Bloomberg AIM (Asset and Investment Manager) is a buy-side trading platform used by the biggest players in finance. Their platform is a one-stop-shop that enables everything from idea generation to trade execution and post-trade operations. It’s a huge system – built by more than 200 engineers – used to manage trillions of dollars every single day. They’re the market-leading platform, and Bloomberg continues to invest in their growth as a product and engineering team – that’s where you come in!

The AIM Regulatory Reporting team is responsible for ensuring that AIM clients report their trading activity in compliance with various financial regulations. They own a highly visible system and as such are able to impact their clients directly. Because of the nature of their product, they work closely with different engineering teams as well as their business and sales counterparts. They face the technical challenge of balancing the needs for latency and scalability required in a large distributed system, with the requirements of high reliability and accuracy of a business-critical system. Their collaborative team always discusses decisions openly and relies on each other to deliver on their shared goals.
