Why working at Bloomberg was incredible in 2017

December 22, 2017

Here are 8 things in 2017 that made Bloomberg a fun and inspiring place to work.

We opened our new European HQ
The first wholly owned and designed Bloomberg building in the world, the Bloomberg London office is also the world’s most sustainable office design. This office serves as our new European headquarters located on one of the UK’s most significant archaeological sites, home to the ancient Temple of Mithras and at the heart of what was Roman London’s commercial center.

We nerded out with the Bloomberg Keyboard
This year, Bloomberg LP turned 35 years old. To celebrate, we took a look back at the 10 models of the iconic Terminal keyboard.

We celebrated cultural heritage with art
Our commitment to arts and culture expands beyond our philanthropic support in the community. A diverse workforce and open culture are at the heart of our company and vital to our success.  We had artists help communicate the rich heritage and powerful impact of inclusion in the work force through US Black History Month, UK Black History Month, and Black Consciousness Day in Brazil.

 

We launched TicToc by Bloomberg
TicToc by Bloomberg, the first and only global news network streaming live on Twitter, fueled by 2,700 Bloomberg journalists and analysts, reporting from 120 countries to deliver news 24/7.

We went all in to give back
In times of need and in the everyday, our employees and company are dedicated to serving our communities. The Philanthropy & Engagement Blog highlights our employee and corporate involvement, including our Bloomberg 35 series featuring 35 philanthropy partners in honor of Bloomberg LP’s 35th Anniversary.

We ran some more
Our Square Mile Relay took place in 10 cities across the world including, for the first time in San Francisco and Japan. And, we had a university student team competing for the first time ever.

 

We paved the way in tech
We led the way in the ongoing conversation around a code of ethics for the data science community. And we contributed to open source projects like Project Jupyter, Apache Solr and Kubernetes to advance the tech community, bring transparency and facilitate collaboration.

 

We challenged students with real-world trading 
Bloomberg Trading Challenge, the first university investment competition to take place entirely within the Bloomberg Terminal.
