Posted Jan 29, 2021 - Requisition No. 88582
Bloomberg is the global leader in business and financial data, news and insight. Using the power of technology, we connect the world’s decision makers to accurate information on the financial markets – and help them make faster, smarter decisions.
Modern finance teams have an increasing dependence on quality data. While valuable, the sheer volume of the data available can be overwhelming, making it difficult to tell compelling stories about performance, strategy, and prospects. That’s where our team comes in.
We build powerful and intuitive data visualization and dashboarding tools for data scientists, ML researchers, and quantitative modelers performing sophisticated analyses. Our tools enable our users to explore, understand, and communicate relationships within data, and better leverage its possibilities.
We work on many different projects and products: from code editors and language parsers to custom UI widgets and visualization libraries. With so much in store for 2021 and beyond, our team is growing. Read on to learn more about upcoming projects and our people!
