  • Lead the team to partner with global counterparts, other data teams, and core business groups, including Product, News, Bloomberg Intelligence and Engineering to help develop and improve fit-for-purpose data that powers our products, including functionality across the product set.
  • Mobilize the team to design and implement proactive data quality management supported by client-focused metrics and process observability (i.e. business intelligence) for Consumer and supporting department-wide initiatives. 
  • Develop data modeling and ETL skills within the team and collaborate with Engineering teams to develop a robust Industrials data product that can deliver value across multiple client-facing products (e.g. Terminal, Enterprise files, etc)

You'll need to have:

  • Minimum 3 years of direct or indirect leadership experience (for example leading projects, mentoring people, etc.)
