Energy markets never sleep. As a trader, we work around the clock across Europe. Our team is made up of talented people from all over the world who drive the energy revolution every day. We optimize client portfolios in the intraday market and monitor and control trading algorithms. Through our trading, we make Europe's power grids more stable, enabling the continued expansion of renewable energy.


Head of Trading



In data analysis, we primarily support the trading department. We develop tools to help traders make decisions, gain important insights from market data and make predictions from key market data using machine learning. In addition, we discover, develop and oversee trading strategies and drive the automation of our energy trading in general to increase the efficiency and success of our business processes.

IT Development

Our development department, consisting of backend and web development, is divided into several teams that focus on the development and support of the trading systems. We use the Java and Kotlin programming languages. We develop our in-house software, which enables us to almost completely automate trading and for the most part only monitor it. Our traders are the "customers" of our team and are only one door away. This proximity allows us to respond to requests and make adjustments in real time, which contributes to exceptional flexibility. 


Our team represents the internationality of Optimax Energy, with talented members from various European and Asian countries, including Germany, Kosovo, Russia, Ukraine and Sri Lanka. We communicate together in English and this multicultural collaboration not only gives us the opportunity to work on varied projects, but also broadens our personal and professional horizons.

Finance & Controlling

No matter how turbulent times may be, with our comprehensive insight into all company processes, we always maintain an overview of all accounting and liquidity-related issues. This guarantees that we in the finance department can identify and address all risks in good time. Regardless of whether it concerns data or processes - we scrutinize things and are constantly on the lookout for potential improvements. Every day, we receive and process a large amount of information, which we prepare in a recipient-oriented manner as required. It is essential that we look at issues from different perspectives, anticipate problems and make well-founded recommendations for action to the management. We are the interface between various internal and external stakeholders.

We also take care of the office and business equipment, both in the office and in the home office, and handle office management. Furthermore, we support and advise the entire team on a wide range of issues and concerns, right from the relocation process, where we take care of administrative and tax matters, assist with the daycare search and prepare documents for the authorities.
