The world is drowning in data. Do you have the ability to navigate through? If so, we are looking for you!

Bloomberg is after skilled Data Engineers who are beginning their careers in the professional marketplace to discover opportunities out of large amounts of data to gain unique insights for us and our clients.

Do you know which companies that drill for natural gas in the United States are most affected by water shortages? Or how terrorism is impacting the supply chain of major corporations around the world?

These are the type of questions we want to ask and answer.

You would be working with a team of experts to extract information and identify significant patterns in data from around the world. You will develop predictive models to help our clients understand the impact of and correlation among data-sets.

  • Develop research ideas, prototypes and proofs of concept, both in collaboration with other Data Engineers and individually led projects
  • Determine and justify which quantitative techniques are most appropriate for the problems at hand
  • Communicate the impact of your findings to collaborators across the organization, including engineers, business, and data teams

What we need to see:

  • Ability to legally work in the US without visa sponsorship
  • A portfolio of completed projects demonstrating expertise in data analysis
  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages-Python or R would be perfect, but ability and willingness to learn is paramount
  • Familiarity with statistical and machine learning methods
  • Proven ability to work in teams and communicate effectively with stakeholders

We'd also love to see:

  • Experience with data modeling and using relational databases for storage and analysis
  • Experience with software engineering best practices, such as version control and testing
