Going, going, gone! Spot auctions fully automated

Newsletter March 2019: automated spot auctions, Innovation Hub registration, VisoMinds getting (even) smarter and more

Going, going, gone! Expand your short-term trading automation with our new interface for spot auctions

Periotheus has been expanded with an exciting new function – a user interface with integrated connectivity for spot auctions. With it you can now easily automate participation in day-ahead and intraday auctions. We currently support the EPEX ETS interface, and Nord Pool Elspot will soon follow. Have a look for yourself:



Auction offers can be entered directly in Periotheus, can be calculated there or can be imported. The offers are placed on the exchange and the results stored in time series. The resulting trading contracts are created and can be transmitted to the ETRM system via interface. In this way, the system can fully automate participation in a spot auction.

Optimise your auction participation now. Contact us for further information:

VisoMinds never stop learning

We value our employees’ continued development and are committed to developing the full potential of each and every one. We are a team of curious, driven people who want to keep improving ourselves. As a result, several VisoMinds are currently taking part in a variety of continuing education programs. Over the next few months we will take a closer look at these colleagues and their studies and will find out how continued learning carries their careers and the company forward.

Because our commitment to education starts at the top, that’s where our story begins as well. Our Managing Director Jürgen Mayerhofer is a very familiar face to many of you. But did you know he’s also a student? Jürgen is halfway through a one-year online program from the prestigious Stanford University. But the Stanford LEAD Corporate Innovation Certificate is no ordinary online program. Through a highly selective application process only the most capable, most motivated participants are selected.

In small, diverse teams – so far Jürgen’s peers have included people in R&D, sales, procurement, consulting and a startup CEO, from France, the Netherlands, UK and Brazil – they work through courses in strategy, finance, innovation, leadership and more. The practical nature of the coursework allows Jürgen to bring in genuine challenges from the office. With rich feedback from peers and the top-level faculty from Stanford Business, he has then been able to implement the results. From an improved five-year business plan to an initiative in strategic leadership and an honest evaluation of our innovation culture, his coursework has had a direct and immediate impact on VisoTech.

Of course it’s not easy. All participants have demanding full-time careers, so team calls and coursework generally get done on evenings and weekends. “But it’s worth all the effort”, Jürgen affirmed, “if it means I can help us take VisoTech to the next level and strengthen our position as the innovators of automated energy trading.”


Our team just keeps growing

We welcome software engineer Luka Zeleznik to our development team, where he will strengthen the further development of our automated trading solutions.


We are still looking for another software engineer with Python experience, as well as a Python test engineer. Please feel free to share these job openings with anyone who wants to work in a young and innovative company with great benefits and a bright, fun team.


Just as our people never stop learning, we encourage you to continue to learn and develop with us. Join us at the Algo-Trading Innovation Hub or other industry events, take part in workshops and share with your industry colleagues. Together we are shaping the future of energy trading.
