There are some common yet complex problems application teams at Bloomberg face - challenges of large-scale data storage, low-latency retrievals, high-volume requests and high availability over a distributed environment. Our group, Foundational Services, aims to create standardized solutions to these challenges by building core services and technology frameworks for enterprise-wide use.
We are building these platforms using NoSQL open source technologies. But, when it comes to latency and high availability, these technologies often don't meet our service expectations in their off-the-shelf form. We want to change that. That's why we have been making novel open source contributions to technologies such as Apache Hbase, Cassandra and Kafka. We introduced the notion of Standby regions in HBase, allowing for High Availability Reads, and championed features such as improved caching, multi-tenancy support and the HBase Spark connector.
If you are passionate about distributed systems, have seen them behave in production and have interacted with the open source community, we'd like to talk to you about an opening on our team.
