Danske Commodities (DC) is on a mission. We want to pave the way for the green transition by making renewable energy a profitable business – and we need skilled software developers like you to do it!
Here’s what the job entailsHere’s what the job entails
As a software developer in DC, you will be doing both greenfield and brownfield development. You will learn to take ideas and convert them to working systems running in a production environment. And the best part is that you will develop systems and then actually see them used to make a difference. Not only that, but we are usually seated right next to our trading colleagues and frequently chat about how to make the software even better. The satisfaction from impacting the full lifecycle of our code is hard to describe. You will have to experience it for yourself! “You build it, you deploy it, you run it” is our mentality, and you will learn to appreciate fully automated continuous integration and delivery. And more concretely, your tasks include:
develop high quality systems
maintain and continually
improve proprietary systems
review other team members’ code and share learning points between you
be curious and keep learning new thingsfollow the technology development and new coding trends
Meet the teamYou will join a team of more than 50 motivated software developers. We are a laid-back, yet curious, bunch - and we eagerly seek out new technologies, practices and methodologies to incorporate into our daily work. Our culture is informal and learning-based, and you will get the opportunity to leverage your existing skill set and add new competencies along the way.
We enjoy getting together across the entire team for movie nights, go-karting, boardgames, biking, dinners and everything in between. Oh, and then there is the mythical and unprecedented developer end-of-season holiday quiz… You don’t want to miss out! Some of us are also parents, and we understand what it means to be a professional developer and a parent at the same time. Need flexibility to make the batteries last all day? We got you covered on that as well.
Tech-stuff – always finding the best solution
On the technical side, we are primarily based on .NET6, although we venture into Python and Java when needed. 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 of the DotPulsar library). MSSQL is our go-to database, but we have a select few other databases around as well. We talk REST or gRPC when synchronous communication is appropriate – sometimes with a bit of GraphQL as well. Software delivery is of course continuous and automated, and we deploy on both traditional VMs as well as our brand new OpenShift cluster. This also means that we are shifting from Windows to Linux and from servers to containers.
"Join us and impact our journey from being a tech-enabled company to a tech-driven company!" - Henrik Skaarup, Head of Software Development
But enough about us… over to you!As you will be working closely with fellow developers as well as stakeholders across the business, we expect that you are a collaborator. We also expect that you are able to apply yourself wherever you can add value and that you are not afraid to take the lead if you have a great idea. Further, we imagine that you:wish become an expert in .NET or further your existing .NET skillswant to be able to deliver software full-cycle – from requirements and coding to deployment, monitoring and maintenancewant to collaborate with team members on how to improve the software craftsmanship in the team
