The product will form the backbone of a trader's blotter centric work-flow across many trading products: EMSX, AIM, SSEOMS, Tradebook, and FX. We're currently rolling out verison 2.0 of EMSX - the world's most popular Execution Management System.

Our team:

We write our UI primarily in Rapid+. It is highly asynchronous, event-driven, and object-oriented JavaScript. Our code lives client-side we react to clicks and key-strokes instantaneously on thousands of terminals around the world while our business logic works away in JavaScript servers here.

  • Work with Product to flesh out requirements, collaborate with other engineering groups, design and build new Worksheets features and release them to our users whilst keeping the system as stable as ever.
  • Be quick and creative to solve highly complex problems while understanding the scope and impact of your work.
  • Drive the incorporation of new technologies and improve development practices.
  • Mentor others and encourage knowledge sharing in order to drive the growth of the team.

You'll need to have:

  • An intermediate level of expertise in JavaScript with the desire to become a JavaScript expert.
  • Strong problem solving skills and a willingness to solve new problems in unique ways.
  • Good communication skills to work with other teams and explain technical problems to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Experience triaging and debugging production problems.
  • An open mindset to using new technologies.

I’ve been at Bloomberg for almost 5 years now and throughout my time in Analytics, I learned an immense amount about the Customer Service industry. Particularly, how clients interact with client service representatives and through technological means. It also connected me to many different departments throughout the organization, and that knowledge and network has helped me drive results involving multiple stakeholders.

I get uncomfortable if I start feeling too comfortable at work. Luckily there is no shortage of exciting challenges here.

I really enjoy working on stories that allow me to collaborate with other Bloomberg reporters to reveal deep insights on the largest operators in the credit space.
