Contracting at Bloomberg

From: Dee Holtsclaw 
One of my coworkers said yesterday that all of the recent candidates for
senior-level contracting positions were, shall we say, extremely
disappointing. There are still 3 or 4 contractor slots unfilled so if
anyone is interested in spending a year or two in NYC ...

These departments need strong C++ skills and familiarity with AIX,
Slowaris and/or Linux (most of the code runs on the first 2). It's
upgrading and maintaining transactional applications -- stuff like
making stock trades, analyzing advertisements, IOIs and stuff like that.
