BlackRock

 

We think beyond what’s possible. At BlackRock, we’re building the investment technology platform of the future – and you can help.

BlackRock values new ideas, innovative thinking and growth through collaboration. As a technologist at BlackRock, the challenges you’ll tackle will be complex and the impact you’ll have will be vast – you’ll help move markets, build economies and support the retirement of millions of people around the globe, including firefighters, teachers and more.

In 1988, our founders set out to create a better asset management firm – one that was purpose-driven, focused on clients and risk management, and driven by data and technology. Our breakthrough Aladdin® platform unified trading, risk management and reporting onto one system connecting the information, people and technology needed to manage money.

Over the years, we’ve evolved from an eight-person start-up into a global company that’s trusted to manage more assets than any other investment manager. We’ve always been laser-focused on delivering long-term value for our clients and our shareholders.

And because we’ve purposefully invested in developing our platform, our technology and our people for more than 30 years, our solutions deliver portfolios that help more and more people experience financial well-being and, ultimately, better futures.

 

 

Diversity & Inclusion

Be yourself. Be valued for it.

We have a responsibility to help people around the world – from all walks of life – build a better financial future. So our workforce must reflect the diversity of our clients, in order to bring a wealth of perspectives and insights to solve their unique, complex challenges.

We’re a global firm with offices across more than 30 countries, but we operate as “One BlackRock” – and every single employee plays a critical role. No one group or location is more important than another. We thrive on collaboration, mutual trust and respect, and challenge ourselves – and each other – to collectively raise our game.

We already know that the best solutions result from the ideas and contributions of a diverse team of partners, and that more diverse teams tend to outperform homogeneous ones. At BlackRock, we’ve redefined what “best” means. For us, the best person for our team is someone whose contributions will fill a specific need or gap, expose a blind spot and allow the team and firm to perform at its best. That’s why you’ll work with technologists who come from a multitude of backgrounds with diverse sets of skills and capabilities.

But it’s not enough to focus solely on building a diverse workforce. We take it one step further and ensure that each and every employee feels included – that they belong. BlackRock has more than a dozen employee networks to create the space for our people to meaningfully connect with one another and continue to strengthen our culture.

Our DEI initiative and progress against our goals are communicated regularly to our Board of Directors. In 2020, we achieved our goal of 30% female representation in senior management by 2020.

When inclusion and diversity unite together, they drive outstanding performance and innovation. It’s good for our people, and it’s good for business. And that’s a fact.
