As an OR Consultant at ORTEC you will get the chance to design, build and improve our complex software solutions!

In the role of Operations Research Consultant, you use advanced optimization and analytical methods to help organizations solve problems and make better choices. You collaborate with the customer to really understand the problem, translate their needs into a mathematical model and apply OR modeling techniques while designing and developing software tools for them. Because we deliver complex solutions, you will face many different types of challenges. You work on 1 or multiple projects at the same time, depending on the project-size, giving a lot of variation and ample learning opportunities. For each project, you work in small teams consisting of consultants, architects, testers and/or engineers. You are the link between business and IT and you ensure quality, fairness and explainability in the projects you are working on.

We are looking for an OR Consultant with experience in AIMMS development, to support on our existing and new tailor-made AIMMS-solutions for customers in Parcel & Express, Maritime, Pallet Pooling, and others.

Note from Mike (ORSNZ President) I have heard informally that “AIMMS experience is not an absolute must”
