Data Engineer for tech-driven trading company

Are you passionate about data engineering and do you dream of a job with the opportunity to clearly see the value you create every day? And are you always eager to find the next solution to challenge the status quo? Then you might be our new colleague to join our team of ambitious data engineers.

Join the ride to become the world’s best data-driven energy trading company

In our Data Engineering & Architecture team (also known as DARC), we empower business users, data scientists and data analysts to discover, explore and analyse relevant data. We deliver fast and efficient data services to support our entire trading value chain and ensure the best possible support for data-driven decision-making – and we work closely with the business teams and traders while managing a short time-to-market and a continuous delivery model. Our goal is to be the best data-driven energy trading company in the world. No more, no less!

Join a curious and social team that loves learning new things together

You will be part of a team of data engineers who love to learn new things together, which is reflected in our close collaboration and professional development. We like to explore new ideas and continuously expand our technical horizon within the data engineering domain. We are curious, passionate about data and thrive in an innovative environment. You will experience a culture which is characterised by having fun while working hard and reaching our goals as a team.

Be part of shaping and executing our data strategy

Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the Data Engineering team, your role and our data platforms – primarily built on Microsoft SQL technologies. You will join a team that supports our business activities, and you will be working shoulder-to-shoulder with analysts and traders. Through close sparring with your team, you will learn our delivery model and how we interact with our stakeholders. Our business model is heavily reliant on our use of data, making your role crucial for our business and our traders. On the longer term, you will take a more permanent role in the team dedicated to one of our business units, delivering on strategic projects organised around a specific business domain. Together, we will define tasks and responsibilities aligned with your professional interests, ambitions and competencies.

"You will work close to the trading business and solve value-adding problems in one of the most data-driven industries." - Lars Kühn Thomsen, Chief Data Officer.
