Hasan Qazi
Senior Quantitative Analyst

After attending an educational trade floor tour of Powerex, I decided to apply for a position as an energy trader.  The strongly collaborative environment and high performance standard were immediately apparent.  As a new trader, I’ve been consistently appreciative of training and professional development efforts from a team with a deep industry knowledge base.  The workplace culture is a bonus – it’s a good indicator when colleagues choose to spend time together outside of the office.

My definition of a great workplace has growth opportunity, talented people, and interesting work.  Powerex meets all the criteria and more.  I have been working at Powerex since 2007. From IT intern, to tier 3 operation support, to developer lead, I am a great example of growth opportunity at Powerex. Throughout the various roles, I have met many talented people and together achieved success on challenging yet rewarding projects.  Powerex is the place to be if you enjoy working hard and have lots of fun doing so with the team.

Owen Lo
Business Intelligence Developer Lead

Within the last year I joined Powerex after changing careers, which can be daunting in its own way, but the team here has made that transition seamless for me with dedicated training and mentorship. So far I have found the work to be exhilarating and in an accommodative and supportive environment. Every day has different challenges. You will be kept sharp, motivated and constantly thinking on your feet - there is absolutely nothing mundane about our work! With regard to the staff, my coworkers are decent smart people and management does a great job at involving the entire team in the direction and aspirations of the company. You always feel like your efforts are valued - I honestly couldn’t be happier working here.
