Ex­pe­ri­en­ced Software Developer to help enable the green energy tran­si­tion

Are you passionate about your craft? Do you see yourself working with business-critical systems within the renewable energy domain? And are you a team player looking to join a devoted team which sets the technical bar high? Then you might be our new colleague!

Software development in a team that is focused on being in the forefront of the renewable energy transition

Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company that specialises in short-term power and gas trading and offers balancing, optimisation and hedging services to energy producers and suppliers. Every day, we complete more than 8500 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most.

Our Software Development team shapes the business by building systems that give DC competitive advantages. You will be part of a development team that directly supports the energy transition currently transforming Europe’s power markets. The team builds mission-critical asset control software that balances and optimises batteries and wind turbines in the power markets 24/7. We get to dig deep in the domain of trading and renewable energy while having a real impact on how best to solve problems with code and technology. Our edge stems from our excellent algorithmic trading capabilities, and you will take part in connecting assets to the energy grids via algos. Sounds exciting? Then keep reading.

A team of experts with a curious nature

You will join a team of 38 highly skilled developers with a passion for their craft. In the team, we are always curious, and together, we eagerly seek out new technologies, practices and methodologies to incorporate into our software portfolio. Our culture is informal and learning-based – and you will get the opportunity to leverage your existing skill set as an experienced software developer and add new skills continuously along the way. We are a social team that loves foosball, running, biking, beers, playing music, boardgames and sports. We are also a team with many passionate parents, and we understand what it means to be an ambitious developer and a dedicated parent at the same time. One final (and important) note: the humour in the team is, in our own opinion, unprecedented.

Use your experience to shape the team and the system

The product you will be building when joining DC is all new. It is part proprietary and part third-party system. You will be part of a new development team, and you will have a great opportunity to shape the team and the product alike. You will experience a very direct impact of your work when working with business stakeholders that also happen to be your colleagues. You will see the software you built being used every day and can influence it using the entirety of your skill set.

You will start out by learning our tech stack and the way we work in DC. Of course, you will have all the assistance you need, and you will be assigned a mentor throughout your onboarding process to help you land on your feet. Down the road, you will utilise your experience in software design and development to continue heightening the technical level in the team. You will be part of designing new systems in cross-functional projects and will have a direct impact on the full project lifecycle.

"You will develop unique systems that play a real part in the green energy transition. Add in algorithmic trading as the competitive edge and you have a pretty exciting cocktail."
