Senior Software Engineer - Research Events & Corporate Access
New York, NY
Posted Nov 7, 2022 - Requisition No. 111319
Imagine that you are interested in investing in a company using your favorite brokerage account. A critical part of your research will be to figure out how the company has been doing recently, as well as its near-term and longer-term future outlook. This information is usually shared with the wider investment community by the company’s executives via events called Earnings Calls. Investors, traders, and analysts dial in to these calls and pay close attention to what is said during them, so much so that you generally see material price movement leading up to, during, and leading off of the call. Earnings Calls are just one example of a future-looking event that can move a company; there are several other categories including Investor Days, Capital Market Days, etc. It is paramount that investors have seamless access to calendar data leading up to the event (i.e. when and what time these events are scheduled, how to dial in, etc.) as well as resources generated during and after the event (e.g. audio/text livestreams, transcripts, presentations, etc.) so that they may update and reconsider their current and potential investments. However, it is time-consuming and tedious to curate all this data into an easy-to-consume format for the large number of companies in their portfolios or watchlists.
This is where Bloomberg steps in to help our investment community out. The Bloomberg Events & Corporate Access team provides quick access to calendar and resource data for over 130k companies all across the globe. This data consists of 6M+ future-looking market-moving events across tens of key event categories that investors care about. Our direct-to-consumer product offering is used 60k+ times daily by over 20k clients, while our multi-channel data distribution infrastructure consistently serves up over 100M api requests per day. And we have significant plans to scale our product suite up to more and newer client groups, both in terms of the amount of data covered, as well as the breadth and depth of the reach of our data.
What we do:
In order to prepare for the upcoming product growth, we are embarking on a multi-pronged roadmap that involves overhauling our data ingestion and storage infrastructure to better handle larger volumes of data of different types; redesigning/rewriting our data distribution infrastructure and APIs to provide optimized and scalable access to the vast amount of data we maintain; and modernizing our front-end application stack by utilizing open source frameworks such as React, TypeScript, and Node.
