Aladdin Client Services
Every day, the Aladdin Client Services team tackles the hardest, most sophisticated problems in FinTech. We utilise our in- depth understanding of Aladdin, our clients’ businesses, and the investment management process to provide world-class service to our rapidly-growing, global client base. We all studied different things and bring diverse skills and experiences to the table, but we share a serious passion for solving tough problems and keeping our clients happy.
What will you do as an analyst?
Answer questions and help our clients run their businesses on Aladdin: You will take phone calls, emails, and chats from industry practitioners at respected investment institutions. You will solve problems that matter, making direct and measurable difference to our clients. In the process, you will build technical, industry, and relationship skills.
Use technology to solve problems: We will teach you the skills you need to succeed, such as maneuvering relational databases and parsing product logs. After just your first few weeks on the desk, you will be using these skills to help clients and product teams make Aladdin better.
Educate users, demonstrate service insights, and relay user experience feedback to improve the client experience and our product: We believe that the best client service is proactive, not reactive. We are students of our own data and engage with our clients to keep problems from arising, rather than only dealing with issues that are brought to our attention.
Work on a global team, with a local presence: Our support model follows the sun – if a market is open somewhere in the world, so are we! You will get to work with teams across the world, while still engaging with a vibrant local team.
