APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 31st, 2018 

Invenergy is an innovative company in the energy/utilities field that develops, builds, owns and operates wind, solar and thermal energy solutions around the world. This is a really interesting role because it includes aspects of finance (contracting & pricing), data science (analysis & interpretation), and relationship building (communications & business judgment). The analyst is responsible for settling commodity transactions which is the process of reconciling the difference between the energy purchased by energy suppliers from generators /producers and the energy sold to the customers. This is the market for energy as a commodity -- super interesting! (There are lots of markets, not just for stocks and bonds.) So if you're interested in financial analysis, trading, energy and the environment, economics, data & analysis -- all these skills and interest could flourish in this position!
