BlackRock was founded by eight entrepreneurs who wanted to start a very different company. One that combined the best of a financial leader and a technology pioneer. And one that focused many diverse views on a singular purpose: to create a better financial future for our clients - companies, governments, and millions of individuals saving for retirement, their children's educations, and a better life.

Being part of BlackRock means being part of a community of smart, ambitious people. People who value diversity of thought, perspective and background, who believe everyone has a voice at the table. So, whatever your background, whatever and wherever you're studying, there's a place for you here.

Our eight-week Summer Analyst Programme is designed to provide students with an exciting, supportive and fun internship experience, which mirrors life as an Analyst at BlackRock. You'll have real-world responsibilities throughout the summer, in addition to professional development, networking and social events.

Our Technology teams build and support Aladdin, the technology platform that powers our firm and the investment industry as a whole. We utilise sophisticated technology to develop applications, deliver custom solutions and ensure a superior end-user experience.

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 centre, 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.

Technology Support

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 Core Systems Operations team, consisting of system administrators, software developers, incident managers and project managers focus on maintaining the stability and efficiency of the Aladdin platform for BlackRock and our clients. CSO 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.

Aladdin Client Services

Every day, the Aladdin Client Services 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 customer 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

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.
