Bloomberg delivers billions of data points to our customers each day and our clients heavily rely on comprehensive financial information including real-time market data to identify trends and gain data transparency so they can analyze the value of a potential investment, partnership, or acquisition target.  In order to make this analysis possible for our clients, the Data Technologies Engineering department is responsible for designing and building large-scale sophisticated infrastructure and data processing pipelines to acquire financial reference information and pricing data from sources around the world (regulatory agencies, exchanges, central banks, buy-side and sell-side firms, websites, news, feeds, etc).

The data processed through our systems is the lifeblood of the Bloomberg Terminal as well as Enterprise solutions across all the major asset classes including Equity, Fixed Income, Mutual Funds/ETFs, Mortgages, Portfolios/Holdings, and Indices.  In addition to these major asset classes, we provide news, biographical, and company management information for the major players in the financial markets.

Due to the nature and sensitivity of our data to the market, performance, reliability and quality are key features of our systems.  We apply state-of-the-art techniques (including Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Heuristic algorithms) to extract, standardize, enrich, and publish billions of data points that fuel Bloomberg products.  Our services leverage big data technologies such as HBase, Hive, MySQL Vitess, and Spark as well as a scalable Kubernetes-based microservice platform and a bi-temporal Point In Time (PIT) database solution.

We are a technologically diverse group solving a number of challenging problems using innovative techniques.  We are proud of our intellectual curiosity and the quality of our product.  We share a passion for solving real life problems and provide pragmatic solutions by rolling up our sleeves and collaborating seamlessly, within and across teams, to provide our clients with accurate, timely data to make critical investing decisions.
