Global Voluntary Markets

Apply for this job

Today, companies are constantly urged to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. By trading in a wide variety of renewable energy products, 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 Renewable Energy Certificates Trading Analyst to join our business and the extremely dynamic market we operate in, and to embark on a journey with us towards a better tomorrow.


Turning opportunities into solutions – that’s the specialty of STX’s Front Office. Our team works across various domains, including electricity, renewable gas, carbon offsets, biofuels, and energy efficiency. We engage with clients in different markets and countries on a daily basis, and it’s our job to understand their needs and translate them into effective, efficient solutions. To maintain STX’s position as market leader in the fast-changing environmental commodities field, we are continuously capitalizing on new opportunities and optimizing our offering.


“The environmental commodities market is growing rapidly. STX is proud to be one of the leading firms in this incredibly dynamic space. Though that doesn’t mean there’s room for us to be complacent. On the contrary: in this fast-changing, competitive market, you always must be on top – and ideally ahead – of your game.” – (Jens Schumacher, Managing Partner)


As a Trading Analyst on the Global EAC desk, you will play a crucial role in the trading analysis team. Your primary responsibility will be to understand, interpret and forecast regulatory developments, fundamental variables and other market factors which could impact the Global renewable energy certificates markets and EAC (I-REC) prices. Next to this, you will analyze counterparty behaviors and internal transaction data to understand and forecast trading behavior of counterparties. You will work closely with the trading and our regional teams and use a variety of analysis and forecasting techniques to provide insights and recommendations that support trading strategies and decision-making. Your contribution will help the team identify new trading opportunities, spot market inefficiencies, and ultimately increase revenue for the company.
