• Who We Hire
  • At Morningstar, great people are our most important assets and essential to our success. We look for hardworking, enthusiastic people to join us in our mission to help investors reach their financial goals.

  • Morningstar People
    People at Morningstar don’t have to be told to go the extra mile. It’s part of who we are. Knowing that everything we do will have an impact on investors drives us to make constant improvements to our methodologies and products. It challenges us to change the investing landscape for the better. In fact, many of us are avid investors who are intrigued by the fundamentals of the world’s markets. That helps us see through the eyes of our clients to develop the great products they really need.

    Backgrounds We Look For
    We seek smart, driven individuals who can contribute expertise gained from a variety of past experiences. Our staff of industry specialists includes PhDs, MBAs, and a number of professional designations including CFA charterholders. But you don’t necessarily need a business degree or a finance background for every role at Morningstar. We prize both creativity and analytical ability; a varied, interesting background gets our attention. You’ll find people at all levels of the company with degrees that range from Russian literature to history, English, and psychology.

    Core Skills
    It’s more important to us to find people with the abilities that will help them thrive within Morningstar’s culture. We look for applicants with an outstanding academic record, varied work experience, and leadership potential. We value independent and creative thinkers who have excellent communication skills. An interest in or experience with investing is helpful, though not essential. Regardless of your personal interests, you should be guided by a strong desire to change things for the better.

  • A Variety of Roles
    Morningstar jobs require all types of talents. We regularly hire for positions including designers, researchers, salespeople, developers, and project managers. From our first days in business, we’ve been an early adopter of new technologies and believe in building great products in-house. We maintain a staff of hundreds of technologists who help us continue to push technology’s boundaries to find new and better ways to serve investors.

    Start Your Career Here
    Morningstar has been recognized as a great place to begin a career. College graduates can kick off their career in the Morningstar Development Program with a view into different aspects of our business. Program participants have the chance to contribute to our next generation of great products for investors and interact with company leaders, all while gaining hands-on experience. We also offer paid year-round and summer internships so that students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs at colleges and universities worldwide can gain on-the-job experience.

    Diversity and Inclusion
    "Great People" is one of Morningstar's core values, and when it comes to our people, our differences are our strength. We cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment, and value new ideas and alternative perspectives. We respect the thinking that comes from our employees' unique backgrounds, skills, perspectives, and experiences. We're a global company with employees who reflect the diversity of the clients and markets we serve. As investors benefit from maintaining diverse portfolios, Morningstar is strengthened by the contributions of our diverse workforce.

    Diverse Perspectives
    People who are smart, hard-working, curious, and creative excel at Morningstar. Our people are passionate about our mission to create great products that help investors reach their financial goals. Because we value new ideas, we hire a diverse range of individuals with unique backgrounds, skills, and experiences. The fact that we don't all think the same way encourages lively debate, inspires thought leadership, and helps us create better solutions for our clients. Our people are the foundation of Morningstar's culture and make this a great place to build a career. Every person here matters and contributes to our success, so we welcome their unique perspectives.

    Transparency is deeply rooted in Morningstar’s culture. As such, we feel it’s important to share statistics from our most recent filing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as they relate to the diversity of our U.S. workforce.
