I’ve been incredibly lucky and honored to have interned at Bloomberg L.P. for the last 5 summers. I’ve been able to learn firsthand what real-world software engineering looks like and have created and rolled out consumer-facing features.
My work this past summer with Security Operations touches on sensitive topics to report on online. That being said I’m happy to say that I was able to overhaul a major aspect of our physical visitor security system and that my improvements were well received by the team!
Returning to Communication Channels this summer, I worked on Bloomberg’s Message platform to bring message threading in an attempt to tame rowdy inboxes. As a full-stack project, I worked with multiple teams including MSG frontend, MSG backend, & UX, in addition to key stakeholders.
I was embedded within the internal and customer support department to re-develop a telephony service application. Working with users, I was responsible for the UI/UX development in addition to functionality. In 8 weeks I delivered a functioning prototype that was ready for redeployment in production applications.
My second summer I was placed in Bloomberg’s communications department within the proprietary messaging platform team (Instant Bloomberg). Working with a mentor, I developed two client-facing features which are in production. I also delved into the core app functionality to fix bugs and improve testing suite performance by over 25%.
In my first year at Bloomberg, I worked within a small team that had identified a break in their development workflow. I worked with them to implement a financial validation layer that connected their development pipeline into one continuous process and is still in use today.
