And are you looking to develop your programming skills, while acting as the crucial link between trading and the rest of the organisation? Then grab this opportunity to become our new trading operational analyst, where you will be working side-by-side with our power traders!

Here’s what the job entails

In the role, your primary function will be to develop and maintain numerous business tools, acting as the glue that holds the trading teams and the rest of the organisation together.

During your first 3-6 months, your focus will be on participating in daily operational shifts as well as performing operational analysis work and developing business tools to optimise various processes. The programming will mainly be in Python and SQL, but the position will also include some VBA programming. After 3-6 months, your time will mainly be spent on developing business tools and automating processes.

As our new trading operational analyst, you will join our Power Trading Operations & Systems team, where our primary role is to provide daily support to our power trading teams as well as contribute to business development.
