Bloomberg is the world's premier financial data and analytics provider. For over 30 years, we have provided timely and accurate data to the world's financial institutions, including the largest banks and most elite hedge funds.

Here in our San Francisco office we’ve identified an opportunity to reach a new client base by building a brand new product that opens our data, core products and visualizations to data scientists, machine learning researchers, and quantitative modelers.

We're building a financial development platform and are looking for people to help build out visualizations and rich features on top of Jupyter Notebooks.

We’ll trust you to:

We’d love to see:
  • Experience with chromium
  • Experience with Text and Code editors or experience with IDE plugins
  • Experience contributing to Open-Source projects
