Operations Research Developer - Algorithms

Location: Wommelgem, Antwerp (Belgium)

From the early days of OMP, mathematical optimization algorithms have been a key element in the state-of-the-art supply chain planning and optimization software of OMP. To keep satisfying the increasing needs for optimization throughout the various parts of the supply chain planning process, OMP is looking for an Operations Research Developer. 

You will extend and improve our proprietary LP/MIP solver engine, tailored to our customer needs. You will work in close collaboration with your fellow software developers while communicating directly with consultants deploying this software in customer applications. This provides the opportunity to participate in mathematical modeling and support.   

Your Challenge

As an Operations Research Developer, you are responsible for the technical analysis and development of mathematical optimization modules and (meta)heuristics that act as an optimization backbone for various application areas throughout our software.

You stay up to date with academics and apply the best insights into our software, with performance being a key value in algorithmic design and implementation.

As a team member you give expert support to users of these modules, delivering them the right tool for the right job.

Depending on your interest and qualifications, you will write and debug mathematical models and assist in customer support.

Your Profile

You have a Master in a Mathematical, Scientific or Engineering field with a focus on operations research algorithms. Having a PhD in one of these fields is a definite advantage. 

You have expert knowledge of the mathematics and algorithms related to Linear and Mixed Integer programming, and you have a good knowledge of related optimization techniques and heuristics. You are convinced about the power of a combination of techniques to achieve the best results. 

You have a solid programming background and you are not only passionate about mathematics, but you also get a kick from making it work in practice by writing well-structured, well-tested and performant software. Working knowledge of Object Oriented Programming, preferably C++, is an asset, as well as experience with multithreading. 

As you will work on complex mathematical software, you need to be very analytical, creative and have strong mathematical ability. 

You are fluent in English. You are fun to work with and a great team player.
