I was born and raised in Aarhus where I used more than ten years of my youth playing tennis until my knees capitulated. I never really enjoyed school, and after finishing high school I was sure that I would never study again. However, after three gap years with traveling adventures and working different jobs I changed my mind and applied for a bachelor’s degree at BSS. A path that ultimately led me to DC as a student employee in Dispatching (now Power Trading Operations). Five years later I finished school with a master’s in Management Accounting and Control, and a full-time position in DC.
Despite not knowing any people in DC, I stumbled upon a job vacancy that just spoke to me. Needless to say, the ambitious working environment spoke to me as well – so much so that I was employed full-time, having responsibility for all Day Ahead scheduling before I even graduated from my master’s.
Maria Medelby, Senior Process Improvement and Automation Consultant
After having spent some years in dispatching, my manager booted up a new IT team in DC which I chose to join. As process improvement and automation consultant I’m responsible for reducing waste and inefficiency within the business by improving and automating processes using technologies like Python, SQL, Robotics and many others.
My working day varies a lot. Some days are full of engagement time with colleagues across the value chain discovering new areas to improve and automate. Other days are full of meetings with stakeholders to discuss technical solutions, possible future projects or specify requirements for specific projects. Besides this I also have days with long and focused hours where I develop automated solution elements for projects of various sizes.
I really value that my job continuously evolves because it makes it necessary for me to always improve and extend my skills. I enjoy coming to work every day and I have great colleagues.
