Aladdin Client Services - Summer Analyst - Summer 2019

BlackRock was founded by eight entrepreneurs who wanted to start a very different company. One that combined the best of a financial leader and a technology pioneer. And one that focused many diverse views on a singular purpose: to create a better financial future for our clients - companies, governments, and millions of individuals saving for retirement, their children’s educations, and a better life.

Our Placement Program give you a chance to work closely and add value to a specific team, set and complete objectives and be exposed to the culture and ethos at BlackRock. These positions give you an excellent opportunity to develop new skills and gain valuable experience within the Asset Management industry.  During the placement, you will also have the opportunity to find out more about our internship or our full time opportunities.

Every day, the Aladdin Client Services (ACS) Team tackles the hardest, most sophisticated problems in FinTech. We utilize our in-depth understanding of Aladdin, our clients’ businesses, and the investment management process to provide world-class customer service to our rapidly-growing, global client base. We all studied different things and bring unique skills and experiences to the table, but we all share a serious passion for solving tough problems and keeping our clients happy.

Our team is known for

Being product experts with a reputation for getting the job done. We…

  • Deliver exceptional customer service to users, every time

  • Solve difficult problems by providing innovative solutions

  • Collaborate with others because we know we can do more together

  • Figure out what needs to get done and then do it

  • Learn every day, question everything, and embrace change

  • Foster a fun, innovative team atmosphere

    ACS has a long history of providing top talent to the Aladdin Business and broader BlackRock community – we are laser focused on giving Analysts the skills that they need for a successful career at BlackRock.

    As an analyst you will

  • Answer questions and help our clients run their businesses on Aladdin: You will take phone calls, emails, and chats from industry practitioners at some of the world’s most 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. We will also give you the opportunity to leverage the tech skills you already have. Know Scala? Help us fine tune our metrics offering! Passionate about Java script? Build self-service tools for our clients!

  • Educate users, leverage service insights, and relay user experience feedback to improve the customer experience and our product: We believe that the best customer service is proactive, not reactive. We are students of our own data and engage with our clients to keep problems from arising, rather than dealing only 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.
