Leading the technology ecosystem in New York City

November 8, 2017

With the proliferation of startups, emergence of FinTech and evolution of traditional business models, New York City is no longer the exclusive home of financial institutions and major corporations.

As the largest tech employer headquartered in New York City, as recently demonstrated by Built In NYC’s Top 100 list of the biggest local digital tech companies, Bloomberg has been engineering for the future since day one.

For more than 35 years, Bloomberg has been a leader in innovative, ground-breaking thinking and design. From the beginning, Mike Bloomberg and his partners saw an opportunity to upend the finance industry. They built the Bloomberg Terminal: a computer system that allowed everyone the same real-time access to financial information at the same time, no matter their location.

We are New York’s first and most successful tech startup. Every day, Bloomberg processes over 100 billion market data messages, more than 400 million emails and 17 million instant chats, across 180+ countries. Our 50 million distinct streams of financial data are transmitted in 13 milliseconds – 27 times faster than the blink of an eye.

Today, Bloomberg’s unrivaled technology – our software, hardware, and network – continues to help drive the world’s financial markets. Over 5,000 technologists globally define, architect, build, and deploy complete systems to fulfill the needs of leading financial market participants across the world. This includes communications platforms, real-time data, analytics, trading solutions, news and other critical information.

Key decision makers depend on the Terminal to trade, manage risk, consume information, and navigate time-critical decisions. Hundreds of data scientists, researchers, and software engineers at Bloomberg use natural language processing and machine learning to tackle some of today’s hardest data science problems, especially those related to news analysis, information retrieval and search. Our goal is to help our clients derive intelligence and insight from data, so they can make smarter, more informed decisions about their business and financial strategies.

We’re building the workplace of the future. It’s our purpose.
