Ordbogen A/S - About us & our products...

We certainly do not have a shortage of words; in fact, we have quite the opposite! Ordbogen.com is our company name and our flagship product. As Denmark's largest online dictionary website, we host over 60 different online dictionaries and have over 1 million article views per day. In addition to this, we offer 2 transformational, online educational products: Grammatip and Educas. Grammatip.com is our online tool for teaching Danish spelling and Danish, English, German and French grammar to Danish school children (0th-10th grade) and adult learners. Educas.com is our digital 'blackboard' for Folkeskole teachers; via this portal, teachers have access to thousands of pre-made learning exercises, spanning all subjects from the 1st-10th grade in Denmark. Both Grammatip and Educas' exercises are assigned and solved online, with new exercises being uloaded regularly.

We live here

We liked Odense, and we decided to stay. With easy access to both Jylland and Sjælland, and a thriving student community, it seemed like the perfect fit for us.

Don’t know much about Odense?

With nearly 200 000 inhabitants it is Denmark’s 3rd largest city. Flushed with culture and history, and truly focused on internationalisation - it is a great fit for Danes and internationals alike.


With a work culture like no other

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”

Here at Ordbogen we emphasise work/life balance and are fairly certain that our work culture defies the norm in every aspect. Need a brain break? Challenge your coworkers to a game of MarioKart. Build some lego. Blow off some steam at our ritual ‘Friday’s Bar’. Come skydiving with us. Travel the world with your team for a company conference. We know that our employees are the backbone of our business, of our success - and we make sure our workplace environment reflects that.

Your time is flexible

We know you have a life. Maybe you have kids, maybe you’ve got a dog… or maybe you just need that extra hour of sleep in the morning. Whatever the reason, your work hours can be flexible.

Our Tantalising Canteen

Our canteen is stocked with libations for every taste: Colas, milk, soda water, coffee, gourmet teas and fresh fruit baskets all around the office for a healthy treat. Our fully catered daily lunch has an impressive weekly lineup with foods to impress even the pickiest of eaters.

Hardware and Software

We want you to be comfortable in your technology shoes here at Ordbogen.com; we welcome MAC lovers, Linux supporters and Windows fans alike! We typically use VIM editor, but we're flexible on your preferences for that too.
