Posted on Friday, June 28, 2024

Bloomberg’s CTO Office is the future-looking technical and product arm of Bloomberg L.P. We envision, design, and prototype the next generation infrastructure, hardware, and applications for the Bloomberg Terminal. Our projects include machine learning-powered products, cloud computing infrastructure and strategy, open source stewardship, natural language processing, and more. We are passionate about what we do.

What’s In It For You

Bloomberg is looking for a Technical Product Manager to shape and execute the vision, and roadmap for the next-generation Bloomberg search platform. Our search platforms offer unique and exciting challenges in terms of precision, recall and speed. As a Technical Product Manager, you will have ownership over a suite of infrastructure, grow our platforms, expand our user base, and build out new features and capabilities to fulfill our mission. You will interact very closely with internal stakeholders from product and engineering. This is a high-leverage role in a very cross-functional environment, so you’ll need to be comfortable wearing many hats and balancing technical expertise with business acumen. You will work in a group of other highly motivated product managers that work on a range of adjacent projects in AI.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Develop a long-term vision and roadmap for Bloomberg’s next-generation federated search platform.
  • Translate product roadmap features and requirements into well-crafted, testable user stories and acceptance test criteria, set priorities and define the scope whilst effectively managing resources.
  • Interact with end users and a diverse group of partners to understand their workflows and technical requirements and their needs for creating, managing and accessing metadata.
  • Work closely with stakeholders across the company to develop an understanding of capabilities, constraints and opportunities, anticipate scale challenges, map business requirements to technical vision, and increase service capabilities to better support internal and external partners.
  • Work in an Agile environment and continuously review business needs, refine priorities, outline milestones and deliverables, and identify opportunities and risks.

You’ll need to have:

  • 5+ years of experience with technical product management or technical leadership
  • Advanced degree (Masters or Ph.D) or equivalent experience in information retrieval, natural language processing, and/or deep learning research
  • 5+ years of experience with information retrieval / search techniques and tools (e.g. Solr, Lucene)
  • 3+ years of experience with the application of modern ML techniques (e.g. RAG) to search
  • 3+ years of experience with the application of modern ML techniques (e.g. vector databases) to information retrieval
  • Engagement with the research community and a strong publication record in relevant venues
  • Experience working with cross-functional teams
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills

We’d love to see:

  • A good understanding of financial markets, instruments and products
  • Open source involvement or community presence
  • Exposure to Bloomberg Terminal and/or enterprise data products
