As a member of the ASL, you will be working with financial modelers, climate scientists and ESG experts to build the best-in-class climate models and software for the firm and its clients, to manage risk associated with climate and ESG in asset management.

The engineering team is to develop the APIs, UIs and data solutions that deliver these exciting new products to investors at BlackRock, the many financial institutions who use Aladdin and importantly the communities they serve.

The product you will be working on will be delivered as part of Aladdin, a technology platform serving many asset managers and financial institutions. Your work will be visible not only to BlackRock but also to the large community of Aladdin users.


You build and manage a global, high performing engineering team within ASL.

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.
