The Team:

Bloomberg’s Data Science Platform was established to support development efforts around data-driven science, machine learning, and business analytics. The proprietary solution aims to provide scalable compute, specialized hardware and first-class support for a variety of workloads such as Pytorch, Spark, Tensorflow and Jupyter. This was developed to provide a standard set of tooling for addressing the Model Development Life Cycle from experimentation and training to inference. It provides sophisticated features such as Hyperparameter Tuning as a Service and is beginning to invest in Model Management and Governance. This is built using containerization, container orchestration and cloud architecture and built on top of 100% open source foundations.

As distributed model training, continual learning, data exploration and analysis advance, so do the needs of the compute solutions. Our solution is poised for continued growth to accommodate the endless number of products across Bloomberg that rely on a robust compute environment. Highlights from our upcoming roadmap focus on creating a highly scaled and performant compute service that abstract away common requirements that appear across many use cases, including creating a highly available federation layer for batch jobs such as training and spark, increasing compute resource (CPU, Memory, GPU) usage efficiency and visibility, enhancing the training experience and integrating with public cloud.

That’s where you come in. As a member of the multi-disciplinary Data Science Platform team, you’ll have the opportunity to make key technical decisions. You will make extensive use of open source (e.g. Kubernetes, Buildpack, Kubeflow, Pytorch Tensorflow, Jupyter etc.) and is deeply involved in a number of communities. We collaborate widely with the industry, contribute back to the open source projects, and even present at conferences. While working on these solutions, the backbone for many of Bloomberg's up and coming products, you will collaborate with other engineers across the firm and learn about the technology that delivers products from the news to financial instruments.

If you are a software engineer who is passionate about building resilient, highly available infrastructure and seamless, usable full stack solutions, we'd like to talk to you about an opening on our team.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Interact with Data Engineers and ML experts to understand their workflows and requirements to inform the next set of features for Platform Services
  • Provide GPU management solution to enhance distributed training performance and resource usage efficiency
  • Enhance user experience using main stream and internal training frameworks
  • Design seamless workflows from model training to model inference
  • Solve and debug user issues
  • Provide operational and user facing documentation
  • Provide performance analysis and capacity planning for clusters

You'll need to have:

  • 4+ years of programming experience with an object-oriented programming language (Go, Python, C++, Java, or JavaScript)
  • A degree in Computer Science, Engineering or similar field of study or equivalent work experience
  • Experience with distributed systems eg. Kubernetes, Kafka, Zookeeper, Spark
  • Experience with mainstream machine learning frameworks such as Pytorch and Tensorflow
  • Experience building and scaling Docker-based systems using Kubernetes, Swarm or Mesos
  • Have a strong sense of curiosity to solve new problems and keep learning new technologies

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with ML infrastructure open source such as Kubeflow, Triton, MLFlow, Feast
  • Knowledge of authentication & authorization systems such as Spiffe and Spire
  • Experience with cloud providers such as AWS, GCP or Azure
  • Experience with configuration management systems (Chef, Puppet, Ansible, or Salt)
  • Experience with continuous integration tools and technologies (Jenkins, Git, Chat-ops)
  • Experience with data encryption
  • Experience working with GPU compute software and hardware
  • Ability to identify and perform OS and hardware-level optimizations
