New York, NY

Posted May 31, 2022 - Requisition No. 101700

The Product Documentation Engineering team believes our content should be written once and read everywhere.  We strive to make Bloomberg documentation available to all our clients on whatever platform they’re on.  Help us build the tools to make this vision a reality.

Our Content is read by thousands of Bloomberg users on a daily basis.  You will get a chance to work on a function seen by 150,000 daily users when they login and a feature promotion tool that has driven a 40% increase in feature adoption.  We are now taking these products from within the Bloomberg terminal and making them available on the web, mobile, and anywhere else clients interact with Bloomberg.

Given the wide variety of content types and structure that we support, we’re rearchitecting our system to allow for more reusable and consistent content as well as self-service support for our application teams. This initiative requires us to work with our business to rethink our data model and content writing workflow. This also means we will rearchitect everything from our database structure, our backend services, our UI screens, and write brand new screens and services to support the new paradigm.

As a team member, you will have the opportunity to participate in our end-to-end workflow: requirements gathering, working closely with our business partners, architecting solutions, and implementing and releasing the final product. The team mostly focuses on Python and Javascript, with some occasional C++ and C#.

As part of this team, we'll trust you to:

  • Be the owner of the product – you will work closely with the business to build a strong product
  • Be a solid team player- you can expect to work with others in a highly, collaborative environment
  • Be innovative - you'll think outside of the box when coming up with technical solutions that deliver business value
  • Be passionate- you're passionate about our diverse set of users and product
  • Be proactive- you'll contribute ideas on everything from UI, product, tech stack and our development flow

You'll need to have:

  • 3+ years of professional experience in a strongly-typed object-oriented language
  • 3+ years of professional experience with a relational SQL database
  • Professional experience working in a Linux/Unix environment
  • Strong analytical and creative problem solving skills
  • BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technology field

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with web development
  • Experience with CI/CD (Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery) and helping product teams in implementing and maintaining those tools
