We are on the mission of enabling the energy transition. Energy Battery Storage Systems are a key element of the future energy infrastructure. They play an essential role in managing the volatility of renewables by providing the energy system with the much-needed flexibility.

With our AI-powered fully automated optimization and trading platform for large-scale battery storage, we ensure that energy is stored when it is abundant and released into the grid when it is needed. At the same time, by actively trading electricity, we counteract strong price fluctuations that green energies entail. Figuring out how storage provides the best value to the electricity grid and the highest returns to asset owners is how we accelerate the transition to a clean energy future.

Take an active role in shaping our optimization and trading platform for grid-scale battery storage as a Senior Python Software Engineer Trading (d/f/m) by building our optimization platform end-to-end, implementing our algorithms or onboarding and mentoring your colleagues.
