  • Administer training to clients for coding to our API during the pre-sale, implementation and adoption phases of an engagement
  • Support the developer community around Bloomberg's data delivery mechanisms
  • Provide timely and informative feedback to the Enterprise Data Product teams
  • Take ownership of complex questions and issues reported by clients as a second tier of technical support via phone calls, ticket systems, email, and in person

You’ll need to have:

  • The ability to communicate complex information to a wide range of skill levels both in verbal and written form
  • Excellent analysis and problem solving skills

  • Experience with database querying languages such as SQL, NoSQL or similar
  • Knowledge of financial markets and levels of urgency for critical data needs
  • Exposure to modular designs with a focus on reliability and scalability.

What’s it like to work here?

We work hard. We are ambitious and set ourselves tough business goals. We are a meritocracy where everyone has a voice - not a job title. Working with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with is more important than titles or position. Things move fast, and we want people who will enjoy working in this environment and feed off the energy. But it isn’t all about work. Giving back is one of our core values, and there are many ways to get involved in philanthropic initiatives from helping local school kids with their reading to helping clean up local parks and waterways.
