About this role

About us

BlackRock is one of the world's preeminent asset management firms and an outstanding provider of global investment management, risk management, and advisory services to institutional, intermediary and individual investors around the world. Besides offering a range of investment solutions - from fundamental and quantitative active management approaches to highly efficient indexing strategies - BlackRock also provides direct access to its market leading analytic models by onboarding clients to its Aladdin Platform, an end-to-end portfolio management software solution.

The Financial Modeling Group (FMG) is responsible for researching, implementing and maintaining most of the analytical models powering Aladdin. Portfolio managers of BlackRock and clients of Aladdin like pension funds and insurance companies rely on FMG models to understand the risks of their portfolios and execute trades based on the valuation our group provides.

Your role and responsibilities

Join us as C++ Developer in FMG Budapest to craft the next generation of our single security analytical modelling engine using C++ 17 and newer with the help of colleagues across India, Hungary and New York! You will design new APIs and build new applications to provide clients with novel ways of using our models.

Take part in improving existing analytical systems by replacing existing functions with new implementation and craft a more scalable and modular architecture by refactoring.

We work in an agile team with heavy focus on quality of work validated through automated testing, and we value effective and clean code. Every line we write passes peer review, where your insights are much appreciated.

During your work you'll consult teams in FMG as well as other groups in BlackRock to learn about the business use-cases we serve and how they could be recreated more efficiently on the new platform.

Our analytical models are the heart of BlackRock, having them delivered in a scalable and reliable way is a cross team effort valued by all involved parties.

Your team

Security Analytics Infrastructure (SAI) is among the youngest teams in FMG with presence in New York, Budapest, Gurgaon and Mumbai.

We develop scalable, high throughput, low latency, analytical software for valuating fixed income products like swaps or bonds. We also coordinate FMG's CI/CD pipeline and continuously improve quality control.

Challenging the status quo is our norm, and we excel in building modern systems and onboarding state of the art technology like cloud native software systems. We're pioneers of FMG and early adopters of new tools and industry standards. We're a diverse team with different ideas working towards the same goal.

Our dominant programming languages are C++ and Python.

We are passionate about what we do and hope you are, too!
