Engineering at BlackRock
Engineering team and processes

At FutureAdvisor, our engineering team operates on a three week sprint cycle. Prior to the start of each sprint, we go through a sprint planning and grooming exercise. Once the sprint has started, we meet as a team in a daily stand up to ensure we are completing tasks and moving them through the sprint as efficiently as possible. We use GitHub to conduct code reviews and complete pull requests. Engineering teams work closely with Product managers and design to spec out product features.

Technical Challenges

We are a robo advisor platform that has both B2C and B2B2C business models. This brings huge technical challenges in building high-quality applications that can be customized for each partner as well as creating a platform of reusable features (that can be turned on/off depending on the partner’s needs). We also build applications and tools for financial advisors and client operations teams that allow them to understand the state of their clients, onboarding information, document management, etc.
