We excel at what we do. But unlike others, our success is not just the result of hard work and professional expertise: we apply a uniquely people-centric approach to trading. Our accountants support this collaborative way of working as part of the Finance team.

More about the job

As the world moves towards a more sustainable future, ACT Commodities capitalizes on this shift. We trade energy efficiency certificates as well as physical products on the environmental commodities market. We are a ‘go for gold’ company and we’re looking for those who want to carve their path, kick down doors, and make a difference. But we are also so much more than fast-paced and forward-thinking… we are a family, and we firmly believe that we are better together!

 

Founded in 2009, ACT is now rapidly expanding, which translates into challenges on the technical and functional areas, making Business Intelligence a fast-paced, challenging environment to work in.

As a Business Intelligence Engineer you will help build ACT's data backbone through gathering, structuring, and combining our data in order to create reports & dashboards and give in-depth insights into the business. You need to have a helicopter view of the business, be able to prioritize our backlog for each sprint, and independently handle a request from ideation through testing, release, and post care. You will also support the other departments with creating and running reports, as well as providing reporting training to end users.   

 

Key Responsibilities

  • Creation and updating of PowerBI reports and dashboards;
  • Migrating reports from Excel and other legacy tools, to the Data Warehouse and PowerBI platform;
  • Communicating well with non-technical colleagues and helping turn their business requirements into new kinds of reports;
  • Clear communication of insights and observations gleaned from BI data using reports and charts;
  • Willing to maintain, extend and improve the Data Warehouse;
  • Management of current SQL queries for optimization and requested changes.

Encountering new situations on a daily basis

I started working at ACT because I wanted to be in a working environment that would really allow me to grow. I certainly got what I was hoping for! Ever since I joined ACT, every day has been different, my learning curve has been very steep because of it. 

 

You learn as you go and I’ve experienced first hand that if you succeed, everybody is genuinely happy for you. Everybody is willing to work hard and make the best out of every day. We are target driven, we are ambitious but always together as a team. That means when a target is accomplished, we also celebrate each other’s success. This teamspirit keeps everybody going!

Reach higher, do better and learn more

ACT is rapidly growing and evolving, offering ample opportunities to expand your knowledge and hone your skills. This has allowed me to continuously challenge myself in ways I hadn’t even foreseen. For example, within the first six months of joining ACT New York, I relocated to Amsterdam to lead a global project implementation.

 

This was an area I hadn’t had a great deal of experience in but management had faith in me and I had faith in the rest of the team. We all grew together through the experience. If you are willing to reach higher, do better and learn more, there really aren’t any barriers at ACT.
