Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Nov 13, 2017 - Requisition No. 63269

You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a pretty daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications platforms.

On the Bloomberg Vault team, you’ll help us build a new petabyte scale object store to manage long-term archiving of communication, collaboration, and financial transaction data in a geo-distributed, reliable, scalable, and regulatory-compliant way. Nearly 1,000 organizations use Bloomberg Vault to manage and archive a range of enterprise communications and collaboration data, including email, instant message (IM), mobile, files, trade and documents, voice data and social media. Our multi-tenant cloud processes 300 million messages daily and stores about 90 billion archived objects and we are looking to grow significantly in the next two years. That’s where you come in. You will be a senior member of our team who is up for the challenge of building secure, scalable and high quality services using a combination of proprietary and open source components.

You’ll need to have:

  • A BS/BA in Computer Science/Computer Engineering or comparable experience
  • 4+ years of experience with Java or Scala and the ability to pick up new languages quickly
  • Experience building large-scale distributed systems
  • Excellent problem solving and multi-tasking skills with a creative and flexible attitude

We’d love to see:

  • Experience with storage infrastructures such as NFS, HDFS and Cassandra
  • Familiarity with data presentation, analytics, and visualization
  • Experience working with data distributed across large data storage clusters

If you're excited by these challenges, passionate about community-driven development and have a flexible, creative approach to problem solving, we want to talk to you! Submit an application and learn more about Bloomberg Vault at
