About Danske Commodities

We are a tech-driven energy trading company that trades power, gas and certificates across 40 markets. Working for a viable energy future, we use our trading expertise to connect producers and large-scale consumers to wholesale markets.


Unsolicited - Quantitative Analyst

Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company that specialises in short-term power and gas trading and offers balancing, optimisation and hedging services to energy producers and suppliers. 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. We process and analyse vast amounts of data every day and we need the best and brightest minds to help us optimise the flow of energy across global markets.
Dedicated quantitative analysts working side by side with our energy traders

At DC, we employ quantitative analysts in various teams and they bring great value in a variety of ways. As a quantitative analyst in one of our trading analysis teams, you will develop trading strategies by gathering and structuring vast amounts of data and turning it into a solid foundation for decision-making. You will develop quantitative models to forecast energy prices, describe market dynamics and price complex products across the global energy markets.

We also employ quantitative analysts in our automation teams, which support our trading teams in developing, implementing and monitoring algorithmic strategies. Here, the teams are driven by the common goal of making better and faster trading decisions, always pushing the strategies and analyses into new territory.

It is also possible to join our Risk Management unit as a quantitative analyst. Here, you will work with developing our risk measure models and calculating figures critical to the organisation, such as realised and unrealised PnL for all business activities as well as associated risk measures.

No matter which team you join, you will work closely with the business, linking trading decisions with quantitative modelling and data.

The energy markets are not the same today as they were yesterday – and tomorrow they will change again. As a quant at DC, you will help us model, forecast and understand these changes.
