We’re InCommodities: One of the fastest growing trading companies in the world. The energy market is transitioning away from fossil fuels to renewable energy, and we take part in making that happen! 

At InCommodities, we support the transition by acting as the middleman between sellers and buyers of power and gas - we transport energy across borders where it’s needed, or we store it and sell it later, providing a vital function in the value chain from production to consumption. InCommodities’ business and decision-making are driven by a deep understanding of the energy markets and based on quantitative analysis and rethinking what we do.

Making InCommodities outstanding requires all types of people with different personalities, backgrounds, and approaches to solving different tasks and projects. But one thing connects us: we're fuelled by new ideas and rethinking the status quo.

 

 

Our culture

We value a strong social culture with a high frequency of employee events outside the office. We want to win and be the best in class. You will be surrounded by like-minded people who are bold, honest, ambitious, and the smartest in their field, and who root for one another. We value a genuine sense of team spirit.

To help each other grow, we use honest and constructive feedback and sparring within and across teams. Personality and cultural fit are important parameters for us because we want you to be happy here. The work culture is relaxed; we do not have a dress code or a strict hierarchy for decision-making. You will not experience unnecessary rules, policies, or bureaucratic processes at InCommodities.

In other words, InCommodities is not your average workplace – it’s awesome.
