As a financial data, news, and analytics market leader, Bloomberg continuously invests in its technology to keep delivering the best data and analytics to support the global derivatives market. To this end, Bloomberg's Derivatives Engineering team is responsible for owning the full life-cycle of services and applications for pricing derivatives. We build systems and products that enable clients to generate trade ideas, structure deals, connect to electronic trading platforms and capture market movements.
We sit at the intersection of finance and technology, working directly with product managers, financial engineers, and quantitative analysts to understand client and market needs. These foundational systems get billions of hits per day and provide data and analytics to many of Bloomberg's flagship products.
