Infrastructure Lead, Agile

Scroll to content

We are looking for a seriously talented, senior level Agile Infrastructure Lead to join our teams in Espoo, Finland or Oslo, Norway. Your role is key for the continued success of our market leading trading and clearing and settlement platforms.

Espoo, Finland is our technology hub where we build the next generation of systems to trade power across Europe. Our business operations and trading desks are located at HQ in Oslo, Norway. We want to delight our customers with fantastic user experiences, services and a platform that exceeds their expectations.

Our markets run 24/7/365 – and that means it’s tough, challenging and exciting. We don’t expect you to know or understand the complexities of power trading on day 1, but you have a passion to learn and you’re all about getting stuff done.  You also understand what high-availability and robust infrastructure solutions mean in practice and the challenges associated excite you.

As an experienced professional in the infrastructure domain you have the opportunity to use your experience in creating and implementing infrastructure strategies that help companies maximize their business. You are technical enough to be thrilled by getting the opportunity to work in an environment where .NET Core, Azure, Infrastructure as Code, Kubernetes, Consul, DevOps and Agile are commonly used words. As an Agile Infrastructure Lead in Nord Pool we want you use just enough of your time on hands-on tasks to understand what your team is doing and maintain your credibility as a doer. After all, your main task is to lead others to do the right things at the right time in the right way. 

What will you be responsible for?

  • Together with your colleagues you will define and implement an infrastructure strategy to expedite a transition from dedicated network infrastructure to multi-cloud infrastructure.
  • Create (when needed) and report on vendor performance metrics for guaranteed service delivery and to identify areas requiring improvement.
  • Liaise with stakeholders across the extended organization to utilize available Internal IT and support resources and practices to improve the current resource utilization.
  • Liaise with internal and external Cyber/Information Security professionals to ensure compliance with company/national/EU/industry specific compliance frameworks.
  • Support the CyberSecurity Manager to monitor practices and processes to guide the implementation of Information Security policies for strategic process improvement and compliance.
  • Change initiative processes, promote and manage alliances within this agile, lean organization.
  • Secure continuous improvement of business processes to meet customer expectations and to secure robust infrastructure operations.
  • Work hand-in-hand with software architects/developers and stakeholders to continually exploit infrastructure in the most innovative fashion to underpin our business ambitions.
  • The delivery of excellent IT service.
  • Lead a highly skilled and experienced multi-site team.

Ideally you bring proven experience in

  • Running 24/7/365 IT service operations.
  • Infrastructure change/development and maintenance projects.
  • A leadership role in operations of complex IT infrastructure.
  • Vendor management and related financial tasks (budgeting, cost and investment management).
  • Understanding of Agile processes, preferably through working in such an environment.
  • IT initiatives, ITIL framework.
  • Maintaining a strong knowledge of (Software and business) process improvement.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the power market is an advantage but not a requirement as long as there is an interest to learn. 
  • Strong and curious technology mindset.
  • Service leadership orientation, strong team building skills and stakeholder management. 
  • High level of energy, drive, enthusiasm and commitment.

Anything else?

At Nord Pool we value our culture and strive toward creativity so, above all else, we look for likeminded professionals who are passionate, driven and creative yet possess enough humility to be a delight to work with.

This role will work closely with Nord Pool’s CDO.

Together with Integrity towards Excellence

This is our value statement and it is what guides us in everything we do, from working with customers to working with each other.

We are a medium-sized international company with colleagues from 23 different countries. They include experts in programming, power markets, trading, laws and regulatory frameworks, to name just a few. We are a trusted partner and advise customers across the globe on creating efficient, simple and secure power markets. This involves continuous communication and a visible presence, not just in Europe but globally. We are big enough to be a serious player on the European energy markets but small enough for people to know each other on first name terms.
