    Our story

    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.

    Our beliefs

    BlackRock’s long-term success depends on our ability to fulfill our mission of creating better financial futures for our clients. As we pursue that mission, we are guided by our culture and a set of principles that ensure we never forget what we stand for – to help more and more people experience financial well-being. That is our ultimate purpose.

    We seek to hire people who believe in this pursuit and our values, known as the BlackRock Principles:

    1. We are a fiduciary to our clients. Our clients’ interests come first.
    2. We are One BlackRock. We work collaboratively in a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment united by Aladdin.
    3. We are passionate about performance. We are lifelong students continually innovating to better serve our clients and improve our firm.
    4. We take emotional ownership. We feel a deep responsibility to hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards of excellence to serve our clients who entrust us to help them achieve financial well-being.
    5. We are committed to a better future. We are long-term thinkers committed to running our business sustainably and responsibly for all our stakeholders – our clients, our employees, our shareholders and the communities where we operate.

    Our promise

    BlackRock knows a thing or two about investments. That’s why we know the smartest investment we can make is in you – our employees. We’re committed to creating an environment where you feel welcomed, valued and supported through employee networks, benefits and development opportunities to help you thrive. Because we also know the more future-ready you become, the more future-ready we become.

    Invested in our purpose: Since our founding, we’ve held the belief that finance and technology go hand-in-hand. Whether you’re evolving our investment operating system, Aladdin, or turning data into meaningful insights for our clients, you’ll leverage industry leading technology to innovate and amplify our ability to deliver on our purpose of helping more and more people experience financial well-being.

    Invested in our people: While working at BlackRock can feel like a start-up, you’ll have the stability and resources of an established company. We care about your physical, emotional and financial well-being, and that’s why we designed a holistic benefits package to support you in all aspects of your life.

    Invested in our culture: We want you to bring your whole self to work – including your diverse perspective – ready to collaborate and engage with technologists from a multitude of backgrounds and teams across the globe.
