Business Analyst

Do you want to contribute to the dynamic energy market? Can you convert functional issues into technical solutions? And do you want to work with a talented and motivated team on smart and innovative solutions that help energy companies process data efficiently?

As a business analyst you design a state of the art web based enterprise application, Vertex, with us. You do this both externally, with the customer, and internally, with the team. You write specifications that our software engineers can use to build software and you write queries, scripts and business rules to configure the software correctly. You operate at the intersection of business, IT and data management. Your area of work is the entire energy supply chain, from pricing to energy purchasing and from forecasting to the optimal use of flexibility in the supply process (for example, controlling electric batteries or wind turbines). You work together with roadmap and implementation teams, but you also consult with customers to ensure that everything integrates properly and the customer gets the most out of our collaboration.

What are you going to do?

Working at Energy Essentials should be fun and we do not have strict job profiles. The activities are primarily organized around the talents of our employees and the roles we play in various projects. In this way we bring out the best in people and we continue to learn from each other, previous experiences and new insights.

You will help us build and design the new energy transaction platform of the future Vertex. With Vertex, market parties can facilitate the transition within the energy market and set up complex processes. For example, Vertex offers solutions to support and automate processes such as strategic purchasing, delivery, pricing, back testing, messaging, balance maintenance and invoicing. This improves decisions through insight and algorithms (dashboards & trading). Vertex can organize data in such a way that it can be used for smart solutions (decision models) whether or not automated, such as controlling and optimizing sustainable means of production and/or consumption (including windmills, solar parks and batteries or algo trading) or setting up of dashboards for human decision making. Security, business rules, traceability and availability are essential here.
