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.

  • Represent the energy management departments in cross-functional team setups, in which you will take a proactive or 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 occasionally 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:

  • Relevant working experience in a (energy) trading environment, ideally front office experience in European power markets
  • An above average university degree in Economics, Business Sciences, Natural Sciences or Engineering
  • Strong background in mathematics and statistics, hands-on coding experience (e.g. Python, Matlab or R)
  • High level of intrinsic motivation and strong commercial mind-set
  • Team player with a high level of commitment when dealing with individual responsibility
  • Flexible, accurate and capable of further developing the business
  • Fluent in English, good command of German or other languages are a plus
