Our projects include machine learning-powered products, cloud computing infrastructure and strategy, open source stewardship, natural language processing, and more. We are passionate about what we do.

What We Do:

Our mission is simple - enable the seamless adoption of secure, internal cloud-native infrastructure for any application and by our 8K+ engineers in the company. This includes container, job and workflow orchestration, stream processing, ETL, storage, databases, caches and more.

  • Secure, self-service, scalable, with service-level agreements
  • Instrumented, observable, debuggable
  • Well-integrated with ubiquitous Bloomberg proprietary technologies

  • Experience with:
  • Public cloud
  • Capacity planning and resource management
  • Vendor/relationship management
