Pauline Rothe Jensen
I was born in Copenhagen and have since then lived in Germany and the US, but Aarhus is the city where I have lived the longest and therefor it feels like home. I have a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s in Technology Based Business Development from Aarhus University. As part of my master’s degree, I spent a semester abroad working for Lockheed Martin in Texas before joining DC.
Why I wanted to work for DC
I wanted to work in a young and dynamic atmosphere, where you get the responsibility and opportunity to be able to make a difference. DC also has a strong focus on people development and helps me further develop my skills within different fields such as programming and problem solving.
What I do
I am a business developer in Climate Markets at DC, where my primary task is to provide knowledge and analyses to ensure well informed decision making and create scalable sales strategies, enabling the highest value for our trading activities within biomethane and carbon credits. Besides this, our unit is continuously on the lookout to broaden our business areas, which entails monitoring current developments in various technologies and climate products that can further contribute to the green transition of society.
My typical workday
As a business developer I don’t really have a typical workday. My day usually begins with getting an overview of developments in ongoing collaborations and trades with counterparties. Some days are packed with meetings or urgent issues to follow up on, while other days leave me more time to conduct long-term analyses. We trade quite unique products and therefore we are in close contact with different stakeholders throughout the organization such as legal, risk and credit, which demands good stakeholder management.
The best part of my job
I am surrounded by highly dedicated and talented colleagues which keeps me motivated each day. When working with business development, there are always unforeseen events that make every day different from the other which keeps the job interesting and challenging. There truly exists a one-team mentality at DC, which makes it a great place to work.
