Mathias Holsko Jespersen

Junior Software Developer, Software Development – Operations

Mathias has a bachelor’s degree in Software Technology and is currently studying Computer Science at Aarhus University.

For many years, Mathias has had an interest in cyber security and programming – and before his studies, he even participated in several hackathons and completed various programming certificates. This early interest was also the main reason behind his choice to study Software Technology.

His journey with DC started back in 2018, while he was in the third semester of his bachelor’s degree. Today, he works as a junior software developer in the ACE (Advanced Data Collection Engine) team which is responsible for collecting various data for DC – data that are used, among others, by our traders

When Mathias was on his bachelor’s, he did an internship with DC. During his internship, he began to work with C# which enabled him to contribute both to developing an internal web tool as well as the modules that ensure the execution of Python scrapers and data processing. 

As part of his bachelor’s project, he developed a user interface for a chess game. The output of each move was sent to a robotic arm which then moved the physical chess pieces on the board – cool, huh? And besides creating cool robotic arms, Mathias is also quite the adrenaline junkie – he both has a helicopter ride and a parachute jump planned for the next year. And oh yes, he has just bought a motorcycle.
