Database ad­min­is­trat­or

Do you thrive on developing great data solutions? And would you like the opportunity to take ownership of a central tech product’s databases of a global tech trading company? Then you might be the database administrator (DBA) we are looking for!

Here’s what the job entails

In the role, your primary function will be to ensure that the Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM) solutions databases always support the growing business.

Concretely, your areas of responsibility will include the following:

  • coordinate maintenance and development tasks with functional and technical ETRM streams
  • conduct unit and integration tests on systems during release
  • track and report risks, issues and impediments to the leadership group

Meet the team

As our new DBA, you will join our ETRM Center of Excellence (CoE) team. Here, we maintain and enhance the ETRM system landscape, a key enabler for Danske Commodities (DC) to mature and scale how we use trade data, master data and market data, and integrate this with the surrounding value chain. On a daily basis, you will be a key part of the ETRM product team, working closely together with our business teams to ensure we deliver the vast amount of data needed to support all functions across the value chain. Further, you will support the implementation of a project portfolio with your expert knowledge in close collaboration with system analysts, business specialists, software developers, data engineers and infrastructure engineers.

You will join an experienced and diverse team of functional and technical profiles, all motivated to support each other in succeeding. The great range of skills in the team is combined with the shared mission to deliver excellence in the heart of the DC value chain.

You will be working right in the centre of the value chain and be part of ensuring DC’s ability to perform and scale! - Emil Flinker Noergaard, Head of ETRM Center of Excellence

We also imagine that you have:

  • a relevant educational background within Information Technology, e.g. Business Intelligence, Data Science & Engineering or similar
  • the ability and drive to take ownership of the ETRM data model and relevant databases
