If you love tech, Bloomberg is the place for you.
“We’re a technology company,” explains Hannah Diddams, Head of Data Science and Insights. “The product that we have—the Bloomberg Terminal—is rooted in technology. In fact, some might say it was the first technology disruptor.”
Bloomberg uses its technology to deliver business and financial info, news, and insights to 300 million people around the world.
“The speed at which technology is advancing and the pulse at which Bloomberg flows technology through its veins is nothing short of amazing,” says Jeff Fairbanks, who’s responsible for each and every type of Bloomberg’s communication technology.
Apart from loving tech, what else makes a candidate a great fit?
Well, you should be eager to grow. The company is super committed to education and offers lots of profesional development opportunities.
Diddams notes, “I’ve never seen more access to training and tools that can help each of us become a better manager or a better team member.”
You should also be the type of person who challenges the status quo. Bloomberg is an innovative company, which means the ideal team member isn’t, as one manager puts it, “unafraid to ask the tough questions” and ask “Can we do this better?”
Finally, you should be a creative thinker. Elizabeth Pinelli, the team leader of New York’s analytics buy side team, says, “At Bloomberg, we believe in diversity of thought.” That means crazy and “weird” ideas are encouraged—after all, crazy and weird ideas are what have helped make Bloomberg an industry leader.
