Do you ever wonder how a hedge fund makes money? Or what tools a portfolio manager uses to rebalance their portfolios against complex mathematical models and benchmarks? Are you curious about the ins and outs of a fund manager's workflow? If so, keep reading. Our team needs people like you.

The AIM (Asset & Investment Manager) Engineering team builds software for all Bloomberg-supported asset classes (equity, fixed income, swaps, commodities, options) for hundreds of institutional firms with more than $15 trillion in assets. When hedge fund managers are using our applications, they have mere seconds to absorb the information on the screen and make critical decisions that move the financial markets around the world. As you can imagine, scale, speed and usability are our primary concerns while developing software.

What’s in it for you?

As developers, we don't like to be boxed in to specific roles. For example, even if you consider yourself a front-end developer, there are plenty of opportunities here to work on and learn about middleware and back-end systems. We take pride in owning the end-to-end development of our software stack.What makes this job great is not only the opportunity to work on tough problems with smart engineers, but also the exposure you'll get to Product Managers, clients, salespeople and other Engineering teams. This unique combination will give you a comprehensive view of key concepts and inner workings of the financial industry.

You need to have:

  • 4+ years of front-end or back-end development experience in Javascript
  • Experience with full-stack software development
  • Working knowledge of asynchronous programming techniques
  • Solid understanding of modern application architecture and design patterns
  • Familiarity with continuous integration, continuous deployment and testing best practices.

We'd love to see:

  • 2+ years of experience designing and building workflows and UIs
  • Experience with Node.js or other server-side JavaScript implementations
  • Familiarity with C++, Java, C# or other modern object-oriented languages
  • Experience programming in Python or other interpreted languages
  • A working knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems
