Energy -  it is required everywhere, from building things, transporting them or just to read a book at night. Trayport’s suite of products makes it frictionless for large producers and consumers of energy to trade with each other regardless of country borders. It is through our platforms that about 70-80% of all European utilities trades take place. Part of that is developing innovative software solutions that contribute significantly to the transition of greener energy. We are a small company that makes a big impact in the world!

Based in Vienna, we are now looking for a Head of Operations to join our Management team.
