London, highly competitive salary, uncapped sales commission, and equity 

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 front office terminals and real-time data to be a one-stop shop for all energy market data needs, hence 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.
