Meet our colleagues

Hannah - Software Engineer

What do you work with?

I started as student IT, but I now work as a Software Engineer in CorePayment, where I primarily help develop and maintain the MobilePay backend.

What do you especially like about your job?

I am fairly new in my position, so what I really enjoy is collaborating and exchanging ideas with my colleagues and learning from their experience. It is really rewarding to see that my fresh ideas can add value to our technical solutions and to the team.

Hannah, IT Software Engineer, Denmark 

Alexander - Security Engineer

What do you work with?

I started working in Group IT as a student and joined full-time after graduation. I am part of the Application Security team, where we test software and systems in the organisation for security vulnerabilities to protect the bank from cyber-attacks.

What do you especially like about your job?

The IT systems of the bank are complex and use a wide range of technologies; old and new. That allows me to develop my skills in many different areas, while also gives me the opportunity to dig deep into specific topics that interest me.

Alexander, Cyber Security, Denmark 

Sayok - Software Engineer

If I have to describe my 6+ years with Danske Bank in a single word, it would be ‘Growth’. Starting out as a software engineer working on legacy platforms, I now work with a team, which is responsible for driving digital transformation for the bank. The Cloud development journey is an important area in that spectrum. We equip developers including campus recruits with tools, the expertise and the training to embrace the transformation effectively. Apart from core engineering projects, I am also involved in strategic collaboration driven projects where we support other business units.
At Danske Bank, we have end-to-end ownership of the project, which makes it both challenging and exciting. The recognition and appreciation I have received from the organisation only serve as inspiration to deliver further break through results.

Simonas - Cloud team manager

What do you work with?
I am leading a team of software engineers and experts who are constantly improving Danske Bank’s Private Cloud experience for thousands of Danske Bank’s IT Developers.


What do you especially like about your job?

With moderate effort and some lines of clever code, my team has saved thousands of developer hours on deploying applications to the Private Cloud. Those time savings and the huge impact are reasons why I particularly love and am excited about my job.

Simonas, Cloud team manager, Vilnius 

A challenging industry

What I really enjoy about working in Danske and the financial industry are the challenges. We work with real-time transactions. This means that everything we do has a huge impact and that a slight mistake can have big consequences. Having to stay sharp and on my toes is intellectually stimulating. I have also had great support from my managers in my ambition to work towards a role as business analyst. They have really helped me believe in myself and develop the skill set necessary to flourish in my new role.
