Careers at Bloomberg

New York, NY

Posted Mar 8, 2018 - Requisition No. 65639

At the heart of our business at Bloomberg is connecting decision makers to business and financial information, trading analytics, news and insight. As our industry has evolved, the way our clients consume that data has changed. Today our large enterprise clients demand tight integration of Bloomberg products with their own highly complex and time-sensitive back end systems.

The Bloomberg Connectivity & Integration Solutions (CIS) group is changing the way our Enterprise clients connect and integrate with Bloomberg by building an Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) offering, giving clients a flexible generic tool to self-service their needs. We engineer technology for high throughput and low-latency secure data transfer over a distributed cloud-based infrastructure. We allow our users to provision and get analytics over their integration suite with Bloomberg products, accessible through a single system available online ( and in the Bloomberg Terminal. This is an area that is growing rapidly. With ever increasing demands for more capabilities in data transformation and analytics, we are building out an architecture using a combination of third-party and open-source technologies to meet these demands.
