Senior Software Engineer - Integration Gateway
The goal of Bloomberg Connectivity & Integration (BCI) group is to provide a platform for customers to integrate Bloomberg products with their own highly complex and time sensitive software systems. With ever growing demands for more capabilities in data transformation and analytics, we are building our Integration Platform offering through an architecture that uses a combination of open source, third party, and in-house technologies to meet these demands.
Our team owns and develops the critical Integration Gateway engine that sits at the heart of the Integration Platform product. The Gateway provides customers and implementation specialists with a no-code toolkit to transform, enrich and process data in transit between Bloomberg and third-party systems. From a technical perspective we regularly work across a breadth of domains:
- Distributed systems
- High availability, fault tolerance and self-healing systems
- Data consistency
- Language compilation
- Service-oriented architecture (SOA)
- User interface development
Our infrastructure currently exists in two main flavours. We have our existing product which is developed predominantly in C#/F# and deployed to a Windows .NET Framework environment. We also have our new architecture which we are currently deploying which is being developed in .NET Core/Java and targeting Linux servers. We believe that a strong engineer can pick up any language with some ramp up time and so as long as you have an interest in the technology stack we use, do apply regardless of whether you have worked on these languages before.
