Job Description

Hello there!

We're Aladdin WealthTech, a FinTech company with a start-up vibe and some big-time resources. We are part of BlackRock, the largest asset manager on the planet-that is also a $1B annual revenue enterprise software company. We create products that help financial advisors and their clients build financial plans and portfolios to achieve some of life's most important moments: buying a home, sending your kids to college, and retirement. We believe in the power of BlackRock's world-class portfolio analytics AND the importance of the human connection between advisor and investor.

We're looking for an experienced Product Designer to join our growing design team, focused on the world of portfolio models and direct-indexing ... two of the hottest and potentially most disruptive areas in the world of investing. You will be joining a team with a start-up feel and a global impact. Our experiences provide financial advisors with an integrated suite of applications that range from portfolio construction, analysis, diagnostics, and proposal generation. You will be working with internal stakeholders, business owners, front- and back-end engineering teams, as well as our primary and secondary user groups. We work hard, enjoy each other's company during and after work, and are passionate about the potential of our technology to improve financial outcomes for clients. We like our mash-up of FinTech start-up and market-leading financial services company-and we think that you might like it, too!
