Developer roles at Drives
The developer of tomorrow is multidisciplinary. We are using intelligent, electrified and energy-efficient solutions to help build a better future. To do this, we need to build the best software and ensure that our software can handle the problems of tomorrow. With more than 10 million lines of code and more than 500 developers working on our codebase, we need the best people to handle the complexity and push the newest feature, while ensuring top-of-the-line performance and the safety our customers expect. Our developers need to be able to work across disciplines and see challenges from many different angels. The developer teams of tomorrow are self-organizing, empowered and heterogeneous.
Software engineering at Danfoss Drives is done mostly in C, C++ and MATLAB Simulink. We utilize a broad range of methods to ensure the correctness of our code including hardware-in-the-loop.
Control engineering concerns the working with real-time embedded software development from specification to coding and unit validation. At Danfoss Drives we are 100% committed to AC Drives and at the center is control engineering.
Ensuring the correctness and quality of software solutions requires a broad range of skills. Test engineering works across multiple teams analyzing, developing and maintaining automated test programs.
FPGA engineering means developing from hardware interface all to way to software interface using state of the art devices and processor systems.
To provide the best solutions for our customers, application engineers works on both our main products and custom solutions. An application engineer works in both PLC, model based design in MATLAB Simulink and custom software at Danfoss Drives.
To facilitate an agile working environments at Danfoss Drives, the scrum masters foster a culture of agility and coach their teams in the correct mindset.
DevOps engineer at Danfoss Drives ensure a smooth process for building, automation and CI/CD pipelines. DevOps support all other software development teams and work across multiple project and teams.

Explore our main locations below and see which roles are represented at each location.
Danfoss Drives uses leading @Typhoon HIL Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) technology to drive outstanding frontline customer support. Søren Bondesen, Senior Director of Software & Control Engineering, explains how using HIL simulation can reduce customer support response times as well as increase high-quality drives performance.
Testing of bigger drives and motors is tricky! And can easily take weeks. But with the @Typhoon HIL, Inc. simulator, it’s not only easy but also fast to perform various tests, ensuring minimum response times in our customer support. The importance of which cannot be overstated. Application Engineer at Danfoss Drives, Søren Bækhøj Kjær, shares just what makes the Typhoon HIL solutions a unique tool for engineers.
We have a history of engineering solutions that push the boundaries of what's possible, rising to increasingly complex challenges, delivering exceptional results, and meeting the needs our of customers.
