Bloomberg runs on data. It's our business and it's our product. It's why thousands of companies partner with us. We've surpassed petabytes of data, with no end in sight.

Our Team:

We provide the infrastructure that supports core data services including Bloomberg’s Data Science and Machine Learning platform, search infrastructure, and various others. Our challenges span both software and hardware and the scale we work on is massive. 

Our team is responsible for modern cutting edge infrastructure at Bloomberg. We’re depended upon to manage the deployment, configuration, and operation of systems that power the data backend of Bloomberg. On our team, you’ll have the ability to truly innovate and invent, helping define the technical foundations of groundbreaking systems. Using containerization and kubernetes on leading-edge hardware, including GPU's and DNN-specific hardware, we build systems that rival super-computing platforms across the world. 

We’ll trust you to:

  • Design, build, and automate new solutions based on leading containerization orchestration technologies.
  • Be responsible for solutions which maintain configuration and robustness of systems.
  • Analyze performance, metric placement and interpretation, and capacity planning.
  • Troubleshoot and debug runtime issues with software and hardware.
  • Execute OS and hardware level optimizations.
  • Interact with platform developers to understand and validate their workflows, requirements, application performance, and application resilience.

What’s in it for you:

  • An opportunity to make key technical decisions which help define the future of data and analytics infrastructure platforms.
  • The chance to apply your existing experience while gaining cutting edge new experience in kubernetes, containerization, GPU's, Data Science, and distributed database systems.
  • Your solutions will drive new functionality within the Bloomberg Terminal and other client interfaces - direct drivers of financial decisions around the world.

You need to have:

  • 2+ years systems configuration and automation experience (e.g. Ansible, Chef, Puppet, SaltStack -- error handling, idempotency, configuration management).
  • 2+ years Linux systems experience (Ubuntu/Debian experience preferred, ideally conversant in Unix networking and C system calls).
  • Experience in troubleshooting network issues from the host side, and ideally an understanding of container networking technologies.
  • Proven experience in a programming and/or scripting language (e.g. python, go, java, ruby).
  • A strong familiarity with Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment methodologies, chat-ops, etc.
  • Proven experience building and scaling out mission-critical, elastic, load distributed, and high throughput systems.
    We’d love to see:

  • Experience with networking is a plus (e.g. packet analysis, routing protocols).
  • Open Source experience is a plus (a well curated blog, upstream accepted contribution or community presence).
  • Experience with Kubernetes.
  • Private and public cloud experience (OpenStack, AWS, GCP).

How we give back:

This team will make extensive use of Open Source Software. As part of that, we make a commitment to upstreaming features we'll be developing within Kubernetes and its ecosystem. Whether pushing bug-fixes upstream, developing new features, giving presentations at conferences/meetups or collaborating with industry leaders, Open Source will be at the heart of this new team. It's not just something we do in our free time - it is how we work.
