Software developer for business-critical IT product

Are you a curious software developer, motivated by the craft? Are you experienced in .NET, Java or similar? And would you like to join a team with unprecedented humour? If yes, yes and yes, then you might be the new software developer we are looking for to join our Software Development – ETRM team!

Software Development – Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM) at Danske Commodities (DC)

As our new software developer in our ETRM team, you will join a team that builds and maintains the centralised trade capturing, position exposure and risk management system landscape of DC. The team supports the entire value chain, from providing relevant market position data to the trading teams and capturing the trades to calculating the value of our positions used as input to determine our risk profile and supporting the confirmation and settlement processes.

Our tech stack is primarily based on the newest .NET versions on which we develop distributed systems using a splash of DDD. We use Apache Pulsar for brokering messages as well as data across the wire (we are proud contributors to the DotPulsar library). We talk REST or gRPC when synchronous communication is appropriate. MSSQL is our go-to database. Software delivery is of course continuous and automated, and we deploy primarily on traditional VMs. All of this is always a moving target as better technologies that can have a positive impact on our ability to deliver reliable and performant systems come along.

You will join a diverse product team of committed developers and business experts, all motivated by their craft. We are always curious, and together we eagerly seek out new tech, practices and methodologies to discuss with each other. The culture is informal, and the humour is unprecedented (by our own accounts). We love to get together for movie nights, go-karting, boardgames, dinners and everything in between.

Your journey as our new software developer

Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the role, your tasks and the technologies we use at DC. The key to short-term success is to gain domain knowledge while working on user stories that will take you through dedicated parts of the product. You will be part of designing new systems in cross-functional projects and will have a direct impact on the full project lifecycle. Also, you will be part of the largest project DC has undertaken to date when we expand the ETRM product to encompass all our gas trading activities together with our parent company Equinor. In time, you will become a trusted sparring partner for the business and have a very direct influence on the direction and development of the product. The ETRM product is critical to all parts of our business and over time you will become an expert in every part of the energy trading domain.
