Senior Software Engineer- Workflow Orchestration
New York, NY
Posted Aug 2, 2022 - Requisition No. 105430
Senior Software Engineer: Workflow Orchestration
The mission of the workflow orchestration team is to provide a multi-tenant, observable, and highly available infrastructure to address the need across Bloomberg to run repeatable and explainable workflows, backed by Kubernetes! Across the organization, infrastructure and application teams need this type of orchestration for a multitude of operations, including machine learning pipelines, data ingestion pipelines, infrastructure management workflows, source code build workflows, etc.
This is a young platform, so you will have opportunities to design and develop many fundamental components across several languages and technologies! We primarily work with Kubernetes and Golang, with a sizable amount of Python and ReactJS as well.
In line with our mission, highlights from our current roadmap include creating a highly available Kubernetes infrastructure with workflows federated across multiple clusters and automated disaster recovery; supporting event-driven workflows across technologies like Kafka, S3, etc.; enriching our React-based user interfaces; and Docker image security. We also work with many infrastructure teams such as the Data Science Platform, Database Services and Infrastructure, AI, and source code management to provide a great integration experience.
Our team makes extensive use of open-source projects (e.g. Kubernetes, Buildpacks, Argo, Kyverno) and is involved in many of their communities. We collaborate widely with the industry, contribute back to the open source projects, and even present at conferences. We also are active members of inner-source projects at Bloomberg, contributing to cloud-agnostic software infrastructure components across the organization.
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 current and prospective users of our platform to understand their requirements and shape our roadmap
- Be an active part of translating those requirements into intuitive designs for our platform to facilitate our users to focus on solving business problems
- Interact with other Bloomberg application and infrastructure teams to coordinate and contribute to common solutions used across the organization beyond Workflow Orchestration
- Innovate and design full-stack solutions that keep in mind strict production SLA: efficiency, multi-tenancy, high availability, reliability across clusters/data centers, etc.
- Implement those solutions by contributing to an ever-expanding codebase applying modern paradigms and frameworks
- Identify feature gaps in the technologies we utilize and work with the open source community to co-design and co-develop features
- Troubleshoot and debug run-time issues
You'll need to have:
- Passion for developing and supporting modern software infrastructure
- Experience working with full-stack systems, from core infrastructure to UI
- Experience working in multi-tenant platform engineering
- A strong understanding of and interest in distributed systems
- Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms
- Strong problem solving and communication skills
- BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related technology field
We'd love to see:
- Accepted contributions to open source projects
- Experience with Kubernetes and its broader ecosystem (custom resources, prometheus, service mesh etc.)
- Experience building high quality user interfaces in ReactJS
- Experience with workflow orchestration tools such as Argo, Airflow, Nifi, or Tekton
