We're Aladdin Wealth Tech - a FinTech group with a start-up vibe and some big-time ambitions. We are part of BlackRock, the largest asset manager on the planet ... that is also a $1B annual revenue software company.

We believe in the power of BlackRock's world-class portfolio analytics AND the importance of the human connection between advisor and client.

We are looking for an experienced developer to join a team focused on the Advisor Center experience.

Our development team is spread across the US, UK, and India.

We are a team with a start-up feel and a global impact. You will be working with a diverse team of software engineers, designers, and product managers to produce high-quality web tools and services for the wealth management industry in the US and EMEA. 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 are still learning how to best meet the needs of advisors here and our product roadmaps reflect a mix of evolving our core tools like 360 Evaluator while creating new tools focused on Alternatives and Sustainable Investing. We like our mash-up of FinTech start-up and market-leading financial services company ... and we think that you might like it, too!
