On our team, you will learn about state-of-the-art large-scale development infrastructure, work with field experts, and get insight into the heart of Bloomberg's financial engine.

We'll trust you to:

  • Complete projects that required significant communication skills and the ability to work with a team
  • Collaboratively document tasks consistent with industry standards, project specific design principles and frameworks
  • Work with engineering and product teams across Bloomberg and understand their application requirements and data access patterns
  • Be willing to tackle new challenges, learn new technologies quickly

You’ll need to have:

  • Ability to communicate/interact with internal engineers to learn systems is essential.
  • Ability to write technical documentation on systems and processes is essential.
  • Basic familiarity with C++, its compilation process, and solving linker errors on UNIX/Linux platforms.

We'd love to see:

  • Full-Time work experience with C or C++
  • Familiarity with CMake
  • System admin experience
  • Experience with Git and Jenkins pipelines

We are extremely proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. We're looking for engineers with a real passion for writing reusable, efficient solutions to complex problems, who can adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, and who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world.
