Bloomberg runs on data, and data drives the market. Our Global Data team acquires and supplies this data to our clients. Teams work collaboratively to collect, analyse, process and publish the data which is the backbone of our iconic Bloomberg Terminal - that ultimately feeds and moves global financial markets.

The Role:

As a Bloomberg Global Data Steward, you will play a critical role in extracting and rationalising company financial metadata into Bloomberg taxonomies in accordance with established methodologies, supporting taxonomy policy implementation and delivering on key business objectives in this regard.
In addition to this, you will be responsible for governance of critical data elements and their associated meta-data, as well as setting, maintaining and optimising operational procedures governing this metadata. This input will include standards, guidelines and policies for critical data elements (fields), including meta-data and related reference data. You will also be responsible for supporting a global taxonomy team on key initiatives and identifying trends in financial reporting globally. You will be expected to identify, implement and socialise improvements in operational procedures and workflows globally, using your subject matter expertise to support the team.
Data Stewards also provide support for internal and external clients that consume the data as a result you will be required to collaborate with multiple business partners, making the role diverse and providing an opportunity for continuous learning.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Develop, maintain and support meta-data management policies and procedures such as field relationships, and apply these policies retrospectively within the Bloomberg taxonomy environment;
  • Extract and rationalise data to Bloomberg taxonomies in accordance with established methodologies;
  • Maintain and enhance existing elements of the Bloomberg Taxonomy including hierarchies, field relationships, formulas and grids, operational workflows and enhance formulaic approaches;
  • Codify market conventions and/or data relationships into business rules for data validation;
  • Support key global business initiatives through the development of new fields, from testing to production, and promote new taxonomy functionality, and to optimise processes and/or improve the quality and discoverability of the taxonomy;
  • Perform incident management, from troubleshooting and root cause analysis to overall problem management;
  • Identify trends in financial reporting globally, taxonomy developments and digitisation of data;
  • Collaborate with multiple internal partners (business, engineering, sales, tech-ops) and project owners to establish consensus on best practices; and
  • Utilise subject-matter-expertise to set and maintain methodologies and identify process and product improvements
  • Train new hires and offer input and expertise into training materials
You’ll need to have:

  • A bachelor's degree, preferably in Accounting and/or Mathematics/Statistics and/or Computer Science
  • Fluency in English
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Solid understanding of SQL and/or Python
  • Knowledge of financial markets and familiar with international financial reporting standards

  • Eagerness to learn and collaborate
