Managed by: C++ Team

Optimisation Specialist (Optimisation Mathematical Solvers C C++17 PhD R&D) *Remote Interview*. Do you have expertise with mathematical solvers? You could be utilising your knowledge at a well-funded technology start-up and progressing your career solving real-world problems with mathematics.

As an Optimisation Specialist you will join a small team and work closely with the CTO / CEO to build new algorithms on the company's mathematical solver from idea creation through to implementation. The core product is a highly complex mathematically based optimisation solution that uses non-linear equations to turn questions into mathematically based queries.

*You are PhD educated with a background in mathematical optimisation with extensive experience of researching and developing algorithms for solving (nonconvex and convex) MINLPs (mixed integer nonlinear programs) and MILPs (mixed integer linear programs); particularly strong in MINLPs and/or MILPs (research level)
*You have experience of solving real-world problems by applying optimisation techniques coupled with strong modelling skills
*You have experience with optimisation modelling systems (e.g. AMPL, GAMS and AIMMS) and solvers (e.g. CPLEX, GUROBI, XPRESS, KNITRO, CONOPT, IPOPT, BONMIN, BARON)
*You're able to code with C / C+ including multi-threading and have a good understanding of distributed systems engineering and GPU programming
*You have experience with designing and implementing high performance mathematical optimisation solvers
*You're collaborative and able to take a lead role able to communicate effectively with the technical team and sales / marketing
*You can work fairly autonomously and take ownership of new projects, building stuff from scratch

Integrity, Commitment, Quality and Endeavour

"As a software developer working in financial services looking for a role outside the sector... Oliver took this vague request and ran with it, producing specs for roles.... that were exactly what I was looking for... Oliver's and Client Server's cross-sector networks made this move possible, and it's a very unique aspect to their offering."

Stephen - Senior Developer


"Nick (and Client Server in general) are quite different from other recruiters I have dealt with. He takes the time to understand where you are and what you want next so that he can find the right job rather than just any job. The communication throughout the process was perfectly pitched and I'm very happy with the end result."

Julian - Senior Developer​


"I have worked with Client Server before to my satisfaction. They provide a very professional approach, excellent communication and an overall exceptional service in recruitment... David represents those values extremely well... I had no questions unanswered. He has organised the process with flawless precision. I would always recommend him."

Marton - Head of Development​
