Our team:

We are the CTO Security Architecture group. We solve complex security problems to enable innovative new products, and prototype the next generation of infrastructure security technologies.  Whether we’re designing our next generation security controls, or threat modeling our distributed systems, our goal is to define the future of how we secure Bloomberg’s infrastructure. That’s where you come in.

As a CTO security architect, you’ll be trusted to understand security requirements of our software stack and service oriented architecture, provide guidance for usable infrastructure security, ensure that logical security controls are manageable at our scale, and much more. Your leadership skills will influence the roadmap for future security technologies, while working alongside motivated engineers across the company to keep Bloomberg at the cutting edge. Our team works across many areas of security architecture, and you will have the opportunity to focus on the projects you are passionate about and bring your expertise to help reach our team’s goals.

We'll expect you to:

  • Take a leadership role in defining tools, techniques and technologies used to secure Bloomberg’s infrastructure and systems.
  • Undertake new infrastructure development, guiding teams to appropriate security architectures and modernizing Bloomberg’s system security standards.
  • Foster a culture of security consciousness while understanding the trade-offs between security, usability and performance on a large scale.
  • Help develop strategies to secure Bloomberg’s financial products and network.

You’ll need to have:

  • 5+ years of experience building, maintaining and managing security aspects of large-scale, distributed infrastructure and applications.*
  • Strong experience in Windows systems engineering and automation with an emphasis on security.
  • Demonstrated threat modeling capabilities in networking, infrastructure and applications as they impact the security posture of an organization.
  • A track record of building collaborative relationships with stakeholders across many functions, with a focus on correctness, scalability and usability of distributed infrastructure.
  • Ability to build proof-of-concepts solutions, innovate, and partner with Engineering teams to drive adoption.
  • The experience to know when to build and when to re-use

We'd love to see:

  • Solid knowledge of cryptographic primitives and protocols and how they combine to form secure systems.
  • Experience managing large scale infrastructure with Chef, Ansible, etc.
  • Experience building security controls using OS mechanisms and protocols (eBPF, seccomp, Kerberos, ssh, etc).
  • A track record of performing cutting edge security research.
  • Strong Windows engineering skills including Active Directory, SCCM, Intune, and other key technologies of the Microsoft Ecosystem.
  • Familiarity with WSL, Container technologies including Docker, and Microsoft Exchange.
  • Cloud Engineering experience in Azure and Microsoft SaaS services including Office 365.
  • Experience integrating with and securing a combination of in-house developed and third-party solutions.
