STX Group is a global organization at the forefront of the dynamic market of environmental commodities trading. Today, companies are increasingly incentivized to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to creating a greener world. By trading in a wide variety of renewable energy products and developing a more transparent environmental commodities market, STX enables businesses around the world to achieve this goal. We’re looking for a Trade Operations Specialist to join our business and the extremely dynamic market we operate in, and to embark on a journey with us towards a better tomorrow. 

We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. However, we are not able to sponsor work visas.


The operations function forms the backbone of any company.

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. 


“Trade operations takes care of all the transactions after the agreements are signed. We ensure that the trade flow is correct, accurate and in line with the company’s guidelines, from A to Z. Essentially, we’re STX’s gatekeepers. The fact that new products, issues and transactions arise regularly makes our job both exciting and challenging. We’re tasked with guaranteeing that the transaction process goes as smoothly as possible and that potential risks are mitigated. Speaking of “smooth”, it applies to the way our team operates too. It’s not often I’ve come across a team that works as quickly, efficiently, and accurately as trade operations does.” – Melania Bojescu, Head of Trade Operations
