Our Team

We are Bloomberg Enterprise Data - fast paced, innovative and fast-growing. We have worked hard and smart to become the $2.5B business we are today. We collaborate closely with our clients, taking the time to understand their unique businesses while focusing on specific data and technology needs so that we can help them achieve their business objectives. We have an endless selection of data sets covering all asset types. We have multiple delivery technologies. This allows our clients to get exactly the data they need, when they need it, in the format they prefer.

Our Sales Development Team serves as the entry point to Enterprise Data Sales. You will be provided with rigorous training around our products, commercials and selling methodologies while gaining exposure to various client types, enterprise workflows and technology stacks. Whilst you may have not had direct sales experience in your career to date, you should be able to articulate the value proposition of Bloomberg Data as well as being comfortable positioning your ideas to others. You will bring with you a passion for technology, demonstrated perhaps by attending course or two in python, machine learning or NLP. This, coupled with your data knowledge, will help give you the edge, as the markets and our clients businesses evolve.
You will be responsible for sales across our Enterprise Data Product suite including Data Management Solutions (DMS and DL+), Reference Data, Real-Time data feeds, Regulatory Solutions and the Bloomberg Valuation Service (BVAL) to both new prospects and an existing book of business.

We'll trust you to:

  • Manage the Enterprise sales engagement efficiently from beginning to end
  • Use market, product, and technical expertise to identify client needs
  • Help clients solve their regulatory obligations
  • Produce clear, concise proposals with an appropriate level of detail that identify client needs, current workflow(s), the right offerings and commercials
  • Establish and execute a pipeline strategy for achieving sales targets through the appropriate stages of the sales cycle within your assigned client base
  • Build relationships across client organizations to ensure that all stakeholders are managed appropriately as part of the sales process
  • Balance engagements across the sales life-cycle to maintain desired pipeline levels for long, medium, and short-term sales
  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of One Data. One Source. We expect you will be able to articulate the benefits to customers and prospects in order to expand our footprint and strengthen the overall relationship by driving home the value in leveraging Bloomberg as their primary data source for all their data needs

You'll need to have:

  • 3+ years of experience selling in the Financial Services Industry
  • Strong product knowledge around Bloomberg's comprehensive data offerings

  • An ability to leverage product and domain knowledge to build and maintain credibility with clients, identify gaps and recommend solutions

What’s It Like To Work Here?

We work hard. We are ambitious and set ourselves tough business goals. We are a meritocracy where everyone has a voice - not a job title. Working with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with is more important than titles or position. Things move fast, and we want people who will enjoy working in this environment and feed off the energy. But it isn’t all about work. Giving back is one of our core values, and there are many ways to get involved in philanthropic initiatives from helping local school kids with their reading to helping clean up local parks and waterways.
