Senior Software Engineer - Message-Oriented Middleware
New York, NY
Posted May 29, 2019 - Requisition No. 75327
The Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) team builds some of the most critical application frameworks at Bloomberg, used every day by thousands of engineers.
- BMQ (Bloomberg Message Queues) - a clustered queue based messaging solution for Bloomberg providing high performance and high-reliability. BMQ significantly outperforms popular open source MQ systems and is designed with high resiliency at the core.
- DMP (Data Mapping) - a high-performance pub/sub system for real-time data models, used by a large number of functions in the Bloomberg Terminal (instant messaging, market data, etc.).
- MBUS (Message Bus) - a very-high-performance, low-latency pub/sub system used by hundreds of server-side applications including many mission-critical systems. MBUS uses a combination of TCP, UDP and multicast (PGM) and scales up to millions of messages per second on a typical Linux box.
Together they form a software infrastructure designed for creating large-scale, fault-tolerant applications that run on thousands of machines throughout the world. With many clients depending on our infrastructure solutions, we are looking to grow the MOM team.
