Compute resources is what enables our engineers to provide the necessary power for our global business. Whether it’s virtual instances or physical machines, without them we can not build new applications and support our customers. The Compute Engineering teams designs and maintains virtual platforms and api resources integrating the two. As a Team Lead inside the Compute Engineering area, we would expect you to be proficient in both software and hardware systems, as well as being a thoughtful people leader.

We expect our engineers to design and build a highly available, scalable, and durable compute platform. Our platform is a unique mix of commodity hardware, open-source virtualization, and enterprise virtualization solutions. 

As we scaled we are now in an interesting position to modernize our automation software for provisioning and management of both vendor and open-source virtualization inside of the Bloomberg ecosystem. The Compute Engineering team is active with the open-source community and our engineering users to stay at the forefront of both evolving hardware technologies and software engineering practices. 

What’s in it for you:

You'll work with modern open-source computing platforms while maintaining mission-critical systems hosting a wide array of applications. We'll depend on you to advise on the design, architecture, and scaling of our virtual farms that utilize several different technologies both open and closed source.

-    Inspire and motivate a high-performing team, leading by example while supporting individual growth and development
-    Develop technical solutions that combine hardware and software to achieve required service levels, performance, and economics

You need to have: 

-    Experience managing teams responsible for mission-critical production systems
-    Hands-on software development experience in Python or a similar programming language
-    Develop or integrate rest apis
-    The ability to take ownership and responsibility of issues and handle them effectively to resolution

We'd love to see:

-    Thorough knowledge and experience with data structures and complex production troubleshooting
-    A keen interest in keeping abreast of technological advances and proven success at incorporating new technology into existing systems
