Danske Commodities

Freelance Softwarekonsulenter

Recruiting the right people at the right time is one of the biggest challenges for Danske Commodities as they have doubled in size every 11 months since their founding. One way they deal with this challenge is by using Mjølner’s consultants. Mjølner’s consultants ensure flexibility and consistency for Danske Commodities.

A KEY ROLE IN DC GROWTH

Mjølner plays a key role in Danske Commodities’ growth race. We help the international energy trader develop software that delivers a competitive advantage.

Danske Commodities is an independent, international energy trader founded in 2004. Today, the company employs more than 400 people and trades in more than 30 countries.

 

IT AS A DIFFERENTIATOR

IT and software play a vital role in Danske Commodities’ value creation. Danske Commodities uses IT to optimize management and processes. And most importantly: to give their trading activities a competitive advantage.

The combination of trading know-how and intelligent IT systems is the key to their success:

 

“We optimize and quantify our trading know-how through software. Customized software enables us to make crucial decisions in a fraction of a second and sets us apart from our competitors.”

– Rasmus Lundgaard Pedersen, CIO of Danske Commodities.

 

SCALING TO DEMAND

Recruiting the right people at the right time is one of the biggest challenges for Danske Commodities as they have doubled in size every 11 months since their founding. One way they deal with this challenge is by using Mjølner’s consultants.

The first Mjølner software consultant at Danske Commodities started in April 2013. Today, a dozen consultants work on-site at Danske Commodities’ headquarter.

 

AGILITY IS ESSENTIAL

The energy market is big business – conducted at a breathtaking pace. It changes every minute, as does the demand for customized software.

Working in this rapidly changing environment calls all your skills into action, and applying them in the right way, at the right time, is essential.

 

“I’ve been at Danske Commodities for four months now, and have already worked on five projects using about ten different technologies. I make use of a wide range of my competencies, and when I fall short, I have a back-up team of IT professionals at Mjølner.”

– Christian Stenz, Senior Software Architect, Mjølner Informatics.

 

Mjølner’s consultants ensure flexibility and consistency for Danske Commodities. Add Mjølner’s experience and competencies to that, and you have a promising set-up.
