Technology has always been a core component of BlackRock’s “DNA.”
Over the years, the smart use of technology has distinguished BlackRock by supporting leading risk management capabilities and driving operational consistency and efficiency around the globe. The Aladdin trading and risk management system, used internally at BlackRock and by BlackRock Solutions clients, enables customers to manage over $5 trillion in financial assets. Aladdin is central to our technology strategy, unifying BlackRock by providing everyone with a common language and a central point of reference for our investment activities globally.
The Aladdin and Application Engineering teams within the Aladdin & Technology group use the latest technologies to design and develop applications that make up the firm’s investment management platform. The systems support the full lifecycle of the investment management process, from quantitative risk management to order entry, trade routing and settlement.
Technologies used include sophisticated web services, Java applications and C++ servers, tied together over a real-time messaging system and connected to a large and highly complex database. Analysts join small teams that develop specific parts of the firm’s investment management platform, working closely with senior developers and managers, and are expected to become intimately familiar with the financial products and investment management business, regardless of whether their focus is software development or business analysis.
Career paths within the Aladdin & Technology group include continued hands-on technical and product work as Senior Developers or Senior Business Analysts, as well as management and architecture positions. There are opportunities to transition to entirely different roles within the organization.
Unlike many larger organizations, BlackRock highly values hands-on technical and business work and candidates who are interested in a career where they can continue to make individual contributions as they advance. These candidates will find many exciting and rewarding challenges in this group.
The Aladdin & Technology Group hires professionals with industry experience and undergraduates just entering the workforce. Industry professionals come from a wide range of backgrounds.
