As gatekeepers of the Bloomberg brand, we provide exciting experiences to Bloomberg clients, vendors and visitors, along with direct impact on the productivity of 20,000 employees globally that interact with our systems on a daily basis. 

As a core component of Internal Apps Engineering, our ubiquitous presence is realized throughout Bloomberg offices in domains ranging from location and space management, facilities management, event execution, project/task management, site maintenance/audits, time sheet billing, emergency procedures, appointment scheduling, room reservation, occupancy utilization, audio/video conferencing and software asset management. Some of our systems such as APPT are critical to the enterprise with nearly 100,000 hits a day.

The team uses a wide range of technologies for desktop and mobile platforms with full-stack development in both Windows and Linux environments. We believe in “right tool for the right job” philosophy and are comfortable experimenting with new technologies. We develop rich user interfaces (using JavaScript, Typescript, Node.js and React), powerful middleware (using Python, C# .NET and .NET Core), and high-performance databases (using SQL Server and PostgreSQL). Team members contribute to all SDLC phases, ranging from requirements through release, utilizing Agile software development methodology.
