BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a global investment manager and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients – from grandparents, doctors and teachers to large institutions – turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. We are building a culture of innovation, curiosity and compassion, one that enables every employee to make an impact.

Software engineering

At the heart of BlackRock is a world-class technology system called Aladdin. It is an unmatched operating platform that unites all the information, people, and technology needed to manage money in real time and at every step in the investment process. Unlike other financial firms, technology at BlackRock is a profit center, not a support function, and stands on its own as a fast-growing business. Developers work in teams focused on specific components of Aladdin and use innovative new technologies to build solutions for BlackRock and many Aladdin clients.

Aladdin client services

Become an Aladdin Ninja

Every day, the Aladdin Client Services (ACS) Team tackles the hardest, most sophisticated problems in FinTech. We utilize our in-depth understanding of Aladdin, our clients’ businesses, and the investment management process to provide world-class client service to our rapidly-growing, global client base. We all studied different things and bring unique skills and experiences to the table, but we all share a serious passion for solving tough problems and keeping our clients happy.

Portfolio analytics

Create and deliver analytics to help solve business problems

The Portfolio Analytics Group (PAG) within BlackRock Solutions creates and delivers Aladdin’s analytical capabilities to help the firm and our clients understand and manage their investments and risk. Our group leverages financial expertise, technical skills and knowledge of the investment process to implement scalable solutions. Analysts develop a comprehensive understanding of finance, clients, and technology; they learn to navigate all groups at BlackRock to solve business problems.

Technology support

Maintain the stability and efficiency of the Aladdin platform for BlackRock and our clients

Aladdin is relied upon by dozens of the world’s largest organisations to manage their business around the world, 24/7, and no one knows Aladdin like us. The Aladdin Product Group (APG) consists of system administrators, software developers, incident managers and project managers focusing on maintaining the stability and efficiency of the Aladdin platform for BlackRock and our clients. APG is a fast-paced team operating in a dynamic environment and we’re constantly looking for new ways to improve our efficiencies, processes and automation.

Internal audit

Support our global businesses to meet strategic, operational and risk management objectives

Internal Audit provides the unique opportunity to learn about the full breadth of BlackRock’s businesses and functions. We perform project-based reviews to provide objective opinions, advice, and insight to help improve our operations and best serve the Firm’s clients. We operate a global team which engages with all of BlackRock businesses and operations.
