Danske Commodities, Århus

Join a team of innovators and early adopters
In Automated Trading we support our business teams in developing, implementing and monitoring algo strategies. We are driven by our common goal of making better and faster trading decisions, always pushing our strategies and analyses into new territory. Daily, we work with fundamentals such as weather and pricing data that affect the market we trade in - and in order to be one step ahead, we always need to be aware of new developments within machine learning.

We are a team of talented specialists ranging from economists, meteorologist, physicists and machine learning specialists. Beside working alongside a skilled team with many different backgrounds, you will also get to work closely with traders, software developers and business intelligence consultants.

Avid programmer with an analytical and structured approach
We imagine that you have a relevant Master’s or PhD degree within Data Science, Engineering, Physics or similar. In other words, a background that has given you strong capabilities in working with data and data analysis - and made you capable of presenting your findings to others. You approach your work in a structured manner, always looking for ways to optimise and improve things, and you can see yourself working in the intersection between data handling, machine learning and trading.

Become an expert and make a difference
No matter what your experience level is, 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 be familiar with our coding principles and algorithmic framework. After that, you will take part in supporting a new or a current algo strategy. In the long term, you will be responsible for your own area within our algo development - ranging from working with weather data, a specific geographical area to specific products. Using machine learning and tools supporting automated trading, will be the main part of your work day, and through that, you will make a direct difference to our business.
