Team Lead - App Frameworks Functions
New York, NY
Posted May 16, 2022 - Requisition No. 95670
The App Frameworks Functions team is responsible for building and advancing the core set of tools that engineers within Bloomberg depend on to deploy, observe, and troubleshoot their own Terminal applications.
We also build a suite of tools used by both Engineering and our client-facing technical support teams to help diagnose client’s technical issues and gain insights into the overall landscape of our client environments. Our technology comprises full stack applications using React, TypeScript, and latest application best-practices, open source middleware such as Redis and Kafka, and both SQL and NoSQL databases.
In addition to applications, we own the backend crash event aggregation infrastructure that is integrated to consume crash reports from various layers of Bloomberg’s application and backend infrastructure across both client and server, and powers the reporting, alerting, and analytics seen in our suite of diagnostic tools.
Our team is focused on helping to define best-in-class standards for application development on the Terminal, and we work closely with both our peer teams and the broader Bloomberg Engineering community to understand the needs and workflows of our developers. In partnership with a UX counterpart and technical product owner, team members are empowered to take ownership of the team’s products and help define the features and integrations that best enable our users to solve problems and get their jobs done.
