Posted Apr 22, 2022 - Requisition No. 102862

You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications and trading platforms.

That’s where Bloomberg Compliance comes in. Composed of both Bloomberg Vault Archive and Bloomberg Surveillance, Bloomberg Compliance provides a single platform for compliant storage and reconstruction of our customer’s communication, collaboration, and financial transaction data. More than 1,000 organizations use our product to manage and archive their enterprise communications and collaboration data, including email, instant message (IM), mobile, files, trade and documents, voice data and social media. Our multi-tenant cloud processes millions of messages daily and stores billions of archived objects, and we are looking to grow significantly in the next two years.

We are working on an ambitious initiative to create a unified, integrated application that brings together all Vault compliance and surveillance functionality in a single platform. To that end we are in the process of modernizing our technology stack, utilizing open source frameworks such as React and TypeScript. In conjunction we are redesigning and rewriting our server-side APIs using Java and GraphQL on a modern infrastructure to provide optimized and scalable access to the vast amount of data we maintain.

As part of our team, you will be trusted to:

  • Build and maintain microservices on a newly renovated technology platform that help clients effectively manage surveillance workflows 
  • Combine big data with real time processing to deliver a new Analytics platform that will help us deliver advanced visualizations to clients
  • Work very closely with our clients and business representatives to seek requirements and implement creative solutions
  • Collaborate with our other core and application teams to develop full-stack solutions
  • Drive and balance the incorporation of new technologies while improving development practices
  • Mentor others by encouraging collaboration and knowledge sharing

You’ll need to have:

  • 3+ years of experience in software development
  • Passion for building robust, scalable, and maintainable applications and infrastructure
  • Strong knowledge and experience with Java or a similar Object oriented programming language
  • Experience or interest in learning Javascript 
  • Strong knowledge of application architecture and design patterns
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field, and/or related professional experience

We’d love to see:

  • Track record of improving the developer experience by promoting Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery
  • Experience with frontend open source application frameworks (TypeScript, React, Redux, etc.)
  • Experience building and maintaining microservice architectures 
  • Experience with backend open source processing systems like RabbitMQ, Kafka, Spark, etc.
