The Communication Channels team builds products used by the Bloomberg community for real-time communication such as exchanging quotes, trade ideas, news and other financial information. Our email (MSG) and instant message (IB) products deliver more than 2 billion messages across millions of chat rooms per day. We have a broad user-base unlike any other in the company, comprising of asset managers, brokers, traders, financial analysts and desks across all asset classes. Our users rely on these products because of their real-time performance, massive scale, ironclad security, tight integration with financial data and applications on the Bloomberg Terminal. Most important is the singular access to the Bloomberg network of 350,000 financial professionals.
To make sure we satisfy our clients’ need for speed as well as stability, we have very high standards for reliability and scalability. And that’s where our SREs come in! Our goal is to ensure that IB and MSG are up 24/7. We’re involved from design to deployment to ensure our infrastructure is reliable, performant and scalable.
What’s in it for you:
Given the criticality of our products in the daily workflow of the financial community, and the scale at which they are used, our SRE team is one of the most visible teams across Bloomberg. Our products are continuously evolving and have experienced more than 100% growth in usage over the last year, which means we have to have a very sharp focus on stability and scalability. As a member of the SRE team, you’ll build and standardize our performance and capacity planning environment to allow us to easily answer questions around the health and capacity of our system, as we add more features and users.
We’ll trust you to define standard methodologies and standards for testing/ monitoring/ logging/ alarming/provisioning across 90+ developers and build tools to automate our release processes. We’ll expect you to be passionate about using the right tool for the job, and research new tools to determine how we can best use them for our systems. You’ll have the opportunity to create sophisticated dashboards for our engineers as well as our business partners. A critical part of our mission is fostering a culture of system reliability across MSG/IB
Engineering, and you’ll be able to make a significant impact on the design choices and decisions that go into developing MSG and IB infrastructure.
As an SRE on our team there is an opportunity for flexibility in forging your own path and driving the SRE culture forward. Making our infrastructure best-in-class will be your main mission, so there will be many opportunities to create and implement your own improvements. We’ll send you to conferences and meetups to keep up with the SRE space outside Bloomberg and apply that knowledge to building and improving our processes here at Bloomberg.
