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.


Originator: Brazil

Would you like a job with the opportunity to work together with stakeholders across the globe? And does being part of enabling the energy transition in Brazil sound intriguing to you? Then you might be the experienced originator we are looking for to join our expansion journey in Brazil (São Paulo).
Global Origination at Danske Commodities (DC)
You will join our Global Origination team, which is the market-facing unit for power origination in DC and our parent company Equinor. We shape the future of energy trading together with Equinor who is on a quest to become one of the leading developers of renewable projects in Brazil. In this regard, DC’s role is to support Equinor by serving as route-to-market for all Equinor assets. And we have one goal: to become a top-tier energy trading house in Brazil.

Being the link between project developers, utility companies, big corporates and large industrials, we conduct analyses, develop new business ideas and are responsible for stepping into power purchase agreements (PPAs). We are a diverse team with various nationalities and backgrounds. What we all have in common is our instinctive understanding of market conditions and solid business knowledge – combined with mutual trust and respect for one another.

Your journey as our new originator
We will ensure that you get the best possible start at DC. During your onboarding, you will get a thorough introduction to DC, the Global Trading & Market Development unit and relevant internal stakeholders, including those in Equinor. Your primary focus will be on building the renewable growth project in Brazil together with Equinor and negotiating PPAs.

This job requires regular physical presence at DC’s office in São Paolo and Equinor’s office in Rio de Janeiro, sitting side-by-side with the colleagues responsible for the project development of renewables, trading and portfolio management.

You will be at the forefront of DC and Equinor’s growth within renewables asset management and trading in Brazil
