Senior JavaScript/UI Developer - Trading Systems

Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Dec 7, 2017 - Requisition No. 63757

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 the UI.

As developers, we don't like to be boxed in to specific roles. For example, if you consider yourself a front end developer, there are opportunities here to learn more about the 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.

You need to have:

  • 4+ years of experience designing and building workflows and UIs
  • Knowledge of asynchronous JavaScript
  • Experience with efficient client-side development
  • An understanding of application architecture and design patterns
  • Experience or interest in the full software development life cycle

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with Node.js
  • Familiarity with C++ or other object-oriented languages
  • Experience programming in Python or other interpreted languages
  • A working knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems
  • Experience with Agile software development
