Senior Software Engineer/SRE- Data and Runtime Stability
Posted Oct 16, 2023 - Requisition No. 120838
Bloomberg's Data and Runtime Stability SRE team is trusted to administer the end-to-end environment for Bloomberg's installation of numerous services which support the applications that constitute Bloomberg’s line of products. On any given day we're inventing, engineering, developing, building, coding, trouble-shooting and maintaining a wide range of: tools, monitors, frameworks, interfaces, protocols, solutions and best-practices. These components stitch together a robust suite of automated and self-healing systems that manage the services that Data and Runtime provides to the rest of the firm. We improve uptime, provision and balance resources, architect and coordinate operational procedures, administer backup and recovery processes, coordinate maintenance windows, manage replication and oversee workflows.
In addition to managing the overall Data and Runtime environment, you'll work directly on installations of technologies that use services such as RabbitMQ, Comdb2, Kafka, Redis and many more; getting to collaborate every day with the application developers that create these applications to integrate the services they provide into the Bloomberg operational environment as well as Bloomberg products. So, not only will you have high-level-ownership and "the classic SRE responsibilities" such as: system tuning, performance analysis and the management of patches, installations, and upgrades; you'll also have immediate access to the experts that are designing and coding the Bloomberg specific components, APIs and methods. This means insight and entry to the lowest levels of how Bloomberg applications interact with each other and the Runtime environment for the purposes of both in-depth troubleshooting and enhancing stability, reliability, performance and feature-set.
We're open to trying new ideas, processes, and technologies. The right applicant will be imaginative, creative, self-motivated, and highly curious as innovation and initiative are highly valued here. Problem-solving, programming, logical frameworks, and Unix systems should all be second nature. We are looking for someone that will continually strive to improve our environment; regularly asking “why?” and saying: “we can make this better!”
