Developers at RWEST work in the heart of our commercial business.
Our team develop and manage market data and evaluation systems for the trading business at RWE Supply & Trading. We work closely with analysts and trading desks to provide solutions and support in key areas such as profit and loss, position reporting, deal handling automation, market data visualization, model prototyping and trading systems.
What’s the deal
As part of this brand new 18 month programme you will complete 3 rotations each lasting 6 months. Each rotation is in a different location London, Essen & Swindon, so you can experience the full breadth of what being a developer at RWEST entails because it really is quite different for each location.
However, regardless of which location you are in, you will be embedded within the trading team who you are supporting. This means you will sit close to our business and help them with daily decisions by providing the best service you can.
You will also have support from an expert developer who will guide you and ensure you leave your mark on the team. Therefore we can assure you that your communication skills will develop so that you can form strong collaborative relationships.
Once you have completed your 18 months, your IT stack and your business knowledge will have vastly developed. The different IT languages you will be competent in will have grown, as will your cultural awareness of working in each of our locations.
This will serve you well for the role & location you ultimately end up in.
The advantage of our programme
Working in each location, you will work with, and learn from, different expert developers who have changed the IT landscape within our organisation.
