At DSV, we invest heavily in IT to develop systems that give us a clear competitive edge. That results in really exciting projects and challenging integrations. I promise you, you won’t be bored,” says Peter Olsen, Senior Manager, Corporate Integrations.

Head up API Development

Awaiting your arrival is a global team of 5 developers in South Africa and 1 in India. Based at our HQ in Hedehusene, you will lead the process of doing API integrations among all the applications in the entire DSV organisation. Moreover, you will join our global management team of 4 managers and 5 team leads and play an active part in setting the direction for all DSV’s integrations.

Our projects and requests are versatile and come from both other business units as well as internally in Global IT. Right now, for example, we are in the process of transferring our API platform to the cloud. Regardless of the type of project, you will:

  • Engage with IT and business stakeholders to ensure open, clear and timely communication
