Why join Yggdrasil 

At Yggdrasil, we see the world as our playground. We dare to be different; we explore the impossible. Our focus is power trading, and we have a true data-driven approach to everything we do. We do not own assets or have customers to bill or handle. 
IT is the backbone of our business, and the trading strategies state how we trade. Data rules and the best P&L graph clears the table. We like to call that “algo before ego.”

We have a true startup attitude with a flat organization. We benefit from strong values emanating from what we do, and how we work. 

We like to think that this is not a job; this is an adventure. By joining us, you get to be part of our exciting journey.
