Algorithm Engineer

We’re looking for a math geek, like us.


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

You have a solid IT 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 JVM languages such as Java & Kotlin is an asset, as well as experience with writing performant algorithms.

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


As an Algorithm Engineer, you will extend and improve our 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.   Furthermore,

  • 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.
