we are constantly faced with challenges around advancing the quantitative solutions to keep them efficient, scalable, and operational.

You’ll need to have:
