Bloomberg financial software developer

Bloomberg
#1

Hello,

I am interested to apply to the entry level R&D (Research & Development) position at Bloomberg.
It is a software development job but it seems to be closely related to finance.
I am a mathematician (MSc pure maths) and I am interested in developing my programming skills
as well as learning more about finance and financial mathematical techniques, modelling etc.

Is this job maths related? Do you have the opportunity to choose a path in finance
if you start this programme?

Please if anyone knows help me decide. Thanks

it’s a pure proramming job, of course you program for the Bloomberg terminal, so it has some financial and therefore mathematical aspects - but it’s mostly software engineering. It’s definitely not a quant role, which might be what you looking for.
