Who We Are
We're Aladdin WealthTech. We are a FinTech company with a start-up vibe but 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 enterprise design team to contribute to our flagship product, Aladdin Wealth. You will be joining a product team with a start-up feel and a global impact.

You will be working with some of the original participants in the hackathon project, financial service veterans and newcomers from technology companies, large and small. 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!
