Infrastructure Platform Team Leader

Company: Bloomberg

Location: New York, NY

It’s not every day that an opportunity emerges to lead a team—especially a team that is the cornerstone for on-demand software defined Infrastructure. Engineers across the company are depending on our Infrastructure Platform team to provide a unified, self-service experience for all Infrastructure events. We’re working towards this by building a streamlined workflow product from the ground up. In order to succeed in our mission, we need a single source of truth (CMDB) and simple, yet sophisticated UI/API(s) for capital/asset management. This product needs to have intuitive, real-time event processing, and responsive historical search navigation.

We need you to help drive this initiative forward through motivation, mentorship, and hands-on technical leadership within our team.

What’s in it for you:

This is a unique opportunity to help lead our NoOps evolution and influence the future of Bloomberg Infrastructure. Most of your time will be focused on building innovative user interfaces, developing robust RESTful APIs, implementing critical Microservices, and designing scalable Data Models. We’ll also need you to motivate and manage our team by building relationships internally and externally and gaining stakeholder buy-in. Senior Engineers and Product/Program Managers across departments will be looking to us to resolve their most complex problems. Collaboration and adaptation within a constantly changing business environment will help you develop expertise in the delivery of core products, customer needs, and the release of those products to meet our customer needs.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Lead the development of technical solutions to meet current and future business needs
  •  Ensure continuous improvement of solutions and ways of working
  •  Establish best practices that result in the highest quality in our products and service
  •  Inspire and motivate a high-performing team to achieve great results, while supporting individual growth and development
  •  Create a strong team environment, which is focused on delivering value and increasing our capabilities
  •  Develop strong partnerships across internal development and business teams
  •  Take risks as our fast paced environment will require you to rise to the challenge and strive to exceed expectations

You need to have:

  •  4+ years managing agile scrum teams with several developers, scrum masters & Product owners
  •  6+ years managing large scale complex projects that involve multiple internal/external teams and stakeholders with competing priorities
  •  Experience with performance management and career development of top performers
  •  Desire and ability to contribute ~40% time towards hands on development
  •  8+ yrs of software development experience as a Data Engineer working with Graph databases or highly complex N dimensional RMDBS
  •  An ability to foster a collaborative team environment through driving a strong culture of teamwork and taking advantage of team diversity
  •  The ability to effectively listen to, communicate, challenge, and influence team members, peers, and senior managers
  •  The desire to take ownership and responsibility of issues and handle them effectively to resolution

We'd love to see:

  •  Knowledge of CMDB
  •  A diverse range of experience with a variety of programming languages and different tools
  •  A keen interest in keeping abreast of technological advances and proven success at incorporating new technology into existing systems
