Graduate Program overview

IT or Algorithmic Trading

You can choose between two tracks: IT or Algorithmic Trading. We are committed to your development, so no matter the track you apply for, we aim to create a personalized program that fits you, your competencies, and your interests. The overall goal is to support your development and speed up your understanding of our business model, and that is why your rotations will go across the organization and not just within the track description.

Read about the two tracks below. 

What to expect

Our graduate program runs for 18 months. During these 18 months, you will have three rotations across our business. You are hired in a full-time position, where most of your time will be in the teams working on value-adding projects alongside some of the best minds in our industry. 

Below you can see what a program can look like. 

You will be challenged and take responsibility from day one. We ensure that valuable projects and initiatives are lined up for each rotation – all designed to support and speed up your development. We invest heavily in your professional and personal growth during the program - look forward to 1:1 coaching sessions and different courses. 

You will have plenty of time to get on-the-job training, and we have ensured there is dedicated time for everything else, such as social activities to get to know your colleagues. 

Meet our graduates

I really like the level of autonomy that is present here from day one. Even though you're new, you are given the freedom to do what you think is best in the projects, you're are working on. 

- Jesper Pedersen, Graduate - Algorithmic Trading

Moving to a new country can be very time consuming, but the flexibility at InCommodities allowed me to both do my work and have the time I needed to find a new apartment and get settled. That really helped me and made the transition a lot easier. 

- Lourenço Vasconcelos, Graduate - IT

Some might say that you should specialize from the start and find a classical position. But for me, doing the graduate program, I allow myself to work in different teams, making me more certain in my choice in the future about where I want to specialize.

One of us

After 18 months and having successfully completed the program, you can expect to possess in-depth knowledge about our business and the InCommodities value chain. Professionally, you will become a well-rounded ‘InCommodities specialist’ with the skillset you need to start in your new role in one of the fastest-growing energy trading companies in the world!

Depending on your competencies and interests, you could end up in a position ranging from Quantitative Trader to Portfolio Manager or even Software Engineer. We aim to find the perfect role for you within our growing team, where you will be able to leverage your learning and experiences.

Insights that might take years to gain. 
Even though we have a lot of initiatives in line and ready for you, some of the responsibility to speed up your development lies with you, as you need to engage in the business and network with stakeholders.
