Senior C++ Software Engineer - Directory Product

Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Apr 21, 2017 - Requisition No. 58181

The most valuable commodity in the financial world is still an individual’s personal network and relationships. Getting the right data on those you work and trade with has become increasingly difficult with multiple conflicting sources and ever more strict regulation governing who you can and can’t talk to. The directory team has been tasked with ordering the glut of personal data to help our clients become more productive and assist them in staying on the right side of regulation.

Directory systems take in numerous sources of data and use computational models to remove conflicts and produce the most accurate results. It gives Bloomberg’s application teams the tools they need to best serve our clients. Storing data on individuals is a highly sensitive business, we take great care to ensure that the systems we build are secure and ensure that only those with the correct privileges can access the data we keep.

We are a new and growing team working on a brand new system. As such, we enjoy a great deal of freedom in both design and implementation. Where possible we embrace open source solutions and always try to use the best tool for the job.

We'll trust you to:

  • Help set the direction to design and build this system - from the underlying infrastructure to our rules engine
  • Learn how financial players are compartmentalized including the various divisions, roles, and asset classes they support
  • Collaborate with team members to work on distributed technologies and contribute to the full stack

You'll need to have:

  • 3+ years experience writing C++ code in a production environment
  • An interest in learning about and using new technologies, as we work with a diverse technical stack (SOLR, Redis, RabbitMQ, HDFS, proprietary toolkits)

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with categorization, classification, search, or social networking systems
  • Experience working on large scale online infrastructure
  • Experience with secure systems
