Data is Energy: Overview

EDF Trading is a data business too. Trading is transitioning into a data driven business. High quality data and the agility of the analysis are becoming the differentiator. EDF Trading has a leading footprint in the European energy markets and wants to monetise and optimise data as an asset.

Commodities markets and the European energy space in particular is complex and has a huge appetite for data. Power production from renewables in response to weather, capacity limitations across borders, storage optimisation modelling... these are just some of the complex data opportunities we trade on every day.

We're looking for talented people who share our passion for data to join our team and seize these opportunities with us.

Position purpose

We need quality data that is centrally managed. We rely on business analysts to centralise our data, streamline processes and maintain governance. We look to them to lead on best practice and think beyond the present.
