Your work here isn’t just a job – it’s a mission. We all play a vital role in energising a greener, fairer future.

Interested in joining a growing multinational business and taking a central role in one of Europe’s leading renewable energy trading teams? We’re looking for a Product Owner, to help us meet our high ambitions for growth and help move energy into a fully renewable future.

The Team

The Business Management (Trading, Analytics & Algos) team is core in managing Centrica Energy and key for implementing the strategy which ensures a sustainable growth.

You’ll be part of a team of Business Managers and Product Owners, where we constantly strive to support and optimize the business, and where all team members add to a positive working environment, characterized by different personalities and skillsets, with great opportunities to make your mark and influence decisions.

The team’s purpose is to be the “right hand” of the business, with the responsibility of supporting our strategy and commercial product implementation. Furthermore, an important role is to ensure operational resilience of systems, process and controls in support of trading activities. The team is characterized by a high knowledge level and professionalism.

The Position 

As Product Owner for the Trading area, you’ll set direction for the products in support of our long-term strategy of being the No. 1 Renewable Energy Trader in Europe and world-class globally. You will get a chance to be involved in the future of energy and work in a vibrant business environment with some bright minds and skilled people looking to re-shape the energy industry and move towards a low carbon economy.

In this role you will:

  • Translate power and gas trading visions and ambitions into a product vision and product roadmap, based on customer needs, business value, and market trends

  • Be accountable for ensuring that the product provides value to both customers and the business

  • Collaborate with the business stakeholders to ensure product backlog priority, transparency and taking on new projects, initiatives and tasks

  • Collaborate with your agile IT development team to ensure development and continuous delivery of increments, for successful implementation

  • Be responsible for alignment and effective communication to deliver a successful product

  • Make data-driven decisions, monitor performance, and iterate on features

For us it’s important that you understand both the “when” and the “why”, leaving the “how” to other roles. We have an international environment, and you will be working across our main geographical locations (Aalborg, Copenhagen and London. Occasionally with our office in Antwerp).

The candidate might be fresh out of university or have some experience. The ideal candidate has studied Economics, Information Technology, Business Administration or similar business-oriented education.

We imagine that our new colleague has experience in managing business development or projects, but it is not a requirement. First and foremost, you take responsibility, you can reflect over strategy, business goals and your product domain. You have good communications skills and can present a plan that brings our strategy to life.
