If you have a passion for the Trading & Supply space in Information & Digital Technology, then here’s a great opportunity to contribute towards the energy transition as part of one of the largest trading companies in the energy industry.
Where you fit in
Shell Trading and Supply is the world’s largest energy trader. It combines a global network of trading companies, industry leading shipping and maritime capabilities, and an integrated network of supply and distribution activities to act as the central integrator for Shell. Our trading capability, deep market knowledge, global portfolio and end-to-end integration within Shell creates opportunities to deliver value for our customers and for Shell across Upstream, Downstream, Integrated Gas and New Energies. Through our main trading offices in London, Houston, Singapore, Dubai and Rotterdam we trade crude oil, natural gas, LNG, electricity, refined products, chemical feedstocks and environmental products. With more than 125 distribution terminals and hundreds of outside supply points in around 25 countries, our supply and distribution infrastructure are well positioned to make deliveries around the world. Trading is at the center of the Shell’s Energy Transition and Decarbonization plans, working closely with New Energies and the wider business to develop lower carbon solutions, driven through technology and data. To accelerate our ambitious delivery goals, we are looking to expand our team of Trading & Supply Information and Digital Technology subject matter experts (SMEs).
You will be part of a team which has deep expertise and experience within specific Trading & Supply business or technical domains. You will usually spend a good amount of time (at least a couple of years) in a specific area – for instance Gas Trading, or Risk Reporting etc. – to establish yourself. You will understand the nuances of the business, systems and processes within the area and cultivate trusted partnerships with the stakeholders and colleagues in the area. Through this deep knowledge and experience, you as an SME will establish yourself as anchor in that space and then for a substantial period, continue to be part of that area contributing to all facets of IT from partnering with business stakeholders on shaping new ideas to consulting with our IT operations team to ensure stable operation in production systems.
What’s the role?
As an IT SME – Trading & Supply, you will touch the whole spectrum of IT delivery – identifying and defining the business needs of the users and stakeholders, guiding solution design to meet those business needs in line with both, business and IT, strategic roadmaps, ensuring seamless fit between processes, training, and solutions, protecting and exploiting value realization of product and information management investments, all in close alignment with the natural team (i.e. group of team members from different parts of Shell working on a common project/product delivery). You will also play a leadership role within the natural team through coaching, teaching and supporting other team members, participating in the delivery team leadership discussions, and for those coming with technical expertise, serving as the Tech Lead for the domain. Each SME is an active participant in delivery activities based on their capabilities and the product / portfolio team needs. You will report to the T&S SME Leads within the Software Engineering Capability Center.
Your further accountabilities include the following:
You will also be expected to focus on a specific product or project where you will play both a key delivery and strategic role. You’ll thrive as the expert and go-to person in the area for many of the design, strategy and other ongoing activities and initiatives alluded to in the accountabilities list above.
