The Team:

In the Software Security Platform group, our mission is to continuously improve Bloomberg’s security posture by building foundational services and libraries that enable zero-trust application architectures! Our work involves addressing security issues and problems in highly available, low latency distributed systems.

The systems we build are used to secure every interaction our clients have with Bloomberg’s applications and APIs! Our clients trust us with large volumes of critical data every day, and our libraries and services are used to encrypt and protect it. We therefore pay phenomenal attention not only to security, but also to scalability and performance.

The Cryptographic Hardware Services team is entrusted with maintaining Bloomberg’s most critical cryptographic key material. Protecting the ‘keys to the kingdom’ requires we employ both innovative equipment and industry standard methodology procedures. We’re investing in this team to create a scalable solution for providing hardware-based cryptographic services to many more of the software solutions across Bloomberg. This solution will require a multi-disciplinary team for engineering components as well as automating and performing well-drilled operations.

The Role:

As the leader of this team you will be trusted to bring both team management skills, and hands-on systems software engineering to our organization. You will be responsible for soliciting requirements from team members, guiding engineering work, designing operational procedures that meet regulatory requirements and organizing a 24/7/365 on-call rotation among your team. This is a great opportunity to create and grow a new team that will play a key role in keeping our platform secure as it continues to grow over the coming years.

You'll need to have:

  • 5+ years of experience in engineering 
  • 2+ years in leadership, managing and coaching globally distributed teams and influencing third party technology strategy
  • A Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, similar field of study or equivalent work experience

  • Deep understanding of X.509 and certificate management processes involved in maintaining a Public Key Infrastructure

We'd love to see:

  • Experience working with many internal partner teams and/or providing a product as-a-Service to other engineering teams
