The Security Automation & Tools team, part of Security Engineering, is responsible for Protecting and Securing Bloomberg's production environment, by providing a suite of modern, highly-available, enterprise security tools, which enforce security best-practices and govern and control access within our enterprise.

Our philosophy is to treat infrastructure as code -- we model various access control definitions (such as Firewall Policies, Proxy Rules, sudo and ssh rules, role-account access) in software, and enforce security around how they are connected to each other to support Bloomberg Professional and related services.

What’s in it for you:

This is a unique opportunity to help build robust, high-scale systems which will power the future of Bloomberg's automated security and access-control infrastructure.

  • Encourage, mentor and train junior team members.
  • Practice and promote the use of a modern software development lifecycle 
  • Engage with customers to capture and refine requirements 
  • Autonomously develop technical solutions to achieve objectives and required service levels, performance, and economics
  • Proactively research and follow industry trends, best practices, and open source projects in security engineering

You need to have: 

  • 5+ years experience as a senior software engineer, preferably full stack for a mission-critical production system
  • Expertise in software development in some combination of Go or Python
  • Extensive knowledge in software testing and delivery best practices
  • The ability to take ownership and responsibility of issues and handle them effectively to resolution
  • BA, BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technology field.

We'd love to see: 

  • Contributions to Open Source projects especially related to Automation and Security Engineering.
  • Knowledge in major Python frameworks like Django, Celery and Javascript based front-end frameworks such as React.js
  • Understanding Orchestration and Automation Frameworks, such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet
  • A keen interest in keeping abreast of technological advances and proven success at incorporating new technology into existing systems
  • Knowledge of Linux, networking and system administration
