Commercial Intraday Analyst (m/f/d)

Statkraft has been making clean energy possible for over a century. That’s what we offer. 125 years of unrivalled expertise in supplying the world with what it needs most. We envision a world that runs entirely on renewable energy. Because in the fight against climate change, we don’t see renewable energy as part of the solution – we believe it must be the solution. With us, you’ll shape a career that is truly forward-facing with many amazing opportunities and offerings to match.

But there’s more work to be done – that’s why we need you to join us.

Working in Energy Management:

Providing power efficiently and reliably is among the core challenges in times of increasing solar and wind energy production. Here, our intraday trading teams are making a vital and exciting contribution. We are active on all relevant short-term markets, being the market leader in integrating renewables in our core markets Germany and the UK. In total, Statkraft manages over 15.000 MW of renewable capacity across Europe, as a result we contribute significantly to the successful integration of renewable energy into the overall energy landscape. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year in continuous operation.

What we do:

Statkraft makes use of algorithmic trading and virtual power plant solutions that automatically balance renewables portfolios, trade and steer asset flexibility in real-time and run proprietary trading activities. These algorithms make millions of decisions per day, send orders to the exchange and steer the physical assets. For us this requires a wide spectrum from fundamental analysis to hands-on implementation as well as occasional manual trading and dispatching, always having a close to 100% automation of the activities at sight.

Your role:

Being close to the heart of Statkraft Continental Dispatch and Power Operations, you will find yourself working in a positive, highly international and professional surrounding. Here you will closely cooperate with colleagues throughout most parts of the organisation such as traders, dispatchers, asset owners, project developers and our origination department. In this role you:

  • Implement strategies for short-term trading and our growing production portfolios outside the core markets.

  • Manage project deliveries and drive business initiatives alongside the operational responsibilities.
  • Represent the energy management departments in cross-functional team setups, in which you will take a proactive or even leading role.
  • As Intraday Power is trading continuously, 24/7 at 365 days a year, you will be part of a business hours day-shift system. You will be expected to assist through daytime standby duties on weekends or public holidays on an as-need basis, preferably from home. Special situations might require presence in the office.

About you:

  • An above average university degree in Economics, Business Sciences, Natural Sciences or Engineering
  • Preferably relevant working experience in energy markets, previous relevant commercial (front office) experience in European power markets
  • Solid background in mathematics and statistics, hands-on coding experience (e.g. Python, Matlab or R)
  • Strong commercial mind-set and high level of intrinsic motivation
  • Strong team player with a high level of commitment when dealing with individual responsibility
  • Flexible, accurate and capable of further developing the business
  • The ability to make accurate decisions under time pressure
  • Fluent in English, good command of German or other languages are a plus
