Senior Frontend Engineer
Bankdata is a prominent IT company in Denmark, with a history dating back to June 16, 1966, when four employees and the company’s first director, Arne Birkholm, started in small offices in Fynsgade in Fredericia. Their mission was to create smarter accounting solutions for member banks, a project they thought would be quickly completed. Nearly 60 years later, Bankdata is one of Denmark’s major IT companies, with around 900 employees, generating over DKK 1.7 billion in annual revenue. Bankdata’s solutions are used every day by more than 7,500 bank employees, serving nearly 187,000 companies and a total of 1.6 million Danes.
In short, Bankdata provides digital competitiveness to eight Danish financial institutions: Jyske Bank, Sydbank, Ringkjøbing Landbobank, Djurslands Bank, Kreditbanken, Nordfyns Bank, Skjern Bank, and Sparekassen Sjælland-Fyn. They deliver IT systems that are used across Denmark, from the bank app on your smartphone to Denmark’s financial infrastructure.
A significant portion of their revenue is invested in strategic innovation projects that benefit their customers and create value. These projects include tools for bank advisors, self-service solutions for bank customers, integrations with services like mitID and MobilePay, and entirely new products such as a platform for trading complex financial instruments on the international capital market.
Bankdata values flexibility, adaptability to change, and security. Employees at Bankdata are part of a strong community. While they have many team members, they work in smaller, specialized teams following agile principles. You will work in self-organizing teams and have close contact with Bankdata’s customers. Demand for Bankdata’s solutions is high, and they prioritize their tasks to ensure there’s time to recharge outside the office.
