We're looking for a pro-active, energetic, commercially minded and ambitious trader who would like to join the Trading team at STX Group's headquarters in Amsterdam.

There are many different certificate or quota systems across the globe that are designed to speed up this transition. STX Commodities is positioned in the center of this environmental commodity market for both certificates and physical products.
