Posted Feb 3, 2021 - Requisition No. 88645

***Please note this is a contract position***

Bloomberg is changing the government and legal tech sector by delivering the most sophisticated research platforms on the market with a focus on automation, analytics and real-time answers. Our goal is to become an indispensable tool for our clients by supporting their day-to-day tasks and providing solutions that help them get real-time answers and better serve their companies. Our app is served up through a modern JavaScript front-end, which talks to Rails, which talks to our core search engine and dozens of micro-services. We’re looking for a Senior Web Engineer to focus on the Rails and front-end applications.
This consultant role will be a member of our engineering team who will contribute in building solutions to evolve the core Rails application into well-encapsulated components, which can be incorporated/reused across modern micro-frontend applications, and help in improving scalability and time to market of various features on the platform.
You will need to have:

  • 3+ years of experience building large-scale, client-facing web applications, using Rails.
  • Expertise in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and browser inconsistencies. We use Vue extensively, but if you are fluent in React, Angular, etc., that’s cool too. The front-end ecosystem is complex and evolving, so rather than expertise in a certain framework, we’re looking for someone who knows the fundamentals of browsers, CSS, and vanilla JavaScript.
  • A passion for testing (we use RSpec, Chai, Sinon, Jest).
  • A deep understanding of modern web applications and issues related to scale, security, availability, performance, cross-browser compatibility, and continuous deployment.
    Bloomberg is an equal opportunities employer, and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
