About this role

The AI Labs
Since our founding 30 years ago, BlackRock has brought together great minds to drive innovation. From the beginning, we have been leveraging technology for insight and efficiency to make our business better and to help clients realize the objectives they desire. In 2018 BlackRock accelerated innovation and technology again with additional investment in artificial intelligence and data science and all the potential they represent.

The AI Labs was formed to act as a central hub with a firm-wide remit to solve strategic business challenges for the firm by bringing to bear our expertise in machine learning, artificial intelligence, data science and optimization. Our mission is to combine human and machine intelligence to revolutionize asset management.

We are a hybrid research and product team and have a responsibility to drive towards commercial impact in the form of alpha generation, operational efficiencies, and cost reduction. Building on the success of systematic investment teams with a history of leveraging machine learning at BlackRock to create alpha, the goal was to apply these same techniques throughout the business.

Job Description:
As a full stack engineer, you will sit on a product team developing products that are based on proprietary statistics, machine learning, optimization, and AI methods and that are of strategic importance to the firm. You will partner with our product managers, researchers, and stakeholder teams to develop application logic and infrastructure that facilitate the use of our models and analytics within a larger, integrated workflow. This includes implementing the methods being developed by the researchers in production grade code and enabling access via a variety of access patterns (APIs, files, libraries, etc.). You will also be responsible for creating automated tests of all software developed, including unit and integration tests.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop front end applications according to specifications provided via wireframes.
  • Develop front end single page application business logic using Typescript, React, NextJs, Redux, etc.
  • Structure and style pages according to spec using HTML, CSS, SCSS, etc.
  • Develop backend application logic described in technical documentation produced by our researchers and architects.
  • Test all code developed using robust unit tests and automated integration tests.

Qualifications:

  • A Bachelors or Master’s in computer science or similar software engineering focused major.
  • 5+ years of professional experience designing and implementing full stack applications.
  • Proficiency in structuring and styling pages using HTML, CSS, and modern styling technologies such as SCSS, SASS, etc.
  • Proficiency in JavaScript and Typescript in the context of frontend application engineering.
  • Strong understanding of the JavaScript, Typescript, and React ecosystem, including React, Redux, NextJS, NPM, Webpack, Babel, etc.
  • Proficiency in Python in the contexts of backend application development, automation, and infrastructure development. Knowledge of Python in the context of quantitative computing is a big plus.
  • Understanding of testing in the context of software engineering, including unit testing, integration testing, performance testing, etc.
  • Background in finance will be looked upon favorably but is not a requirement.
