Senior Software Engineer - AIM
Posted Jan 31, 2020 - Requisition No. 81070
The Asset Investment Manager (AIM) team builds Bloomberg’s award-winning buy-side order management system (OMS). This platform is used by hundreds of institutional firms with more than $10 trillion in assets. We facilitate every process in the trading life cycle from idea generation to post-trade operations, and everything in between. We need the most inspired engineers in Bloomberg to help us transform this platform into the next best OMS in the financial services industry.
AIM is one of the best places to solve some of the most complex problems in the trading world with exciting, new technologies. In the past few years we are actively re-architecting our system with the latest tools that both Bloomberg and the open source world have to offer. This has positioned us to invest in building brand new, sophisticated systems. We are taking on age-old problems like latency and scaling with new and exciting solutions. Many of these solutions involve technologies like RabbitMQ, Redis, Kafka, and Cassandra. We even built one of Bloomberg’s only object relational models (ORM) for Comdb2, which began as an AIM engineer’s personal project. On our team we enable our developers to be as imaginative and excited as they can be.
What's in it for you:
This position will revolve on creating the next generation infrastructure for one of AIM's critical products. Employees will take ownership of projects and work through the complete software development life cycle from requirements analysis, design, coding to deployment. In addition to having complete freedom to explore and research the best technologies that will help solve a particular problem, employees will get an opportunity to have hands-on experience with cutting edge technologies like Kafka, Kafka Streams, Hadoop, ML algorithms, and Python.
Our success is driven by engineers that take pride in owning a product end-to-end, from design to development and even deployment. We invest in our people. As a result, we are looking for passionate, curious engineers with an appetite to play around with interesting business models and even more interesting tools. We are looking for team players that are eager to challenge themselves and their peers.

- Take responsibility for the full software development life-cycle, from understanding the needs of the business through to coding, deployment and maintenance. Your work will be highly visible, making you highly accountable
- Enjoy solving highly complex problems while understanding the scope and impact of your work
- Be eager, resourceful, flexible, and an excellent collaborator. You will balance the best of technical and product knowledge to craft unsurpassed product solutions for our customers

You'll need to have:
- 2+ years demonstrated experience programming in C++ or Python
