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.

Life at BlackRock

Wonder what it’s really like to work at BlackRock? Our employees from offices all over the world share their thoughts on what makes our culture so special and unlike any other financial services firm – and what’s kept them here.

Our team is known for

  • Fixing Difficult Problems: The most critical software and hardware issues come through and stop with us. We’re always looking for new solutions and projects to improve the performance and recovery of Aladdin.
  • Disaster Recovery: Hurricanes, snowstorms, hardware failure and software bugs all pose a real threat when there are $Trillions at stake.
  • Collaboration: Both inside and outside APG, we work with all areas of the BlackRock business, from developers to relationship managers to ensure we continue to provide world-class service as we grow.
  • More than just a team: It’s easy to see the Aladdin Product Group as a community rather than just a department. When we’re not solving some of the most challenging in the FinTech sector, we’re organising Hackathons, Team Charity Days, Tech Meetups, running groups, table tennis, chess or video game tournaments and much, much more.

Core Systems Operations (CSO), Site reliability Engineering (SRE) and Business Operations Enterprise Systems (BOES) are teams within APG. We are responsible for maintaining system performance and uptime for Aladdin and other critical applications used at BlackRock and our clients. We’re problem solvers, innovators and the last line of defence against major software and hardware problems, aiming to fix potential issues before anyone ever notices! We’re a rapidly- growing team from all different backgrounds working together on some of the industry’s most complex challenges.

As an analyst you will

  • Rotate across our teams learning our business and our technology stack on a 2 year programme tailored to you
  • Participate in hands-on technical and business work using a variety of sophisticated technologies
  • Work alongside Aladdin Developers, ACS, Relationship Managers and Infrastructure Engineers
  • Contribute to a challenging, team-oriented environment with tremendous learning and growth potential.

Job description

This programme is for candidates in their penultimate year and obtaining their bachelor’s degree or their master’s degree with less than 18 months' relevant full-time work experience.

Our eight-week Summer Analyst Programme is designed to provide students a challenging, meaningful and supportive internship experience that replicates as closely as possible the experience of being a full-time BlackRock analyst. Summer Analyst Programme orientation offers a thorough overview of the firm and the opportunity to hear from a number of senior leaders. Following orientation, interns receive on-the-job training and are given day-to-day responsibilities to contribute to assigned teams throughout the summer. The campus recruiting team also partners very closely with the Women’s Initiative, Multi-Cultural, OUT, and Veteran’s Networks to ensure the Summer Analyst Programmes can learn and interact with our employee networks.

The firm is highly committed to the Summer Analyst Programme and looks to the summer internship as the main pipeline into the Analyst Programme.
