Would you like a job with a direct impact on the performance of one of Europe’s leading energy trading companies? And does working with machine learning and tools supporting automated trading sound like fun to you? Then you might be our new quantitative analyst for our Automated Trading team.

Automated Trading at Danske Commodities (DC)

In Automated Trading, we support our business teams with developing, implementing and monitoring algo trading strategies. On a daily basis, we work with fundamentals such as weather and pricing data that affect the markets we trade in. We are driven by our common goal of making better and faster trading decisions, always pushing our strategies and analyses to new heights. And to be one step ahead, we always need to be aware of new developments within machine learning and algo trading.

You will join a team of skilled specialists ranging from economists, meteorologists, physicists and machine learning specialists. We are a team that set the bar high while always supporting each other – and we make sure to have fun as we go along. Besides working closely with skilled team members with diverse backgrounds, you will also get to work with stakeholders across the business, such as traders, software developers and data engineers.

Your journey as our new quantitative analyst

No matter your level of experience, we will make sure you get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks, the power markets and how we work. Your first assignment will be to dive into our wide range of data and become familiar with our coding principles and algorithmic framework. After that, you will begin to partake in the development, implementation and monitoring of both current and new algo strategies. On the longer term, you will become responsible for your own area within our algo development – ranging from working with weather data, a specific geographical area to specific products. By using machine learning in your daily work, you will contribute to our automated trading setup, giving your work a direct impact on the performance of our trading business.
