Senior Software Engineer - Engineering Planning & Reporting
New York, NY
Posted Jun 15, 2021 - Requisition No. 88689
What does the team do:
The Engineering Planning & Reporting team supports senior management, and is currently in the midst of a 2+ year evolution of our suite of functions to provide up to the moment views of investment and performance of our businesses across the entire firm. We are responsible for creating and improving systems used firm-wide that provide quality data efficiently, transparently, and on-demand to our most senior leaders at the firm to assist in investment decisions. Together with our business partners, the engineers develop dashboards and automated reporting synthesizing information on the performance of the firm’s businesses, ranging from investments in engineering to business results (e.g., feature adoption, sales, and revenue).
What does the team look like:
Our small team size, coupled with the specific managerial style allows for a start-up feel – reps are entrepreneurial, collaborative across business and engineering peers, and want to brainstorm better ways to report (more efficient coding, more flexible coding for future iterations, more digestible front-end designs to promote self-sufficiency in usage). We are extremely team-oriented and have a vested interest in the product’s success, and in each other’s success. The functions we build serve every business across the firm. Our clients are plan stakeholders from Business Managers, to CFOs, to Salespeople to other Engineering partners and teams.
We are passionate about driving high impact by pushing technological boundaries and cultivating a culture of innovation and creativity. We focus on adopting, integrating with, and building tools necessary to drive the most efficient developer experience with a focus on high reliability, scalability, and maintainability.
What can you expect to do:
In this role, you will have hands-on experience with reporting tools and functions used by the company’s top leaders. You will contribute to the rebuild of the Bloomberg Resource Planning tools, design and enhance full stack solutions.
You are a seasoned developer with strong technical skills and a consistent record of building innovative products. Your goal is to find and build the best solutions to stated problems by understanding customer needs and adoption requirements.

The group’s primary stack is TS/JS front-end, .NET Core and Python microservices/daemons running on Bloomberg Cloud Computing middleware, and PostgreSQL / SOLR / SQL server backend. Our tech stack also includes additional technologies/standards such as Kafka, Rabbit MQ, GraphQL and more.
