STX is a market maker in environmental commodities (e.g., carbon credits, biofuels, and renewables), trading in products that contribute to reducing CO2 emissions. The HR Business Partner will support all people-related challenges and globally implement performance management and succession planning practices that foster further growth.
About STX Group
Urged on by regulations, shareholders, and corporate responsibility standards, companies are constantly working on reducing their carbon footprints. Market maker STX supports these businesses by trading various renewable energy products such as renewables, biofuels, and carbon credits. This way, the company invigorates the environmental commodities market’s liquidity, transparency, and availability. STX believes this makes a small – but necessary – contribution to decarbonizing the global economy.
As a specialist trader in environmental commodities, STX does not build wind farms, operate solar parks, or execute large energy reduction projects. But every day, they strengthen the reliability and professionalism of these markets and increase confidence in sustainable investments. STX’s business model has helped build trust in renewables markets and stimulate the transition away from pollution and the depletion of natural resources.
STX is a global company with its headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in New York, Singapore, Lyon, Hamburg, and Gothenburg. The scale-up currently employs about four hundred bright minds and expects to more than double that number in the next few years. As part of its transition towards a mature international corporation, STX is establishing a strong company culture and professionalizing all people processes.
