Venture into the journey towards becoming the best data-driven energy trading company

Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company. Every day, we complete more than 8,500 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most. Our business model is heavily reliant on our use of and work with data, making your role crucial for our business and our traders. To be more specific, in our Data Engineering team, we empower business users, data scientists and data analysts to discover, explore and analyse relevant data. Today, we leverage our proprietary data platforms, where we deliver fast and effective data services, to support our entire trading value-chain and ensure the best possible support for data-driven decision-making. We work closely with the trading teams while managing a short time-to-market and a continuous delivery model.
