About this role
The mission of the Global Product Group (GPG) is to bring even greater innovation, discipline, and focus to BlackRock’s investment product line by better aligning client businesses, investment businesses, and corporate functions in the design and execution of product strategy.

In addition, the Global Product Group partners with our client businesses globally to ensure consistency in our product campaigns and messaging.
