We are Tibber, the energy company that wants you to use less energy. Whaaat? That’s right. We’ll get back to that. Yes, we are by definition an energy company, but we’re more techy than most. How and why you might ask. Well, a third of our employees are actually working on developing products and solutions that can help you use energy in a smarter way and a lower cost – all with the help of cool fancy tech. Good for our customers, their wallets, and the planet.

Our growth rate has been truly amazing, and still, we’re just getting started. With millions of smart devices connected to the Tibber platform (like electric vehicles and smart thermostats), we have one of the most unique portfolios trading energy on the market.

Tibber is on a path to dramatically disrupt the energy landscape with residential flexibility at the edge of the grid. Tibber was the first in Europe to deliver frequency control reserve at a commercial scale with an aggregated pool of electric vehicles and we are on a mission to build Europes largest residential virtual power plant.

The Trading team is responsible for short term power and flexibility trading of the Tibber portfolio. This includes developing and implementing algorithmic trading solutions that automatically balance our portfolio, trade and steer asset flexibility in real-time and run proprietary trading activities. Additionally, the team is responsible for developing and managing demand and price forecasts in order to commercially optimise Tibber’s portfolio in the relevant energy markets.

What the role entails:

  • Develop robust optimisation algorithms for a wide class of flexible assets such as electric vehicles, home batteries and thermostatically controlled loads (TCLs).
  • Develop decision and execution algorithms for flexible assets in relevant power and flexibility markets.
  • Contribute to building trading strategies that maximise the value of Tibber’s unique attributes and assets.
  • Continually contribute to the development and engineering of data pipelines necessary for algorithmic trading.

This is you!

  • Experience with the European short term power markets is a must.
  • Deep experience in developing trading optimisation models.
  • Experience at an intraday power trader is a big plus.
  • Weather forecasting domain experience is an asset.
  • Excellent university record, e.g. in mathematics, physics, computer science or business with strong quantitative focus.
  • An analytical, curious, and commercial mindset with meticulous attention to detail.
  • High diligence and quality in coding and model development, preferably experience in Python.
  • Ability to solve analytical problems in limited time when necessary.
  • A strong ability to turn analysis into actionable trading strategies.
  • Proactive and independent way of working, high reliability, strong communication skills.
  • The desire to work in a dynamic and high paced start-up environment.
  • A drive to be a complete team player who enjoys leveraging the team’s skills in order to strive towards shared goals.

Tibber offers:

  • A way to change the landscape of one of the most important industries on the planet.
  • A possibility to learn a lot and push the barriers of what you think is possible.
  • An autonomous culture in a scale-up adventure with the possibility to grow personally and professionally.
  • Competitive terms of employment and excellent flexibility.
  • A place to work where laughter every day is a guarantee.
  • A set of colleagues who are as passionate about their areas of expertise as you are.

The Tibber Mindset

Being on a mission to fundamentally change an industry also means being prepared for the unexpected. Tibber is a startup in the true sense of the word, which means we're on a journey of constant change ourselves. We work passionately with sustainability and a circular approach, both with our own products and in the entire ecosystem that is affected by everything we do. The well-known fact that all people are different, and far from everyone is a morning person – are the very reasons why we choose to work with flexible work hours.

Starting out with two passionate founders in 2016, we're now 280+ people working for Tibber in our offices in Stockholm, Førde, Berlin, Amsterdam and Helsinki, and with that number growing each week, we’re only just getting started. Through 2022 we will expand to new markets, and we are thrilled to be backed by investors like Balderton Capital, Eight Roads Ventures, Founders Fund, and Schibsted.

Join our Tibber Tribe, it will be an adventure!
