Senior Python Engineer - Research Analytics (Contractor)
The Research Analytics team is an integral part of Bloomberg's financial Research Management System product. Financial Research is a broad field that encompasses workflows geared at leveraging expert qualitative and quantitative recommendations to guide investment decisions. These decisions, or recommendations, are then shared either within a given company or sold to clients.
Our team is responsible for ingesting a data set of such Research Interactions between Research Providers and Consumers. Additionally, for Research Consumers, we provide tools that utilize the Interactions dataset to evaluate the quality of the provided research services, "Valuation".
As part of a company wide initiative to keep up with industry standards, we are looking for someone to help us with our Python3 migration. We have a large number of production facing Python software to migrate and upgrade to the latest version (3.9 as of writing this).
You would be paired with a member of the team who would help you get familiar with the various Bloomberg systems along with our deployment and testing processes and our coding standards. You would then have to devise a strategy and execute on the migration.
While the Python migration work would be the priority, we would also take this opportunity to improve the various executables and libraries we touch. This would include onboarding them to our latest SDLC standards and helping us move towards automated testing and rollouts. We would rely on your judgment and recommendations to ensure that this is done safely. You will need to have:
- Strong enthusiasm towards code quality, and desire to build long-standing and stable systems, by incrementally improving existing systems
- A strong understanding of Python
- Good level understanding of C++
- Passion for SDLC and improving processes
*Please note that this role falls within IR35*
