Meteorologist for our Trading unit

Would you like to use your meteorological skills to support some of the most successful power and gas trading teams in Europe? And are you looking to join a team where your colleagues are always curious to investigate new forecasting methods? Then we might have the perfect job for you.

Meteorology at Danske Commodities
Danske Commodities (DC) is an international energy trading company. Every day, we complete more than 5750 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most. In the Meteorology team, our most important task is to predict how the weather landscape influences the energy market. Our weather forecasts are critical to trading decisions made within seconds, as well as long-term investments. Using machine learning methods along with good old-fashioned meteorology craftmanship, we support our traders delivering advice, daily forecasts and ad hoc analyses.

Become an expert in how meteorology impacts the energy market
You will join a team of six committed meteorologists and analysists, who work closely together with the trading departments. We all share a common goal to support and advise on well-founded trading decisions and strategies where weather and weather forecasting influence the markets.

Starting out, you will be introduced to the team, your tasks and your closest stakeholders. You will be familiarised with our short-term and long-term meteorology desks and you will start forecasting within few days of employment. You will experience days where you deliver perfect forecasting results as well as days where your forecasting skills are challenged. The real success lies in keeping a continuous focus on improving forecasting quality and risk assessment to ensure trust in your forecasts. In the longer run, you will experience the magic, when your forecasts become fundamental for profitable energy trading decisions.

We continuously work to push the limits of forecasting to help the traders strike the best deals
