Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Nov 7, 2017 - Requisition No. 63138

We are building the next generation of the Bloomberg Customer Service Center (CSC). The Bloomberg CSC is a web-based, “one-stop shop” portal that customers use to place new orders, digitally sign contracts, administer exchange entitlements, and manage their suite of Enterprise products. The Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point (BEAP) portal offers a searchable catalog of Bloomberg datasets which includes its metadata and documentation. Datasets will be clean and tidy, machine readable, and made available via modern and fast REST-based delivery channels to the most powerful financial firms in global markets.

Both of these portals leverage modern web technologies and are built to support the high volume of Bloomberg customers 24/7 across the globe. Being a key contributor throughout the entire SDLC, you will have the opportunity to collaborate closely with product owners, business counterparts, and clients to understand their needs. You will be required to think outside the box and bring cutting-edge technologies in house.

Visitor Management System

The Visitor Management System (VMS) is a web-based system to process guests visiting our offices. The system will provide an efficient and user-friendly means for our staff to check-in guests, as well as self-service options. The application will run on desktop computers as well as mobile devices (tablets) and must interact with peripherals such as cameras (webcams, network cameras, mobile device cameras), scanners, and printers.
