Posted Dec 27, 2022 - Requisition No. 112772

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 daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications and trading platforms. That’s where Bloomberg Compliance comes in. 

We provide a single platform for compliant storage and reconstruction of our customer’s communication, collaboration, and financial transaction data. More than 1,000 organizations use our product to manage and archive their enterprise communications and collaboration data, including email, instant message, 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.

You’ll develop applications that help us define, measure, forecast and improve the reliability of Compliance’s applications and environments.  You’ll drive best practices and transform our deployments by leveraging automation and cloud native computing. You will also work closely with other engineering teams to understand their components and improve the reliability of their applications.
