July 31, 2020
At Bloomberg, our software runs the financial markets. To do this, we ingest this real-time market data and news from hundreds of exchanges and thousands of newswires around the world - to the tune of 100 billion ticks of data per day. Our users and downstream applications rely on us to be reliable and always available - this is where our SREs come in. Our SREs ensure our product is fast, reliable, and always available.
Our team: The Real Time Market Data and News Feeds SRE team sits right at the heart of Bloomberg's global market data operations. Market Data is information - trades, quotes, and other pricing data - gathered from around the world on every possible kind of financial instrument, from stocks and bonds to currencies and commodities. We are responsible for meeting our clients' need for speed and stability across the market data pipeline - from ingestion of real-time market data from hundreds of financial sources, through to enrichment and delivery of data to the clients.
As a System Reliability Engineer (SRE) at Bloomberg, your mission is to drive the automation of our production operations, everything from reaction to failures, deployment, testing, and quality checks.

Investigate, triage, and troubleshoot production problems as they occur
Develop and maintain tools used in investigating production problems
Build automation for manual processes to increase reliability while at the same time reducing time to market and cost
Help promote and improve development and operational standards within the wider group; you will work with your business partners and software engineers
Ensure that support documentation is produced, maintained and improved
You'll need to have:
Excellent Python skills
Proficiency in an OO language such as C++ or Java
