Operations Research Specialist at Optimeering

We are after an Operations Research Specialist to join our team in Oslo or Bergen. If you want to apply OR to real world decision-making, day in and day out, we want to hear from you.

This position will give you the opportunity to use your expertise to formulate, develop and deliver cutting-edge OR models that provide real value to businesses in Optimeering’s key markets of power and aquaculture. Our projects will challenge you and give you time to think and create – generating innovative solutions, rather than simply churning out the same thing as quickly as possible. Whilst what we do is grounded in the latest academic developments in modelling and algorithm development, our core focus is on delivering practical solutions that provide clear improvements over the existing way of doing things. This is real, applied OR – combining business, industry and process understanding with maths and models to deliver a little bit of magic.

You will work with smart and dedicated people with an interest in OR, analytics and applied maths, learning from each other and contributing in equal measure. This position is a heavy modelling role, and your qualifications will reflect this:

– Minimum post-graduate degree in Operations Research, Industrial Economics, IT, Mathematics or similar with very strong academic records, especially in OR courses.
– Relevant experience from power markets, supply chain management or aquaculture, or a demonstrated ability to quickly learn about and apply your OR skills to new industries.
– A strong ability to communicate complex OR-methods to non-experts and business users.
– A commercial mindset and the desire to apply OR to real world problems.

We can offer you a highly competent and passionate work environment, a flexible and diverse work-day and a compensation package that reflects your background, experience, and the value you add to the company. You will quickly be given a lot of responsibility and you will have the opportunity to help drive the development of a new and growing company. At Optimeering you won’t be one of the “rank and file”, limited by a slow-moving, corporate structure – here your creativity and new ideas are warmly welcomed.

To apply, send us your CV, transcripts, and an email describing a bit about yourself, your goals and what you would like to achieve with us.

For any questions you might have regarding us or the position, please contact Karan Kathuria;

Applications close at 12 pm CET on the 28th of March 2016.
