We are a group of experts on mathematics, algorithms, numerical methods and software engineering.

We are looking for a new colleague with a solid software engineering expertise to further define and drive the next steps of our technology roadmap, with the primary goal to reduce lead-time of implementation, improve run-time performance, protection of IP, etc.


  • Closely collaborate with our architects to drive the next steps of our technology roadmap, where you take ownership for (parts) of the realization, by e.g. developing prototypes and coordinating development tasks
  • Collaborate with our team of experts developing or improving algorithms / mathematical models and occasionally also contribute to the development from a software point of view, with a focus on coaching others by hands on work.
  • Create a solid software design for algorithms or parts of it, where speed and memory usage should be optimized
  • Write clear documentation
  • All of the above in close collaboration with team members and stakeholders (e.g. Group lead, Product owner, …)
