Bloomberg systems are known to be fast and reliable; we're the team that makes it possible. We build middleware - the software infrastructure designed to create large-scale, fault-tolerant applications that run on thousands of machines throughout the world. We’re two dozen programmers building a complex infrastructure using a variety of programming paradigms such as RPC, publish/subscribe and message queues. Our end users are engineers, who have different needs from each other, and we’re trusted to make architectural decisions that will scale across a wide range of use cases. With thousands of clients depending on our infrastructure solutions, we're looking to grow our SRE team. That’s where you come in.
Our application frameworks run on tens of thousands of machines and are used every day by over 5,000 engineers, so your work will have an impact across the entire organization. You’ll be trusted to define the processes that will make the system as reliable, high volume, high performance, high throughput, low latency and scalable as possible, with self-healing characteristics. On any given day, you'll make decisions that impact some of the most critical systems at Bloomberg.
Our infrastructure is built to automate deployment and operations using Chef; developed and open sourced at https://github.com/bloomberg/chef-bcpc and https://github.com/bloomberg/nginx-cookbook. We’re passionate about automtion and collaborative development both within the company and with the wider open source community so we’re looking for like-minded individuals to join our team.
