Senior Legal Counsel

Senior Legal Counsel

Today, companies are constantly urged to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. By trading in a wide variety of sustainable energy products and certificates, STX enables businesses to achieve this goal. In doing so, we contribute to a more transparent environmental commodities market and, therefore, a greener world. We’re looking for a Senior Legal Counsel to join our business and the extremely dynamic market we operate in, and to embark on a journey with us towards a better tomorrow. 


The operations function forms the backbone of any company. At STX, the Operations team, which comprises IT, Finance, Human Resources, and Middle Office, works closely with all other teams and desks to ensure that STX continues to perform and deliver at an exceptionally high level. As a critical partner in the business, Operations also guarantees compliance with all the relevant rules and regulations. Moreover, the Operations team works collaboratively to make sure that STX has the necessary structures and processes in place to grow and develop further in new products, industries, and markets.


“Our ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment is definitely one of the strengths of our legal team. Other advantages include our collaborative spirit and the fact that we’re very inclusive. There’s lots of diversity in our group – we have team members from Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, and the United States. Our biggest challenge is to keep up with STX’s ambitious global growth plans for the future. While this is a tough task, it’s also what makes our work as exciting as it is.” – Anita Soos, General Counsel
