While obtaining his computer science degree from Vellore Institute of Technology, Pranav attended many campus recruitment events, and BlackRock stood out—emphasizing not just its culture but also its incredible capabilities and work ethic. Joining as an intern, Pranav was given ownership of a major project—overhauling BlackRock’s tax calculation methods—and he’s been with the firm ever since.
Ever since his first day at BlackRock, Pranav has felt firm in his bearings, surrounded by helpful colleagues eager to answer questions and provide guidance. Always learning and taking part in exciting events—like BlackRock’s numerous hackathons—Pranav spends his days using cutting-edge technology to analyze data and track accounts and projects of enormous scale.
“BlackRock’s structure is very flat—one of my first meetings was with a senior director from New York, and the conversation flowed as smoothly as if he were just another guy that worked next to me—it’s an amazing culture.”
“BlackRock is a premier technology organization. If you’re coming to interview for tech, be prepared to answer in-depth technical problems—you’ll be asked to code and demonstrate your computer science fundamentals.”
