Posted Jun 3, 2024 - Requisition No. 125728

Bloomberg delivers critical information in a world where information matters. We give influential decision makers in business, finance and government an edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of news, people and ideas. To do that, we need a constant flow of ideas, energy, innovation—which is where you come in. At Bloomberg, you will have the opportunity to go above and beyond and to take risks.
Financial firms rely on dozens of critical systems to develop and execute strategies, evaluate risk, supervise P&L, lead sales and trading, and handle settlement. The constant challenge is the complexity of integrating these systems so that data moves accurately across the enterprise, at higher speeds and lower costs. Building solutions in-house can take a large team and a larger investment. Integrators and consultants may not understand a firm’s business model or data, or not offer the ongoing support required to maintain and improve the solution once live.
That’s where we come in. Here at Enterprise Technology Solutions, we help firms implement and handle that complexity. By providing common tools, services and expertise, we enable firms to simplify technology relationships, which ultimately drive lower total cost of ownership, faster time to market and improved transparency. With our track record in delivering hosted solutions and our understanding of our customers’ needs, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help clients with this challenge.
What's the role? 
As an Integration Specialist supporting our ever growing business, you will be responsible for technical integration between our client systems and Bloomberg's world-class applications. Integrations often involve crafting and deploying solutions for clients looking to integrate their systems with the Bloomberg cloud, but can also involve integrating client systems with other in-house or 3rd party sources or destinations. This process requires holding technical conversations with our clients in order to build an understanding of their workflow and specific needs.
In this role, you will be responsible for client projects involving the development of data transformation middleware technology that supports both real-time and batch based processing, between the client and the Bloomberg cloud and/or other 3rd party systems.

  • Improve processes, best practices, and enhance efficiency in on-boarding setups and connections through proactively identifying gaps to deliver improved client experience 
  • Manage multiple projects simultaneously with different priorities in an agile and efficient manner

  • Experience with troubleshooting networks and connectivity issues (including LAN/WAN & TCP/IP)

  • Demonstrated experience successfully managing multiple projects to meet required deliverables, including communicating progress and outcomes to relevant stakeholders 
  • Ability to work independently and build successful relationships with external customers 
  • Ability to proactively identify gaps within existing processes and taking the initiative to improve them by defining and piloting new procedures 

We’d love to see: 

  • Experience applying Data Transformation to workflows using any ETL tools (e.g. Informatica / Mulesoft / TIBCO / Dell Boomi) or through transformation languages (e.g. XML XSLT / Perl) 
  • Experience with IT Service Management or client relationship management 
  • Experience with programming / scripting 
  • Basic understanding of cloud technologies e.g. AWS, Azure
