Bridging the gap between IT and business

"DFDS is a great work environment. Your journey doesn’t have to end in one area of DFDS, there are many opportunities."


"IT is so much more today than socks with sandals”, laughed Camilla Skovbjerg Scheffmann, as she described her DFDS career journey. “I didn’t consider myself IT, so I wouldn’t have applied for an IT job”. And yet, she finds herself spearheading the development of a major IT system called Velocity, that is transforming the way we do business.

Camilla started at DFDS as a logistics trainee. During her eleven years with DFDS, she’s gone from a user of IT systems to super user of the old system, to starting up a whole new solution that supports the DFDS strategy going forward. She brings to the Velocity project a deep understanding of the business and an opening, questioning mind.

The Velocity project is in the implementation phase now, after more than a year of software development. Along the way, DFDS has supported Camilla’s development, giving her and her team training and certifications in Agile, Scrum and SAFE development methods. “The whole team got an Agile lift during the development phase. It helped the team and it supported the individual members in their career journey,” said Camilla.
