Job Description

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'll be based in East London in a small, collaborative team environment; there's a shuttle bus from the mainline station and lots of pop-up food stalls just outside to make lunchtimes interesting.

Driven by technology this company is able to offer a remote interview / onboarding process during the current social distancing measures and offer flexible working conditions moving forward including the ability to work from home part of the week.

*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

As an Optimisation Specialist you will earn a competitive salary (to £100k) plus benefits.
