The Bloomberg Buy-Side Solutions Group partners with our most sophisticated clients to ensure we anticipate and meet their evolving needs during periods of transformation. As a Solutions Architect you will be expected to develop an intimate knowledge of the client’s business and technology priorities—and to conceive, design and oversee delivery of scalable solutions so our clients can reach their objectives. To do this, you will need to drive a common understanding of needs between internal and external stakeholders and you will need to combine knowledge of systems functionality with exceptional and pragmatic problem-solving skills.
We’ll trust you to:
  • Represent Bloomberg’s buy-side solutions with a wide range of client stakeholders
  • Engage with clients to understand their needs, strategic priorities, and technical parameters, to not just deliver what they are asking for but what they truly need
  • Relay these needs back to Bloomberg stakeholders in the form of a proposed solution and client’s objectives, working with Implementation, Product, and Engineering teams to ensure approach is in line with best practices and vision
  • Exercise sound judgment in leading discussions on trade-offs between client-specific needs and broader business priorities
  • Develop client-aligned roadmaps and collateral including tutorials, sample code, reference implementations, and presentations that will be used by practitioners as well as executive client decision makers
  • Leverage deep client knowledge when coordinating with Program Management, Product, and Engineering to develop and deliver an execution plan
  • Ensure budgets and timelines accurately reflect the nuances and complexities of the client and Bloomberg
You'll need to have:
  • 10+ years of experience in a technical project management or a technical sales role
  • Deep familiarity with asset management, global and multi-asset experience a plus
  • Familiar with full investment lifecycle as well as investment operations
  • Prior experience with change management and business transformation initiatives
  • Track record of client engagement and communication, with the ability to craft and deliver both technical documentation and conceptual presentations (white-board, small team, broad audience)
  • Understand and articulate implications of various technology architectures
    • Structured thinker who is process-oriented and systematic in approach

  • Extremely pragmatic with good commercial sense, comfortable making principles-based recommendations, tradeoffs, and decisions
  • High standards and strong sense of personal ownership, comfortable setting and holding a high bar with internal and external stakeholders
  • Leadership skills to effect change via influence and without authority
  • Versatile communicator who is able to coordinate and create alignment across varied groups including sales, product, engineering and client
  • Entrepreneurial and passionate learner who can quickly become an expert in various domains and conceptualize the impact of new information
