Our Team:

Bloomberg runs on data. As the Data Warehouse / Business Intelligence team for the firm, our data captures the who, what, when, where and why of everything about Bloomberg - from everything about our clients, to their use of Bloomberg products, to our ticketing systems, to information about the hardware in our data centers and client locations. We are responsible for ingesting and preparing massive amounts of data (4 Petabytes and growing) to empower the whole company to make a difference through reporting, dashboards, self-service and advanced analytics. The data is used to drive new businesses within Bloomberg by providing new insights. Our goal is to have a direct or indirect hand in every decision Bloomberg makes!

Our team is constantly looking for the next big thing in Big Data technology that can help improve our analytics pipelines, improve developer productivity, and make our offerings as user-friendly as possible.

  • Experience with the Hadoop Ecosystem (HDFS, Oozie, Hive, etc) 
  • Experience with different Data Storage technologies such as Hadoop, S3, and Relational Database Systems (PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc) with understanding of the internal design and implementation
  • Experience working with structured (Parquet, Avro, Orc, Protocol Buffers) and unstructured data (CSV, JSON)
  • Familiarity with Apache Spark
  •  A Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, similar field of study or equivalent work experience

We'd love to see:

  • A passion for learning, standardization, style guides and process efficiency, and bias for action
