Your role:

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.

New business opportunities arise on a daily basis and need to be valued and eventually operationalized.
