As one of the largest asset managers, Blackrock needs to be careful around how it enters and exits investments so as not to move the market or erode its alpha.
BlackRock also needs to have tools to manage the increasing size and scale of our trades effectively. It also needs to apply electronic trading to markets where it’s not yet prevalent.
Blackrock’s answer to this problem is its unique Electronic Trading team and its implementation of electronic trading strategies.
We use a highly customized version of a third-party vendor product to implement trading signals and strategies for the Equity and Fixed Income / FX trading teams.
This is a high profile group where we are in a position to directly impact the performance of our funds by providing tools for traders to make intelligent decisions on trade timing and strategies.
Working market hours and sitting on the trading floor, Electronic Trading team members are very close to the excitement of the markets.
We are seeking a new member to join the Electronic Trading team to not only help us support and enhance our electronic trading application, but also to continue to develop innovative tools for our traders.
We are looking to expand across additional asset classes as well as expanding the depth of our analytics. The job requires a strong technical background as well as a basic understanding of financial markets.
The role reports to the Director of the team.
