Bloomberg isn’t just a place where you come to work every day. We’re measured by our contributions, and not by titles. We don’t need an open-door policy. We sit in bullpens, shoulder-to-shoulder. 


We take care to foster a culture of diversity and community, and we are dedicated to our employees’ well-being, offering generous benefits, training and opportunities for meaningful volunteerism.


Through community service and charitable giving, we strive to make an effective impact on the community through a range of programs in the areas of health, sustainability, literacy, social welfare and the arts.


We are also a sustainable company. We’re always finding greener ways of working. Like our new data center in New York, which is the second data center and the 17th building in the world to earn LEED – Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design – certification. It recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.


And we’re helping others to be more sustainable, too. For instance, we recently made a major investment in analytical tools for the green bond market, which finances projects that address climate change.


When Michael Bloomberg founded this company, he made giving back a part of its DNA. As we’ve grown, we’ve been able to do more and more for the world around us. Today we devote an incredible amount of resources, including our time and talents, to bringing out the best in our communities. Moreover, our profits fuel the work undertaken by Bloomberg Philanthropies, whose mission is to create better, longer lives for the greatest number of people.

Here are some of our stories.

Zach, Global Data, Tokyo – volunteers across the globe in Singapore, Hong Kong, Princeton and New York. He volunteers as an English teacher to students with mental and physical handicaps, with an organization called Palette. "We all learned a lot from each other. There are borders between people of different backgrounds. When you break down these borders, you grow," Zach says. "It's inspiring to connect with the world."

Cristiane, Sales, Sao Paulo – tutors a group of students with Cidadão Pró-Mundo, a local NGO. "We believe that more than learning a new language, they are expanding their access to culture, education, and to the job market," Cristiane says. "The return we get from individuals and charities we work with, whether we provided them a fun afternoon or created them new opportunities that will have a lifelong impact."

Madison, Global Data, New York – a musician who offers her talent in music…and painting park railings. She refurbished a railing in Riverbank State Park, “Every time I ride my bike by the park, I think of how nice it looks now!” She also volunteers with Holiday Express, a traveling band that visits children's hospitals and centers during the holiday season. “Seeing them smiling and having a great time, talking about how much they look forward to seeing us each year--the volunteer work pays for itself!”

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in December 2015.

    Interview

    3 round process for a Java development role. First one was a technical telephonic interview. I flew through it. 2nd was a technical test which I had to complete an assignment, which I completed in time and they called me for a face 2 face at their Dublin office. I had to travel to Dublin for about 2 hours from where I was located. They turned me down after three rounds. Reason given : "Technical assignment was not up to their expectations" which is BS because that shows they didn't even bother to review the assignment before calling a candidate for f2f round. The guy at the interview said he wasn't able to find the eap server which I have used in the assignment. Funny when you say that when the used eap is available open source. That shows they didn't try to run the assignment once in their system before calling for a f2f. No offence. But these are pretty basic things you can do when you interview people.
