Provisioning and maintaining tens of thousands of assets in our production compute environment requires large scale automation, and large scale automation depends on data. We’re working to provide this by building a single source of truth for our systems, networks, storage, and security infrastructure. The complete system will be flexible, fast, and easy to integrate with dozens of services which will be automating their operations.

We need you to help drive this initiative forward through hands-on technical leadership within our team.

What’s in it for you:

This is a unique opportunity to build a sophisticated system which will power the future of Bloomberg's automated infrastructure. We’ll trust you to motivate and manage our team by providing a clear technical vision, managing stakeholder expectations, and negotiating to gain access and in many cases, control of available data sources.

We'll trust you to:

  • Lead the development of technical solutions to meet current and future business needs
  • Inspire and motivate a high-performing team to achieve great results, while supporting individual growth and development
  • Understand the best ideas in the industry around Configuration Management Databases (CMDB) and data modeling for IT assets
  • Develop strong partnerships across internal development and business teams
  • Take risks as our fast paced environment will require you to rise to the challenge and strive to exceed expectations

You need to have:

  • 3+ years managing agile development teams, using Scrum
  • 5+ yrs of software development experience, ideally building infrastructure tools or systems management software
  • Experience with career development of top performers
  • Desire and ability to contribute significant time towards hands on development
  • The desire to take ownership and responsibility of issues and handle them effectively to resolution

We'd love to see:

  • Knowledge of CMDB products and technologies such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible, or Salt
  • Clear understanding of how servers, network devices, storage devices, and software are managed in very large scale environments
  • A diverse range of experience with a variety of programming languages and different tools
  • A keen interest in keeping abreast of technological advances and proven success at incorporating new technology into existing systems
