About this role

About BlackRock

At BlackRock, we are all connected by one mission: to help more and more people experience financial well-being. Our clients, and the people they serve, are saving for retirement, paying for their children’s educations, buying homes and starting businesses. Their investments also help to strengthen the global economy: support businesses small and large; finance infrastructure projects that connect and power cities; and facilitate innovations that drive progress!
This mission would not be possible without our smartest investment – the one we make in our employees. It’s why we’re dedicated to creating an environment where our colleagues feel welcomed, valued and supported with networks, benefits and development opportunities to help them thrive!

Responsibilities and basic requirements
We are looking for talented and disciplined developers to help us take our industry leading asset management platform to the next level. The work is varied, fast pace and challenging. You will receive broad exposure to both the technology and the business. Our goal is to improve user experience and meet our business commitments while continually modernizing and improving platform performance and scalability.
While the role is development focused, design, deployment and maintenance require teamwork across a broad scope, spanning regions and seniority.

Beyond technical skills, we require:

Experience working in a globally distributed team

Excellent communication skills in English, both written and verbal

A track record of taking the initiative to solve problems, working independently with minimal direction.

Required technical skills

At least 1 years of professional experience with GoLang and a decent understanding of its building blocks

Good understanding of Object Orientated languages

Working knowledge and experience of building and deploying distributed systems

Working knowledge and experience of message streaming using Kafka

Working knowledge and experience of software development life cycle best practices including test-driven development, unit testing discipline, agile development, and CI/CD strategies

Experience with multi-tier application architecture, micro-services, and streaming systems

Optional

Experience in the finance industry or knowledge of financial products/markets

BA/BS in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience

Experience on Unix-like operating systems

Experience with cloud technologies like Kubernetes, Docker, AKS

Experience with DevOps tools like Git, Gitlab CI, helm, terraform

Experience with Splunk, Grafana, Prometheus

Experience with relational algebra, and SQL-like languages

BlackRock is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to age, disability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation and other protected characteristics at law

Our benefits
To help you stay energized, engaged and inspired, we offer a wide range of benefits including a strong retirement plan, tuition reimbursement, comprehensive healthcare, support for working parents and Flexible Time Off (FTO) so you can relax, recharge and be there for the people you care about.

Our hybrid work pilot

BlackRock’s current hybrid work pilot is designed to help you experience the best of both worlds: the opportunity to connect with colleagues in person and the flexibility to work remotely, with greater time to focus on what’s important to you. In line with local health guidance and regulations, employees are generally expected to work 3 days in the office and 2 days from home (on average) each week. For some business groups, more time may be required in the office, while greater flexibility may be in place for others. Our “One BlackRock” culture means you’ll be supported to collaborate with your new colleagues while bringing your full self to work – wherever you are.

The health, safety and well-being of our people will always be our top priorities; we will continue to monitor local conditions and health advisories in making decisions about our work environments.
