During my studies, I had various positions in a bank with the ultimate dream of being a stock trader. But I found out that I needed a little more action, which made DC the perfect match for me.
Why I wanted to work for DC
I had heard about the passion and culture in DC among the employees and found that very inspirational. Safe to say, it did not disappoint.
What I do
I am the manager of our Intraday Asset Trading desk which means that I am responsible for trading, development and recruitment within this area. Trading entails optimisation of our renewables portfolios across Europe, which is done 24/7. We can trade with most countries very close to actual delivery of the physical power (down to 5 minutes), making it a very volatile market.
My typical workday
Normally I have meetings about our trading performance and how we continue the development of the trading. This involves strategies, trends, weather scenarios and analyses. I also prioritise time with our stakeholders - especially our Automated Trading team to keep on developing our algorithms, as we have seen a much larger impact of algorithms in the market in recent years. Besides that, I am of course trading alongside the rest of the team.
The best part of my job
I thoroughly enjoy working with passionate and very skilled people that are willing to go the extra mile to win.
