For our office in Düsseldorf we are currently looking to hire

Interns in Short Term Trading and Optimization (m/f)

As part of the Norwegian state owned Statkraft Group, Statkraft Markets GmbH is the 6th largest power producer in Germany by capacity. Since 1999 we have been an active trader of power, gas, renewable and emission certificates and a broad range of structured products. Lately we have become one of the leading players and service providers in managing distributed energy generation. For us the ideas of our 450 committed and ambitious colleagues make the difference. Share our passion for renewable energy and be a part of tomorrow’s energy world.

The Team

You will be part of a professional team that manages Europe’s largest wind portfolio and over 2,000 MW of flexible generation capacity in Germany, UK, Turkey, and Albania. We are an active trader in all physical short-term power and gas markets in the respective countries.

The energy landscape is changing rapidly and so is our business. Our young and international team continuously improves the optimization tools, forecasts and trading strategies using data science techniques: data mining and visualization, developing hypotheses, testing statistical models and employing machine learning/artificial intelligence algorithms. All this happens in close collaboration with our traders, power plant operators and other stakeholders like project and business developers. New business opportunities arise on a daily basis and need to be evaluated and eventually operationalized. We are the first point of contact for technical/economic requests concerning our assets from project development, legal, grid operators and our generation arm.

Your Role

Your internship will be in the centre of these front-office activities and you will be given responsibility from day one. Over the course of your internship you will become familiar with many aspects of the energy market, data structures and the trading business, and in particular how this business is adapting to technologies such as wind, solar, batteries, and hydro. The ability to work independently is important for us. However, you will always be supported by a business expert as we are enthusiastic about your projects and their commercial contributions. Moreover, there is always room for exploring new ideas and business. Our interns are highly qualified employees and you will actively contribute to the further development and growth of Statkraft Markets, working closely with various departments in Germany, Norway, Albania, Turkey, and the UK.
