Posted Feb 10, 2021 - Requisition No. 88755

The world's largest financial institutions require vast amounts of data to help their clients manage their portfolios execute their trades and analyze the markets. Bloomberg Enterprise Data provides these institutions a platform to make hundreds of thousands of requests for data spanning the full range of the financial industry each day. Supporting this translates to billions of data points that flow through our system daily, including Equities, Commodities, Bonds, Pricing, Corporate Actions, Regulatory and Reference Data ( To meet the demand, the Data License department is responsible for gathering, transforming, and delivering all the data our clients request through a distributed workflow platform, microservices, and web integrations. We are looking for software engineers to join us.

The Data License Delivery teams focus on the interfaces to our clients, including our website, REST API and cloud-native services. Our website ( is built on a React/node.js frontend with a Python/Flask on the backend. The REST API uses linked data concepts and open standards such as RDF/CSVW that allows our clients to understand how our data is connected. Our backend utilizes Python, RabbitMQ, Celery and Kafka to handle the large data workflows that drive our business. We are also continuing to expand to cloud services such as AWS to allow clients to quickly adopt these technologies directly.

This role will be a good fit if you’re interested in designing complex workflows in code, building robust microservices, building tools to transform data in a fast-evolving market environment, and scaling distributed architectures to handle massive data pipelines.

You'll need to have:

  • 5+ years of experience in software development writing object-oriented code in a high level programming language, designing large-scale applications, and writing high-quality tests
  • Experience with, or an interest to work in Python
  • Demonstrated ability to complete projects that required significant problem solving, communication skills, and the ability to collaborate with multiple teams in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to learn new skills and technologies and adapt quickly

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with languages such as C++, Java, C#, Javascript and/or Python
  • Experience working with low-latency, high-volume, and highly-availability distributed systems including deployment, monitoring, and building robust fault-tolerant systems
  • Developing software in a Linux environment
  • Proficiency with development tools such as debuggers and memory profilers
  • Experience with application monitoring tools or services
  • Experience in an agile or iterative software development process
  • Contributions to Open Source projects
  • BA, BS, MS, PHD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technical field

At Bloomberg we are extremely proud of our diverse, open, and inclusive culture. We value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a real passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of financial institutions and decision makers around the world.

If this sounds like you, please apply!
