Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Aug 9, 2017 - Requisition No. 60004

The Bloomberg Sell-Side Execution and Order Management Solution (SSEOMS) is an Equity order management and trading system. We are in the midst of a major renovation and expansion to new markets to meet the high throughput and availability demands of our clients.

We are looking for a hands-on Engineer to work in the Site Reliability Engineering team to drive the design, implementation, and support of the next-generation build and deployment solution for our software. You will work closely with our software application teams to create new code deployment workflows, automate processes, and improve source control and configuration management systems. We’ll expect you to influence decisions and priorities regarding the creation and maintenance of such systems, including continuous build and integration systems and establishment of best practice development standards and guidelines. You'll need to be collaborative and hands-on, someone who likes to work in the trenches and can lead strategic projects to improve our SDLC.

We’re looking for aptitude and interests rather than specific skills but you should have:

  • Experience with scripting languages such as Python or Perl in a UNIX environment
  • An interest in continuous delivery and a demonstrated familiarity with some of the tools of the trade such as Jenkins, Chef, Docker, Github or Ansible
  • Familiarity with a source control system such as git, subversion or perforce.
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Ability to communicate clearly

We’d love to see:

  • Hands on C++ development experience and familiarity with Makefiles
  • Understanding of SQL and relational databases
