Our system provides leading data visualizations, trading tools and user interfaces that allow traders to focus on execution quality and market-moving events. On our team you'll have the chance to reimagine, develop and deploy a product that thousands of traders rely on every day across Bloomberg’s various trading platforms.

Our software stack allows us to execute JavaScript directly on the client-side and use industry standard tools like Es6/Babel, TypeScript, and Gulp. We are one of the few teams doing this in the entire company, and we need strong engineers to help us.

You'll need to have:

  • 3+ years of experience programming in JavaScript
  • A desire to work hand-in-hand with our user experience and visual design teams to create a cutting-edge platform that will put us ahead of the competition

We’d love to see:
