Position: Junior Analyst
Employed since: June 2020
Fun fact: I am what we Danes call a "pilfinger" - someone who touches everything out of curiosity
As long as I remember, I have been striving to understand the world around me. This means that I have always had a strong urge to acquire new skills and to master new technologies from the CD-player that I got at my first birthday to the latest technologies today. With this desire to understand the world around me, I saw only one natural choice for my university studies: Physics.
I wanted to find a student job similar to something I can imagine myself doing after finishing my university studies. Furthermore, I wanted to find a student position where I could develop and acquire new skills. Luckily, I found the perfect match: DC. Working here constantly develops my skill and with a flexible company like DC I have no difficulties following along in my university studies.
Mads Hansen Baattrup, Junior Analyst
I am a Junior Analyst in the Power Markets department where I am part of the analysis team. I spend the majority of my time working with various programming languages to create value for the department. For instance, I have developed web applications visualising weather forecasts, I have been assisting in setting up infrastructure for data management within our department, and I have also been assisting in developing a pricing model. All of which ultimately seeks to assist the traders in improving their decisions.
As an analyst, I spend the majority of my time in front of a computer. However, this is also where similarities between work days end. I spend some days putting finishing touches on various projects. Other days are spent searching for hidden patterns in data to explore possibilities before starting a project. Finally, some days are spent debugging or refactoring trading tools.
The environment is dynamic and with a "there are no bad ideas"-attitude I feel like everything is possible. Colleagues are sparring partners each being experts in some field. I am also motivated by the fact that I learn something new every day from how the market works to some neat Python feature that I can use in my programming. Apart from that, I feel valued and having people around me that rely on the quality of my work really motivates me.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
