Financial institutions thrive on data and the Bloomberg Enterprise Content business satisfies their needs. Enterprise Content is a fast growing business that provides clients with rich programmatic access to the best financial data and services in the industry such as Reference, Pricing, Corporate Actions, and Regulatory content sets (https://www.bloomberg.com/professional/product/reference-data/).
Our system delivers a wide range of information on nearly all types of financial instruments including equities, fixed income bond, indices, FX, futures and options. To gather this data, we access hundreds of databases across Bloomberg using distributed systems that utilize multiple processes across hundreds of machines to efficiently process it. You’ll work directly with teams across the company to build highly performant solutions to make data sets available to clients.
The existing means of acquiring data simply doesn’t cut it anymore. The company is shifting away from some of the classic Bloomberg API’s towards various services leveraging different delivery mechanisms such as Bloomberg services, HBase and Kafka queues. To address this need, we will build a data acquisition platform that will allow us to gather data from these various sources across the company and transform them into easily consumable Data License products. Next, we need to properly authorize our data. For this, we will build a rules based system to implement various controls. To orchestrate the various pieces of theses workflows, we require a platform that can scale to meet the ever-growing needs of our product and clients. Building on top of Celery (http://www.celeryproject.org/) and RabbitMQ (https://www.rabbitmq.com/), we build Python workers that can execute discrete units of work, and tie them together in complex workflows.
Our goal is to empower users to be able to quickly create new data products and to reduce the time it takes on the engineering side to build them. These are big goals and we’re just getting started. We’re looking for bright, knowledgeable, driven people to help us make key technical decisions on the architecture, processes, best practices, and direction of this initiative. You will be responsible for the research, development, and stability of this critical platform and its impact on one of the highest revenue businesses within Bloomberg.
We are extremely proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a real passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world. If this sounds like you, please apply below!
