BAS is the stable, fault-tolerant, scalable microservice framework used by over 5,500 Bloomberg software engineers as the foundation of their applications.

We follow industry-wide best practices including continuous integration/release/deployment, in-depth code reviews, static analysis, consensus-based decision making, engineering discipline, and top notch standards for source code (C++ and otherwise).

We also have a strong culture of mentorship, professional growth, and inclusive communication within the team. The BAS team is additionally a great way to get plugged into many of Bloomberg's collaborative efforts, as we're heavily involved in the C++ Guild (an internal meetup group), ISO C++ Standardization, and C++ conferences.

  • 3+ years programming in Python
  • An understanding of object-oriented design, data structures, and algorithms
