Trading, automation and analysis
Our trading unit covers gas, power and green certificates. But trading isn’t just about looking for that one great deal anymore. Our traders are now executing thousands of trades each day. To support this, we are evolving into tech-driven trader hybrids, working shoulder-to-shoulder with quants, analysts and meteorologists – using data, modelling and technologies, such as machine learning and AI, to our advantage.
Tech and trading go hand in hand. More than a third of our employees work in Technology, and our software developers and data engineers have become fully integrated on the trading floor. Our use of technology is continuously evolving. We work with distributed systems, microservices and asynchronous messaging and push changes to production every day, quickly and effortlessly. Using modern services and tools such as Robotics, Kubernetes and OpenShift, we ensure the best possible foundation for automation and agile solution delivery. And did we mention we process tens of thousands of trades each day and process more than one million rows of market data every minute in peak hours? Not too shabby.
