WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

DC is a unique energy trading house not only in Denmark, but in all of Europe. I knew, I would be able to learn a ton coming here and, so far, that view has without a doubt been proven true. Add to that the global journey DC is on, which makes it even more interesting to be here.

I love the competition and daily challenges my work at DC entails

WHAT I DO

I am a trading graduate at DC, which means I will rotate three times through different front office teams over the course of 18 months. My first rotation was in Gas trading where I worked partly in the Systems and Automation team, coding and doing analysis, and partly in short term trading operations. I am currently on the Climate Markets desk, where I trade EUAs and research Carbon pricing.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

Trading, following and reflecting on markets, coming up with trade ideas and factors that might affect and move prices, thinking of ways to gain new edges using data analysis and quant approaches.

THE BEST PART OF MY JOB

Constant fast-paced learning. I get to use the skills I have brought with me and harness them further while developing new ones too. I love the competition and daily challenges my work at DC entails, and people are friendly, sharp and curious for knowledge.
