Job Description:

Who are they?

My client is a leader in the international wholesale energy markets. The company manages a portfolio of assets which give it the ability to source, supply, transport, store, blend and convert physical commodities around the world. These capabilities enable them to deliver essential asset optimisation services, risk management and wholesale market access to the them and its third-party customers, helping them to realise the value inherent in their asset portfolios.

They are active in the electricity, natural gas, LNG, LPG and environmental products markets. It is one of the largest wholesale market traders in Europe for power and gas and one of the leading marketers of gas and power in the US.

What the team does?

The Front Office IT Delivery team looks after the Traders and Analysts. They provide a wide range of solutions for both commercial decision support and more tradition 'IT' based activities, such as interfacing with third party systems for control/processes. Generally, they build in a Microsoft stack working closely with the traders/analysts wherever possible. The team is streamlined and the work ranges from a couple of weeks to several months in length. Equally they often find themselves multitasking to fit in the more immediate demands. Some of the work requires excellent engineering skills, while other a better grasp of what drives values for the commercial desks. The team encourages empowerment and accountability which sees them employ a flat organisational structure with an emphasis on getting the job done. The environment is friendly - and as a team we work to support each other.

Most systems are distributed solutions utilising Angular, WebAPI, C# and relational databases (Oracle or SQL Server). We still have WPF/WCF around as well, as well as various queue technologies.

What they are looking for?

They have an opening for someone talented to join our commercial-facing Front Office IT Delivery team.

Ideally to thrive the skills they are look for are:

1 The ability to understand a system or problem quickly, working in a relatively fast-moving environment. Being able to fill in the gaps in conversations can be a useful skill.

2 They often need to define system architectures, whether it be enterprise or tactical. Once they have defined a solution they then need to communicate and work with various teams, you will also need to develop the solution! Understanding system building blocks and concepts, combined with experience can help here.

3 An understanding of what's needed to make a system supportable is valued. They do support some of their developed system, having the aptitude to offer this, and the ability to build robust systems is a core skill.

4 Be interested in technology and what's new, breaking it down to what it can offer in their environment.

5 They find themselves looking at new problems and technologies that they don't always have the skills to managed - so the drive to pick up new things (with support and training) is encouraged.

6 Willingness to undertake analysis and testing in certain situations - and where possible de-risk this with test automation.
