Careers at Danske Commodities

Make an impact with us

At Danske Commodities, we’re a collective of thinkers and doers, working together to create a viable energy future. And we love every second of it!

When you join Danske Commodities, you become part of a flat organisation with an open-door policy. We spend our workdays in an airy office in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus, and have small teams situated in Copenhagen, London, Hamburg, Istanbul, Stamford, Singapore and São Paolo. We work to enable the energy transition by making it a viable business and are driven by a need to constantly better things. If you are too, we could very well be the right place for you.

Who we are

Big thinkers, industry-shapers and all-round decent people.

We’re aspiring chefs, runners, parents, beekeepers, gamers – the list goes on. We’re also a company of highly specialised experts within our fields. 75% of our employees hold a master’s degree or higher, but it’s actually our diversity of ideas we’re most proud of. Our story started with a bright idea and ideas are still the foundation of our development.

Who you are

Be you. With us.

Although we may highlight that our people are among the best and brightest, it’s your passion we really care about. We expect you to care. About your work. About your own and your colleagues’ collective successes. And about the difference we make at Danske Commodities. We choose character and culture over suits and ties, so your first order of business: be yourself.

What characterises us

We combine speed and scale
You’ll get all the benefits of working at a small company, including swift decision-making, a flat hierarchy and the opportunity to actually see the results and impact your work makes, combined with the vision and financial strength that comes with being part of Equinor, which has 20,000 employees worldwide.
We have a flexible approach
We offer our employees flexible working hours, including the opportunity to work from home up to two days a week. We recognise the importance of being remote-friendly, but also believe that there is no substitute for face-to-face collaboration. Both are important elements of our overall work philosophy.
We enjoy spending time together beyond work
With +100 yearly sports and social events, a bicycle club, book club, student network, wine club, CS:GO team and many more social networks to be part of, there are plenty of opportunities to gather in and outside office hours.
We give lots of responsibility, if you want it
We don’t like micromanaging, so we provide the freedom, trust and responsibility you need to thrive. Even though energy markets never stand still, we advocate a healthy balance between time at work and time off work. Otherwise, it’s just no fun.
We embrace individuality while cultivating collaboration
All of us are passionate about our respective subject areas, but we’re also all about breaking down silos and walking the extra mile to help each other succeed. You’ll see traders, quants, business developers and technology specialists working side by side. Why? Because energy trading is a team sport – and we need all our MVPs to win!
We’re committed to your development
Development is not just a key ingredient for you to realise your potential – it’s integrated in the way we work. If you choose to join us, we promise you’ll do more than just join something’. You’ll add something. You’ll innovate. And you’ll grow.

Arne is like no other

His calm demeanor not only helps create the best environment for the bees he keeps in his garden. It also makes him a great team leader.

Top in class employee satisfaction

The internationally renowned Global Employee and Leadership Index (GELx) positions our company as Top in class’ in several categories. In 2023, collaboration remains our top driver, scoring 88 out of 100. See more of our results here.

A bond beyond business

We have plenty of get-togethers both in and outside the office. From team-building events to themed office parties, there’s always something exciting happening. Our annual DC Days trip is another great example: Two days dedicated to refreshing our minds and creating memories that last a lifetime.

Students get responsibility. Not the coffees.

We want to make the most of everything – your talent included. Whether you are a student, a recent graduate or in the very early stages of your career, we have a wide range of job opportunities for you. Roughly 15% of our people are student employees and we are known to give young talents lots of responsibility and the platform to make a real impact in an ever-changing energy industry.
