"I recently had an opportunity to move from the New York office to the London office to take on a new role as a software development team leader. It’s been an amazing ride!"
I’ve been with Bloomberg for over ten years. Starting as an entry-level programmer in New York, I was quickly given full design and support oversight on the trade alerting system for Bloomberg’s voice trading platform. Later, I became a UI toolkit rep responsible for helping my team with questions. Now, I’m a software development team leader in London.
My days involve debugging issues, prioritising projects, designing workflows, and answering loads of questions. In addition, I manage a team of developers and help them grow in their professional journey.
I have three that come to mind:
First was creating the Software Infrastructure Champions program. It’s a bunch of high-energy individuals helping developers across the organisation to answer questions about our in-house technologies and helping resolve issues with those technologies.
I also helped build the alerting system for Bloomberg’s voice trade platform, including full crash recovery.
And, I got to be part of the team to build a new Bloomberg Terminal function, NOTE, which is a notes tool.
Traveling or planning travel. At Bloomberg, being involved with the Software Infrastructure Champions program, campus recruitment, FIRST Robotics and volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.
