Posted Nov 19, 2019 - Requisition No. 79787
Bloomberg Portfolio Analytics (PORT) empowers the most prominent players in the financial world to manage their portfolios, assess exposures, and make decisions that move the markets. Our flagship product on the Bloomberg Professional service is a critical tool used daily by money managers, mutual funds, hedge funds, and pension funds around the world. PORT provides industry-leading quantitative financial tools and overnight batch report generation. Our tools enable investment professionals to:
- Understand factors impacting the returns of their portfolio over time
- Monitor intra-day market movements in real-time
- Estimate potential losses under extreme market conditions via stochastic risk analysis to generate new trading ideas.
We partner with both clients and engineers across the globe (NY, London, Switzerland, San Francisco, and Singapore) to refine requirements and provide suitable data models. We work on challenging problems like creating a scalable framework for performing advanced mortgage and derivatives computations using calculators across Bloomberg systems, to dynamically fetching and transforming data-cubes with hundreds of gigabytes of data in real-time, automatically validating almost 100 billion data points every night and providing an API to over 200 different applications across the terminal. Our system is based on multithreaded C++ core services, a sophisticated orchestration framework, and a mix of Bloomberg and Open-source technologies such as Apache Spark, and Cassandra. As owners of a critical system, we use monitoring technologies such as Splunk, GUTS, Grafana and Jupyter notebook. Our team follows Agile-methodology, and we are working on fully implementing a continuous integration and release process.
