T. Rowe Price is a global investment management firm that believes its greatest asset is its people.
The large global firm has over 7,000 employees across offices in 16 countries. Despite its size, the culture is warmly regarded as consistent and collaborative. Employees report that no matter where in the world you work, you get the same T. Rowe Price experience. Much of that is due to a happily tenured employee base — many employees have chosen to stay with the firm for over 10 years — grounded in the firm’s clear values of putting clients first; being inclusive; and celebrating creativity, curiosity and independent thought; as well as its emphasis on positioning employees for upward growth.
As the firm evolves, ushering in the future through advanced investment technology is at the core of its strategic plan. There is a wealth of opportunity for technologists at all levels to reshape the way people invest through machine learning, advanced analytics and cyber technology. From software engineers and data scientists to operations and cybersecurity, the cloud-based company is looking to hire technologists with innovative ideas for internal and client-facing applications, digital tools and cutting-edge frameworks and languages.
At the core of a career with T. Rowe Price, you play an essential role in an 85-year-old goal to help clients retire comfortably. As a technologist, that means creating digital products that make it easier for people to do business with the firm. As a human, it’s helping everyone — no matter their socioeconomic status — reach their goals for a more secure future.
