Our team:

Bloomberg's diverse community of engineers take on some of the world’s most interesting and important technical challenges. We develop impactful solutions to complex, real-world problems. With new systems being rolled out daily, we make an immediate impact on global markets and we look for the best software engineers to build them.

What’s in it for you?

Our training programme will educate you on the ins and outs of our technology stack. You'll learn how to be a successful software engineer in our high-energy and fast-paced environment, and become a pro on the Bloomberg Terminal. We'll also teach you about how we do database systems, network communication, real-time data processing, and build UIs.

After training, you will be ready to hit the ground running, leaving the training class with a strong network of new friends and colleagues from a range of backgrounds. You'll join a global team of engineers with a real passion for both innovating and solving problems. With many teams continuing to adopt an Agile approach to their work, you will work collaboratively and effectively on small teams, developing software that impacts thousands of power users around the world.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Take ownership of the full development cycle
  •  Partner with business stakeholders and other developers to design, build and roll out solutions that will optimize complex workflows
  •  Understand and efficiently manipulate large datasets
  •  Make quick, thoughtful decisions
  •  Be a collaborative member of your team
  •  Have a deep understanding of data structures and algorithms
  •  Be an excellent problem solver

You'll need to have:

  •  A degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related technology subject
  •  Programming experience in C, C++, C#, Java or Python
  •  A thirst for learning and a drive to keep improving

We are deeply proud of our diverse and open culture, and value diversity of thought and perspective in every form. If you have a degree outside of the above, but still have strong software development skills, then we can teach you the rest.

We're looking for engineers who have a real passion for writing reusable, performant solutions to complex problems, who can keep an open mind and adapt to an ever-changing market landscape, who can collaborate and work effectively on small teams, and who want to develop software that impacts thousands of power users around the world. We want people who see things differently, find solutions and collaborate instinctively.

Disruptive innovation and breakthrough performance only happen when we are able to channel the diverse ideas and experiences of our employees to solve the needs of our clients.
