The Role: 

Our Data Specialists are primarily responsible for providing timely, accurate, and comprehensive data for our clients by extracting information from a variety of source documents and rationalizing it to Bloomberg taxonomies for comparability. In addition, they are responsible for handling inquiries from clients about the data if issues arise or explanations are required. Junior Data Specialists may also provide support for internal clients that consume the data so they are required to collaborate with multiple teams across the firm, which makes the role diverse and provides an opportunity to learn. As such, this role is a meaningful step towards becoming a Senior Data Specialist.

  •  Perform quality control to ensure data accuracy by inspecting Bloomberg data values and comparing them to source documents
  •  Provide customer support for users of Bloomberg products such as the Professional Service, News, Enterprise Solutions, and Bloomberg Law by resolving inquiries in a timely manner
  •  Procure content to support best-in-class coverage of the data set
  •  Report on results of on-going operations and projects, as required


You’ll need to have: 

  •  A bachelor's degree (preferably in Finance or Economics, for Data Management only)
  •  Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  •  Proficiency with Microsoft Applications, particularly Excel
  •  Strong attention to detail and high degree of demonstrated decision-making and problem solving skills
  •  Interest in and aptitude for technology
  •  Customer focused mindset

We’d love to see: 

  •  Business fluency in English and native in Chinese 
  •  Exposure to Bloomberg products such as the Professional Service
  •  Project management skills and/or experience
  •  Working knowledge of VBA and/or SQL
  •  Familiarity with mark-up languages such as XML, SGML, JSON, YAML, and/or HTML
