As the Bloomberg Financial Products User Experience (UX) team, we re-imagine the way business and financial industries access the world’s financial market data.
Our worldview begins and ends with our clients’ needs. We conduct research for any large initiative using our in-house usability lab in order to get a deeper understanding of our clients’ goals and challenges.
We are driven to continually enhance and evolve the company’s flagship software platform – the Bloomberg Terminal. The scale of the Terminal is vast, much like apps in an operating system. This results in a wide set of interesting challenges and endlessly diverse opportunities for us to explore solutions for varied user types and domains, from desktop to mobile, hardware to software.
Interaction designers at Bloomberg are responsible for concept development, wireframe design, and low fidelity prototyping. They visit customers to conduct contextual inquiries, document their observations and synthesize their findings to inform their design solutions.
User Experience Researcher
User Experience Researchers employ a wide variety of research methodologies including task-based lab sessions, ethnographic interviews, heuristic evaluations, card sorts, and usage and feedback data analysis. Our state-of-the-art usability lab is equipped with video, screen capture and eye-tracking technology.
Working closely with Interaction Designers and software developers, Visual Designers establish the visual language across all channels, including mobile, balancing the needs of the brand with the need for clear and precise display of complex data.
Our prototypers are responsible for building interactive prototypes to validate design concepts for next-generation products. They work closely with the other members of the team to quickly turn interaction and visual design specifications into high-fidelity prototypes that are used by our customers in usability testing.
Our technical writers create client-facing user documentation for the Bloomberg Terminal. You will work in a fast-paced environment, interacting with product managers and programmers at all levels of the company, and driving the scope and direction of documentation deliverables. Sitting within UX Design, we have a keen focus on discoverability of our product and collaborating towards client-focused solutions.
