Drive hyper-growth in a VC-backed, corporate energy trading and data platform; disrupt the archaic commodities market through delivering great leads to our sales team
London, highly competitive salary and commission

Tallarium is a rapidly-growing London-based capital markets/data start-up developing an AI-powered system for institutional energy trading. Currently, the bulk of the large-scale B2B derivative trading is done via 20-year-old systems like messenger chat, telephone, and Excel spreadsheets where data is siloed across teams and functions. We build data and trading infrastructure for derivative trade execution and risk management, allowing for faster, and far more accurate critical trading decisions. Working with us, you can be a part of disrupting and modernising global commodity trading.

We already provide services for trading desks at multiple Fortune 500 companies and have been working with the Super-Majors since the early days. We are currently a team of 15, with strong academic backgrounds and experience at the world’s top institutions.

Recently we received backing from two institutional VC investors and a major strategic industry player. We are transitioning to the next phase of growth and looking for exceptional people to join our team

Our priority is to build our customer user base. To help us deliver that growth, we are looking for a Sales Development Representative who will help us build our pipeline of leads and opportunities, and will therefore be instrumental in us delivering our ambitious sales targets. This person will work with the rest of the sales team, learning about Tallarium's products, our sector, and our clients. They will become an expert and will be able to hold their own in conversations with traders from around the world.
