Our Values


We are happy to contribute effectively outside our specialization and we love to learn eagerly and rapidly. We are exhibiting bias-to-action and are avoiding analysis-paralysis.


We are passionate about our ambitious goals. We inspire others with our thirst for action and are celebrating wins together.


We love approaching challenges from an unconventional angle. We either succeed or we learn valuable lessons. We enjoy discovering practical solutions to hard problems.


We work for our customers with integrity. We are honest, down to earth, know what we can do and where we come from.


We are not focusing on ego-action but concentrate on accomplishing what is best for the company as a team. We are making time to help each other out and share information openly and proactively.


With our skill to think strategically we are making wise decisions and are able to identify root causes and get beyond treating symptoms.

Work with us - Join our journey

Deliver Business Solutions

We are engaged in several bespoke client projects where our Technology is solving specific business problems. We are also building Deon Business Solutions to service many clients.

Deliver Core Technology Products

We are expanding our core technology products that are the foundation for business solutions. Products include domain-specific language design and implementation,  financial instrument modelling, distributed technology and ledger design & integration.

Technology Research

We try out new concepts that we believe will bring future value to our customers. Some of them may lead to new Core Technology products. We collaborate closely with universities and engage individuals for their thesis and PhDs.

Current open positions

We are looking for a frontend developer – parental leave substitute (barselsvikariat)

At Deon Digital, we are building tools and applications based on a declarative domain-specific language for describing contracts, allowing both existing business arrangements and new kinds of financial instruments to be represented and managed. Our Copenhagen-based team is small and fast-moving, so everyone ends up doing a little bit of everything and there are good opportunities to grow. 

Right now, we are looking for a parental leave substitute (barselsvikariat) for a frontend developer, beginning as soon as possible. In particular, we would like to hire someone who has:

  • Experience building UX/UI
  • Experience with React
  • Experience with TypeScript
  • Some experience with functional programming
  • Experience with other typed programming languages (Java, Haskell, C#…)
  • Some backend development experience

If you have development experience in the financial, banking, or investment domain, or experience developing internal applications for large companies, so much the better. In addition to TypeScript and React, we use Kotlin, Haskell, and Clojure.

We take software quality seriously. We have a strong culture of code review, automated testing, CI, and picking the right tool for the job, and our workflows will be familiar to anyone with experience in contemporary open-source software development. That said, we don’t drown in process. Developers have autonomy – we direct our own work in consultation with our colleagues. We are an international team (⅕ of us are not from Denmark) and our working language is English. 

Our office in Denmark is in a historic building on Christianshavn in central Copenhagen. We are supportive of regularly working from home. 

Application deadline: Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
