How should Bloomberg software engineer plan career path?
I’ll join Bloomberg soon as new grad software engineer (Didn’t get Google return). But actually from very beginning I’m super inclined to join BBG because this opportunity to open door to finance/Wall St for me, and I like quantitative a lot.
I’ll try my best be great financial software engineer. But for tech roles in finance, pure SWE seems always be supporting/second class citizen; while quantitative/math+ financial domain seems more like core role, right? Plus I like both engineering and mathematics, my career goal would be quant /data scientist/ quant developer, etc.
1. What teams within BBG could be fit if my goal is to learn engineer + quantitative + finance?
2. How can I further my education in finance and math? (Already have CS master). The best I could think if those part-time financial math master offered by NYU or Columbia? But is this necessary ( Or Would internal training be enough?) Do you guys have friend around in BBG who enrolled in such program?
3. I guess those real quant at top institution (like citadel) will still need PhD in math? So my CS background + BBG experience + finmath degree still not enough?
If this is not working well for me, I’ll plan to back to pute tech. But I’m always into some domain, general tech role is less fun for me.
