It spans a wide gamut of functionality, from visualizing financial data using graphing and mapping functionality to real-time data alerting to historical trend analysis, backtesting, geospatial analysis and much more. Bloomberg Professional™ provides an immensely popular platform for visual and quantitative analysis of data sets through a host of Bloomberg Applications, widgets and mission critical real-time services. Outside of the visual space, we develop methodologies that enable our customers to estimate the geographical impact of various events on their physical assets and compute the resulting financial exposure. Our services cater to a broad spectrum of users with more than 100+ million daily views and we're looking for new members to work on some of our most exciting and challenging projects.
